No I lost oil, dont know how but it ran dry. No sign of burning oil and no leaks. Anyway the exhsust cam seized first and the piston seized second. Exhsust cam cheese grated the cam race.
other than that the bottom end looks and feels good. Im going to split the case tomorrow to double check everything. It will give me the chance to replace some bearings and check for wear, bike has 12500 miles. Big cost is builfing a new head, I may do BB, if I dont at minimum ill increase compression and put some e model cams in. BB is only worth about 4 hp, but it can be cheaper than oem...
