My guess is that this could happen anytime it lands real hard on the cat or it becomes submerged in water while hot. These are lessons I learned while piloting my submarine, um I mean Jeep Wrangler.
Good to know. I just passed up 30,000 miles on mine. How often do you do the valve adjustments? I've heard a lot of mixed reviews on how often you should check them. Everything from you don't to you need to check them every several thousand miles. My plan has been to check it every 15,000 miles. At 15k I took it to ride now and they said that the valve's were in spec. I've been debating whether I should have someone check them for me or do them myself.
