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