maybe '06's don't have that problem.... I have been beating the hell out of mine and even with the stroker kit in there I have had no issues . I use rotella 15-40 and purolator filters.

what kind of modification is it ? Do you need to split the cases to do it?

yes you have to split the engine cases to do it..the crankshaft gets modified for better oiling to the rod journals and the engine cases gets modified to be able to supply the oil where needed..

I must have one of the special ones too....06 with well over 2000 passes...Amsoil and OEM filters, hot lap after hot lap and no issues.

Did see one just recently spin #3, but he kept the bike up on a wheelie too long and loss oil to the pickup. His fault.

I keep saying I'm going to upgrade my 14 to a new one. Well that was 2 years ago. I just can't justify buying a new one when my 06 is still running as good it does.
