medicbaldwin Another question for you all. I put a cycle concepts drag pak clutch in my bike a year ago. Is there any maintenance I need to mess with to keep the clutch working as it should? Buddy of mine was saying something about pulling the stack apart and rotating steels and fibers from inside to outside as Kawi's tend to cook the inner plates? Any thoughts on this? I'll give dwayne a call as well.

medicbaldwin Hopefully i'm not slowly stumbling into a problem. Went to the track last night and every time i'd hit the track the bike would studder through 1st gear, seemed like it was too low on fuel. I added more fuel to the bike until the low fuel light turned off, about 1.5 gallons, and it continued to do the same thing. It did seem to get better as the night went on, but still studdering. Anybody have a similar problem? I was wondering if possibly my fuel pump is taking a crap on me? Also, i've been running VP T4 fuel, which is a 108 octane unleaded oxygenated fuel and i haven't been draining the fuel out. Should I drain and "flush" with pump gas?

medicbaldwin I'll give it a go Spaz. Send me ur info and I'll get some $ your way.

SpazOnaZX They may be some small differences, but it's the same engine case... a lot of the aftermarket pans fit the 06-10 range. If you would like to verify, I think I have an extra gen 2 pan laying around.... cover shipping and I'll send it to you to check, and you can keep it if it works out. If it doesn't work out, I'll pay return shipping and take it back.... just let me check after work today to see if I still have it.

medicbaldwin From what I've seen online, the style and shape of the 2nd gen pan is different.
07-27-2017 09:46 AM
SpazOnaZX ...just an FYI: the second gen pan should also work on that motor if you're looking for an OEM pan.

medicbaldwin Last weekend I had an unfortunate turn of events. I cracked my OE oil pan with either a hard wheelie or on the return road? Either way it's cracked and leaking. Been looking on line and found this setup:
https://www.summitracing.com/parts/i...SABEgLoSPD_BwE

anybody use one of these pans? They look like a nice piece and you can get it with a pickup for $299. It's not a swinging pickup, so, not sure if this will pose a problem for drag racing? Unless the OE pickup sits deeper in the pan or at the lowest point, i've never had any oil pressure or oiling issues with the OE setup.
Looking for some feedback. Also, if you have a OE Gen3 oil pan you wanna get rid of, lemme know. PM, reply or email: medicbaldwin@gmail.com

SpazOnaZX They weld up great, so long as the TIG welder knows what they are doing. **CLEAN** is the key; removing all the paint 1" around the crack, and heating/baking ALL of the oil out of the crack(s) before you have it welded.... solvent wash and/or contact cleaner after the fact. It's also not a bad idea to drill a small hole at the end of each end of the crack to relieve the stress and keep it from running away on it's own. Depending on the labor price of said welder, it may be cheaper to snag a used one off ebay.... have to call around your area.

medicbaldwin Found the problem. Yup, header smacked the pan and cracked it.
Anybody have luck getting this welded up?
