Blew pcv valve on highway, lost oil, heaps of problems follow...

It all started when I was riding on the highway running about 135mph. My oil light came on, and looked behind me for my friends, and all I could see is a cloud of white smoke.

I pulled off to a gas station only about 2\10 of a mile down the road and filled up with cheap oil. it was smoking the way home because of no breather hose.

The next day I did a regular oil change, and there was nothing too alarming in the oil, or filter. But it continues to run like rubbish.
My top speed was 135 MAX and took awhile to get there. It bogged down while idling, backfired constantly just little burps, and generally sucked to ride. A friend suggested i may only be running on 3 cylinders.


I pulled the plugs




Bad plug would be on the left of bike.



edit: the battery is on its last leg, that might have something to do with it.



SOOO I replaced the plugs, and regained some power, but not all of it. I still have poor low end power, medium mid range, and after about 7000rpm it runs okay. while I was in there I cleaned the carbs, checked the seals everything was good.
maybe I did not seat the carbs correctly..

Yeah, Im no mechanic either but those 2 plugs have defiantly seen better days!!
I hope they can help! because when I took it to a mechanic for a diagnostic he wanted to start with the plugs, and would charge $150 for it. He said it might not even fix the problem D:

what seals? I read oil fouled plugs, and a clogged crankcase breather may go hand in hand.

Sell your bike please. Sounds like all you are going to do is throw a rod out the case "testing" it

Common guys... i'm not trying to show off you don't have to get smart.. I know what this bike is capable of, i'm just saying I was pushing alot of rpms when this happened. Maybe the stress caused a failure.
