    HELP! Oil drain plug fell out on highway!

    Under a $1000! You just made my day. I was thinking more in the line of double or triple that. The dealership still owes me $500 bucks from the deposit I put down on the new R7. I waited two months and it didn’t show. I got impatient and went to the dealership to inquire about it. Was told they...

    HELP! Oil drain plug fell out on highway!

    I’m 43 years old and in my lifetime I’ve seen all kinds of strange things happen. Personally I suspect foul play but have no way to know for sure. However that’s not what this is about. I’m asking for advice from anyone who has dealt with such an issue. I already expect there to be some internal...

    HELP! Oil drain plug fell out on highway!

    Here’s one showing the mileage of my bike. If someone wants to key me in on how to upload a video, I’d be more then happy to do so. As I said, I don’t lie. I have no reason to lie.

    HELP! Oil drain plug fell out on highway!

    Thanks for the advice. That was basically what I was thinking as well. While I know I wasn’t bone dry when I managed to pull over as she continued to drain for a minute or two, she definitely didn’t have all she needed in terms of lubrication. I more or less figured I was screwed, but I was...

    HELP! Oil drain plug fell out on highway!

    Happened yesterday. I was cruising right along without a care in the world when suddenly I lost power and heard a loud "pop". Luckily I was just passing an off ramp so I swerved onto the ramp and basically coasted to a stop a couple hundred yards away. Bike was smoking pretty good from what I...
