Busted My Oil Pan

went to the track sunday. i changed maps earlier in the week and couldnt get better than a 9.7 on my 10. i tried to load the map i usually ran (a best of 9.4) but it wouldnt send it to my bike. it kept giving me an error. it would load other maps but not the one i usually ran. dindt make sense. i loaded other maps and still couldnt get my e.ts down past a 9.7. for some reason the bike wouldnt leave half as hard as with the usual map. i cut a best of 1.66 60 ft compared to my uaual low 1.5. so i finally started with a blank map and put in some numbers and compared it with my "fast map" and got it close and finally it sent. i got up to the line and not thinking about how i had been leaving that day, left at around 7-8k and the bike shot straight up. i usually ride it out way past the 60ft but it came up so fast that i completely let out........came down so hard i cracked my oil pan and oil went everywhere. so i am gonna have to order a new oil pan. isnt all that bad either $120.00 from kawi.........................that sux though

If you know a good welder you can cut the whole rear corner off and re-weld it flat to give a little more cleance.

havent thought about cutting it. i have thought about trying to put some sort of skid plate under it. not sure how it will work though. i usually dont come down that hard though. i was strapped down too, i know that didnt help any. at my last race, i noticed a busa and an r1 that had a full threaded stud through their front axle with about 15lbs of weights on front. but in my opinion, i think that would scare someone off if your wanting to put money on a race.

You can strapp a lead weight to your headers, and do a pretty good job of hiding them, been thinking of it my self. I cracked my pan the other day and just got it welded for $10, did a great job too!

The only downside with the threaded rod with weight through the front wheel is if it ever tank slaps it is going to be real severe. Something to think about. But yes it will allow you to launch harder and keep the front wheel down.
