I'm not sure what Shane ordered, but I'm sure it was just what he needed and nothing bigger. Yeah, I just forked out the $ for Tyler's bike and he came in hear a few minutes ago and said "We need to order the parts for your bike"
I may wait a couple weeks to give my bank account a chance to recover...which may NEVER happen, that thing's on LIFE SUPPORT now!

ForeWoman450, I feel for you. I may have to fork out a lot of money
on mine. I may have cracked my crank case. I will find out Tuesday.
Word of advise: When changin' the oil, be sure not to over tighten' the
oil bolt. 18lbs of torque is what is called for. I just was to lazy to get up
& get my torque wrench everytime I changed my oil yesterday after I
sank mine in 3-4 ft. of water. Good luck.

RR, Did you see a crack? It seems more likely the steel drain plug would strip the aluminum case before you could get enough toque on it to crack it.

I hope it turns out to be a simple fix.

That is probably what I did was strip it. I usually go for the worst case
senario so I won't be let down when I find out the real problem. I am
expecting the worst. I will let ya'll know Tuesday when I take it in.
