5th gear on pavement for 15+ miles, and....

Recommended Posts

...nothing happened. No, not wide open, but humming a bit.

That’s exactly what’s supposed to happen, nothing. Did you expect it to blow up?

I expected huge shards of trans-shrapnel exploding from the cases, pieces glowing and smoking and flying out in all directions.

I just fill my trans to the top, whatever it doesnt need blows out the vent tube all over the frame and motor, it keeps it looking new and shiny!

A friend of mine has an R and does no real flat land riding always in the dirt on rough terrain. I explained to him about the full quart in the tranny he scoffed at the idea. Two weeks ago his bike locked up in 5th WFO he wadded up and had to catch a ride from air mercy5. 16 hours unconcious in the hospital.

A FULL PINT OF WHAT, IN THE WHAT NOW? NO ONE TOLD ME....

No, Krannie was running 300cc's of some super duper "NASCAR" :applause: esoteric oil .

Plus, he's had his bike quite a long time and had never heard of this extra transmission oil business. :applause:

Just kidding, but we've sure had our share of "victims".

I'm sure he didn't have a team of litigators standing by for a class action lawsuit,either.

Nice post Krannie. Doug
