Ovalized crank - problems to the engine?

My crank is ovalized, would like to know if i should stop to ride the bike still i get a new transmission, or if i can ride it carefully untill i change it. Any secondary effects inside the engine?
Thank you

What is "Ovalized" ? Is there a bearing journal out of round? You are talking about the crankshaft, right?

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

I mean the sprocket (the dented wheel that is pulled by the chain, in the back wheel) got oval, meams its pulling the chain irregularly. Even the tyre is worned out one half more than the other half

Wow, wouldn't take a chance with a failing chain. Expect catastrophic damage if that were to happen.

eduardo .. Whatever the issue is, it doesn't sound good and get the bike looked at by a competent Mecânico...

Have the rear hub inspected at the same time.

I have gone over 260 km/h a couple of times, but didnt go over that speed, and i just feel a vibration on the handlebars, a bit more than normal. Should i stop riding...? Or just ride smooth and not cover 150 or something like it?
