  4. bang & total loss of oil !!!!!!!

    Garage / Mechanical Help
    i would say do a full check including forks. the oil is on the right side, make sure no holes or leaks.. not too sure, but if its the left side it might have been the oil filter.. u might have to change that along with an oil change. good luck

    first maintenance is jsut a overall check.. oil change..chagne filter as well. and re-lubing of chains and such.. that's about all, and i beleive a coolant flush. Stock stuff is never good.

  18. 2008 Clutchless Shifts

    Track Tech & Riding Techniques
    clutchless downshifting is not reccomended but is doable, as for clutchless upshifting it is fine even for bikes without slipper clutch. The only thing i reccomend is DO NOT DO CLUTCHLESS SHIFTING INTO 2nd, but other than that i think its better for the bike cuz u dont ride the clutch as much...
