But if you really need it, we can always maka da plan...

Mine isnt shot, but its an older model... one of the dodgy ones...

Keep us updated on the bike situation...?

naw go fo it man, mine is a 2005 so should be an issue. thinking about it last night while on pain killers I think the leak must have come from the procket area.

I noticed after the crash one bolt was missing from the sprooocket cover, which would explain why it sounded like a chain rattle sound when I was moving o.O
So much of win it hurts! ^.^

k so i have done allot of reading and my diaagnosis is that the countershaft sprocket nut loose is/was loose which made the noise and eventualy made the output shaft seal go ape shit and die which resulted int eh oil being tossed out.

Will wait for lecap but it seems to fit the bill, I guess the question is whats the damage like o.O

appreantly a know problem and the fix: http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=625998

I have done that fix already.

You just replace the counter shaft seal and also the spacer, if its worn...

Wouldnta expected it to blow out like that though.

Anyways, you lucky it happened where it did and not somewhere really dangerous.

The anodizing itself is actually quite cheap
