I suppose if you boink your crankcase on a rock and get a small crack that slowly weeps/seeps oil it might be nice to have an extra quart on hand. Other than that, use the space in the case for booze.

Well, I don't think that is the case, and nobody is forcing anyone. Keep the unit on and you won't have a problem, like the rest of us. Otherwise, improvise :D

Ha! 100+/- horsepower on a 600 lb +/- bike? Performance is relative.

Noise-power rules, but for $2800 you can buy a real used Japanese rocket and go faster. For a while.

Enjoy the new farkles.
