Yep that was my oil pan, I was very aware of burning up my engine stopped several times to check everything. On all the downhills I turned off my engine and coasted, walked all the longer climbs (only 2) to choose my line and not get hung up on a rock. Also this model has a rotax engine which I think are tough. I really like the bike and I think it was just bad luck. I do have a Ricochet skid plate that's 4 mm thick so it's not like I wasn't protected.
