Ah, yes that makes perfect sense.  I went through all my cables and  
found only a single one that drops down into the belly pan (beside  
the clutch).  Yeah, bone stock.  That's why I'm going back to Proddy  
form for 650P next year ;-)

Really?  My motor has always been gentle on oil.  I usually never  
need to add any, just replace it every 2 race days or 10 track days,  
whichever comes first.  This is a new development.  (which is  
probably why I didn't think to check it very often)
