    Two bikes. We got Sin's bike to the service station at corner Brookton highway and canning road (Gull servo).

    The other is at Canning Dam turtle brook picnic area.

    Both need a tow.

    Oil filler cap decided that I was riding like too much of a maniac and too much awesomeness... So he jumped for safety without informing me or the bike.

    Several minutes later I'm feeling something warm and wet up my leg... At first I thought it was me... Then realised I had already just tak now a toilet break.
    Look down, oil all over me, the bike, smoke pissing off the exhaust.

    Rear tyre was soaked in oil on the right side which was scary enough considering we were in the twisties.

    Hopefully an easy fix, sight glass on the crank case shows half full. Have acquired a new plug, oil and some degreaser to take the shit off the rear tyre and exhaust at least.

    Sin can explain her stunt riding adventures. ☺

    Degreaser alone won't remove all of the oil from the rear tyre.

    Ideally, a new tyre is the way to go, but the existing one has/had a lot of life left in it then you'll need more then degreaser (ie oil soaks into the rubber).

    When I had an oil pressure sensor leak on an SXV a few years ago I put the bike on a paddock stand, ran the engine in 1st gear and held a sanding disc over the tyre. Worked well.

    Also a useful thing to do with brand new tyres as well. As well as tyres that have not been used for a while.

    Ye be zealouts. Hw about just ride the thing knowing you may unpredictably slip a little for a while. Tyre will sort itself out with a bit of riding.

    This afternoon I jump on the DRZ400sm sitting on a trickle charger since I last rode it in Darwin in feb. wouldnt run without choke. Didnt matter how hot. Idle was a no go at all and accident mono on restart at lights. About 1/4 tank fuel. Filled tank in palmy and WOT to Darwin CBD. Thing settled down.

    I be promoting the 'she'll be roit moite' school of moto maintenance. YMMV.

    I'm really not sure if you're being serious or trolling. Brand new tyres really aren't that hard to scrub in, just take it easy for a while and gradually increase the intensity of you're riding. Much the same way you take it easy for a bit on cold tyres or in the wet.
