Oil pan bolt came out..... Got it to RUN!!
so my ADD got the best of me this time. I forgot to tighten my oil pan bolt after an oil change today. Yup, after 15 minutes of riding my bike shuts off at 75 mph when all of my oil dumps onto the interstate.
After attempting to find a matching bolt, the best fit only got 1/4 inch into the pan. Tried adding oil, but the oil indicator lights continue to stay lit.
When it turns, it makes an awful squeak that I'm interpreting being the pistons with burnt seals.
So my bike was 180 degrees when it cut, could I have blown it? Oil was continuing to spill after I came to a stop...
Is there a bolt sensor? I don't alhave a replacement yet, is that why it wouldn't start again?
