    Looks like I'm taking 2 weeks off from riding.

    I didn't double check my oil fill cap and blew all the oil out of my motor and the oil alarm went on while I was doing a wot pull at 8800 rpm. I cleaned the hull out refilled the oil and when I mail it it revs for a second and then drops to 6900-7000 rpm . Pulled the oil filter and found some fools gold . Looks like I'm rebuilding it this week .

    Ouch man that hurts. What are you thinking about doing on the rebuild? Get the motor ready for a turbo setup!

    Shoot that sucks, didn't even think that forgetting the oil cap could cause that, maybe a bit but that much damn.

    Hmm gold means bearing material, everything else is aluminum or steel

    Yea it was a mess , after being wide open for 20-30 seconds that oil had no chance to stay in the motor . I'll have it out and ripped apart tomorrow . I'll post pics of the carnage ( hopefully not much )
