I once used to much chain lube and it was all over the side of the tire (suzuki bandit 1200s) and it was an early dewey sat. morning going into work for some OT, usualy would start the bike and warm up untill it would idle at about half or third choke (enrichener), went about 100 feet to a stop sign, kinda rolled thru (no traffic in my appartment complex at 530 am) released the clutch at maybe 5 mph and a little throttle and there she went out from under me. bike had the factory case cover guards saved the engine. broke about 2 inches of clutch lever and left mirror, amazingly very little rash to the plastics. my whole left side (ribs, shoulder, elbow, hip, everything) was hurt. bike slid about 50 feet and hit a curb. helmet had a good rash on it from the pavement. I was able to hobble over to the bike stand it up and crank on it foor about 20 seconds or so and it started up. got to work hurting like hell and my new nickname was fallzaw (only at work) dads nickname is sawzall like the tool. Need one to cut his hair. I was young. probly used a half a can might have been bel ray brand or something. like dude said early in thread, make sure your tire is clean too!
