Anyone gotta sparre.

They're about $65 plus shipping from parts whoever if you're in a hurry.

If you're done riding for the season and in no particular hurry I can get the one off my blown motor at my dyno guys and send it to you for shipping, $20ish. Prolly be a month or so tho. 

Up to you.

Moments. I'll explain right below....

Glad the back tire didn’t get a high speed oil wash and put you down! I had a buddy blow off an oil filter going 85mph and let’s just say it didn’t turn out to good for him. Count your blessings 🙏
 

The whole back end of the bike is soaked with oil, along with the back of my jacket and helmet! After the rock kicked up the back end slid out, but my first thought was busted tire or bent rim/deflated tire. Then the oil light came on and I knew what had happened. Hit the kill switch and coasted off the road. Left foot is sore from slamming it down to catch the bike in the skid, but I had on GOOD boots with solid ankle support., so not too bad. 

The busted pan sucks, but I'm mostly worried about the crushed oil filter. Who knows what filtered debris may have been released due to that :(

Thanks, man. I really appreciate that. 

Yeah, none currently on ebay, but Partzilla has them for about $68. So it's not horribly expensive.

I've thumped this pan on a couple nasty speedbumps. I'm considering rebuilding the sump from 1/8" aluminum plate and maybe taking it up an inch from ground clearance. Haven't had a chance to really devise a plan yet, but the pickup looks pretty high up in there and losing an inch of sump depth would only amount to ounces of oil capacity . Probably not even a  cup.

Tight curvy road, heavy fog at night. Never saw the rock until it was too late. Front tire kicked it up and the oil pan just shattered. Anyone gotta spare laying around? lol

A buddy brought me the rock for a souvenir lol. Quart can for size and can still see the aluminum embedded on the surface.

reason I asked is because if it ran much at all, you very well may have bearing problems....

check your bearings.....

I haven't had any trouble with the 8's but at least now I can try 9's so I know what's what.

Finally installed the spare gas.  Turned out well and sturdy.

Well, that's one pet rock that would get a daily kicked in the ass.

That sucks, sorry about your luck. Thinking about a skid plate now? I know I am.

Okay a few hints " src="https://twemoji.maxcdn.com/2/72x72/1f60b.png">

Aftermarket Connection Rods, aftermarket valves, clutch pack and new piston rings " src="https://twemoji.maxcdn.com/2/72x72/1f60d.png">... Motor has approx 18k miles on it... I wonder if my work will make me a set of pistons " src="https://twemoji.maxcdn.com/2/72x72/1f914.png">, I'm sure they can but I'm not counting on it... 

I may or may not sell my Hordpower Airbox and Yoshi exhaust combo... 

Ive been waiting on a good deal for a Yoshi/hord deal for a while. If you do plan on selling lmk!

Will do, your first on the list 😁 if I do sell... I should know more by end of the year/early January when I get 'round to doing my winter project... gotta do the suspension on the FJ-09 first before I can move it to make room for the FZ-07 project...

That will be a very different bike. I had an ancestor of that one- a TDM 900. Great bike.  Yours will be - solid as a rock.

Not tempted to wait for the tenere 700? By all accounts it sounds like a great bike with this excellent engine.

Finally got out for a ride yesterday!  Just a freeway commute, but it was nice to have the HOV lane at rush hour.

Didn't mean to  ignore you, just haven't been online much lately. 

I thought about a bashplate, but it was a pretty rare hit. I think our sumps are pretty typical for street bikes.

Officially said goodbye to my '17 FZ-07 after 28,690 miles since 1 November 2017. Traded her in for a 2019 Super Ténéré ES. I don't have the time right now but I have a few things to sell off the FZ-07 and I'll post them this weekend.

Cost me £60 at a local graphic and vinyl shop, they guy also gave me what was left on the roll of wrap, could probably wrap everything again another 2 times.

Wore out another S21. Haven't checked my log, but around 4k miles again. Found one of these high dollar puppies on clearance at the local shop, so brought it home and slapped it on the bike. If it doesn't make it to 10k miles I'm blaming you guys!

 

Actually figured it should be a decent winter tire since they LOVE to sling the pea gravel all over the place around this time of year. Hoping those large tread voids help deal with that.
