i went for a ride this afternoon, running wot, shifted from 2nd to 3rd, whacked the throttle back open, it popped out of gear, pegged the tach and then blew the hell apart. case is ventilated. i went down on the slick of oil but by then i was off the road in sand so i wasnt hurt at all. broken clip on and clutch lever is all the damage there is (other than the motor)pics to follow when i get my digital back

glad you are ok.
