i showed a damaged output shaft bearing.

the gears, dogs, forks, journal bearings and journals all look great.

im sure the output shaft bearing has something to do with the 500+ 7K launches on that transmission.

wouldnt you agree?

Over 60,000 miles, many of them covered 1/4 mile at a time and the crank looks like that. Rotella rules!

Suzuki beefed up the output bearing on later models. If N2 had a '98 or later TLS, it would probably still be going strong.

Somebody knows how to shift properly (rpm's)

Any clutchless downshifts?

N2 has actually been using the rotella dino oil, 15w-40 weight (white jug). The dark blue jug pictured is 5w-40 synthetic. Both good oils, the 5w-40 makes my bike start much more easily in single didget temps so I use it. If I lived in socal I'd use the 15w-40.

Certainly speaks volumes IMHO. I've been running rotella synthetic in my titan truck.

The tranny and crank look great.
The big end bearings are looking a little tired, but after that kind of mileage it's not surprising.
How often do you change oil?
