We had a TL1000R in the shop I worked in many years ago that had lunched a big end - apparently the guy used to do really long wheelies down the old road to the airport and eventually starved the big end of oil. Not sure if the HD motors would suffer the same fate being dry sump, but it's food for thought.This brings me back to root cause analysis. WHY did it lunch the bearing. I may be looking at oil pump failure (I know from research there is an updated drive gear floating around that should be retrofitted whenever the pump is dropped). Over on badweatherbikers, i saw some references of possibly beating the rod bearing to death through excessively lugging in fifth gear and/or from detonation. Then there is the fact that the scavenge side of the pump had to pump some of the garbage back to the tank. Smells like a moneypit!
