hi,hopefully some one can help

was driving flat out on a big straight then all off a sudden the bike lost power and wouldnt start, let the bike cool down and it started but cut straight back out but when it started it started chapping like hell, inspected the coolant and there was none, so i orderd a new top end rebuild kit hopefully this will fix but do you think there any more damange with the bike chapping when it starts

no coolant means it leaked into the oil through a bad water pump seal..
That is not necessarily correct, he may have leaked and burnt it all in the cylinder. It could have leaked out somewhere else like a hose fitting or hole in line or hole in radiator. Who knows where it went?

What is chapping?

dont no what is chapping, its like a chapping/ticking noise, cumming from the top end i think gets louder as where the exhuast joins the head, csnt really tell as kept cutting out and the fact i didnt want to run it, gonna strip it and have to look got told it couldb small end bearing or big end
