Best of all, I don't have to go through some ridiculous checking-oil-routine the next time I want to ride the motorcycle.

Lack of oil is the easiest way to toast the otherwise very reliable DR350. Check it every time :>

Hello,

Got head back, the bikes, from machine shop with time sert in and ready to go. Snapped plug off at head. Not cross threaded as they said I tightened to tight and did not use anti seize. Broke it off, taking it out! Oh well, never used anti seize before but will now.
