----------- It's always strange that people think they can out design the engineers....then again that's a funny thing to say to you, who just did.
I have thought about this statement, since the day that it was first posted.
I have NOT out designed the Kawasaki engineers, with any of my (to date) lubrication system modifications to my '87 KLR650 or even Clarks '90 KLR650. (Clarks bike being the First to receive the oil Filter Cavity mod. To the best of our knowledge.)
I have Only Implemented their newer knowledge from newer models into their predecessors old Original Design.
They (Kawasaki) could EASILY incorporate Every Single Alteration which I have pioneered/tested, into the Existing Assembly Line production process.
Including my (up-coming) Secondary, crankshaft oil Inlet Filter.
But, like Eagle Manufacturing's improved Doo-Hickey and Torsion Spring, or Watt-mans Thermo-Bob/ Thermo-Bob 2, the question is, WILL THEY? If so, WHEN?
Tom might wish to move this post/copy this post into "Oil Pressure, How much ya' got".
