Just some details:
The bike currently rarely gets ridden. (Every weekend, to every other weekend) and when I do ride it it's usually only for 30 minutes or less. (This is about to change as it will be street legal soon.) it has not been overheated since I've owned it, and although my radiator has a small dent, the coolant level has not dropped at all. It does not leak any coolant from the peephole, so I think that would rule out my water pump seals right?
I have only taken it on 1, 3 hr trail ride since it's last oil change.
I have pressure washed it a few times, and none of those times did I pull the little hose thingy from the bottom of the airbox.
Other than that, the bike runs fine with full power, even when the motor is fully warm, and it will pull 3rd and 4th gear wheelies no problem. Idles fine, never cuts out.
With all of that said, and thinking back, I think I may have gotten some water into my airbox while cleaning the bike, and sucked it into the engine. And my thinking is that I can just pull the little hose thingy from the bottom of the airbox, and make sure it's all clean. Then change the oil 2 or 3, or 4 times, and hope I get the oil to drain clean.
Anyone got any other ideas as to what may have caused this, or if I'm thinking correctly about it all. I'm hoping it's not a cracked head, or head gasket, and I assume if it were, there would be other symptoms, one of which would surely be power loss right??
I'm trying to avoid tearing the motor apart if I can. Trying to eliminate all of the other possible culprits first.
