I have never even seen a dragon and this guy has killed a mother one and its 7 babies with his bike.

I am impressed.

How much oil is reaching the output and intermediate shaft bearings and getting between the gears and the shafts they are freely spinning on?

If you HAVE to drag your bike around like that, at least pull the chain/belt.
I'm not advocating for it. That's not me nor is it my bike. You stated it's horrible, I'm wondering why.

Every gear is turning 100% of the time and doing so while at least partially submerged in oil. There should be enough oil getting slung around to coat everything in there. I don't see how it's any different than what the tranny would see if the bike were being driven.

Again, not seeking an argument here - just looking for clarification.

I said it was worse on bikes with forced-oil transmissions, some of which have oil passages in the cases and shafts to feed the bearings and shaft surfaces because they wouldn't get enough oil otherwise. If you jack up the front of the bike that high, the intermediate shaft may very well be running dry, other than what's being transferred from the output shaft gears.
