Also--oil containg ester will evaporate less at higher temps, and you will not experience as much in the air box. I use Motul 5100 and 7100. Good stuff and i dont lose as much of it as with cheeper oils. :thumbsup:

And this Does happen. Water footpeg deep isn't that deep either. I had read about this issue here and I'm glad I listened. After letting my bike slip into a deep truck instead of going around it. I stalled it before getting out. Something told me to check my oil before going on. And I was glad I did. I had a engine full of gray goo.
