Rarely do filters fail, its usually a instalation problem, not oiled, not tightened properely, too tight/loose, or double o-ringed, Of course its easy to blame it on a faulty oil filter, and whos to ever know, of course this is just my opinion, for what its worth, doesent change anything

When my engine popped it had a KN filter on it. Im kind of superstitious and not going to put another one on. It blew oil out from the gasket as well. Makes me wonder if the oil flows through the filter like it should.

RideSmart did a good job of cleaning up and marking the area with cones, so we could finish the day. Big thanks to TWS (Texas World Speedway) for giving us an extra hour to make up for the lost time. Had a great time out there.

ArmyApe, sorry to hear about your wrist.

KN filters, both oil and air, are all I've run for the last several years in my all my bikes. Never a problem, at all.

Dudes in here making up about KN filters.

Oh.. And I don't work for Ride Smart but just because someone has Ridesmart in their signature doesn't mean they are speaking for the school. I'm sure that Ride Smart is very sorry that folks crashed and were injured at their event.

Didn't y'all get an extra hour of track time because of the incident? I heard track was hot until 6.

Ya i haven't seen multiple blow or been soaked in oil because of one. I made it all up guys, sorry. Sucks people crashed but its also ridiculous to blame the rider. it was an accident. Once again. happens.

Well, I felt my arm snap (I was conscious throughout the wreck), landed on my back, had the wind knocked out of me and then told it was my fault for "not following my line." After all that, whilst they were applying the neck brace, I asked how my bike was and no one answered so I asked again and someone said not to worry and that it had been picked up already.

I know, I know, I've said it all before, but for a representative to say that to someone who hit a patch of oil on their first Track Day is not a good way to invite return business. That said, I will be back, I'll finish up a Track Day and I'd like to give RideSmart another chance based on the fact that all my experience with them and their employees prior to that dumbass comment was nothing but exemplary

Sounds just like some really bad luck. If somebody really said that to you then that's pretty ignorant, especially if you're hurt.

Hope you heal up soon.

Not making up the fact it was the brand of filter on my bike when it popped. Didnt say it was 100% cause of engine failure. Just a little superstitious about putting one back on, and will use what i had been from here on out. It was probably not related but i dont want to find out if it was.

just to make clear, TWS (Texas World Speedway) does not give an hour to anyone....it is usually Dave that pays them for an extra hour to allow riders to be on the track longer.
I guess just stating the obvious.

I know crashes suck. However, I am more than sure Ride Smart did not wish anyone to crash and I am sure they tried to do their best to alert others of where the spots were. With that said, accidents do happen and in a sport such as this, they tend to happen a little more than in other sports.
I hope whoever may have been injured at TWS (Texas World Speedway) a very speedy recovery.

The only reason the seal would blow out of a filter is because of a gap. A gap could be because the filter was not tightened enough or the seal itself is to thick. Some of the after market filter have overly thick seals for the grove the seal seats in. On these filters you have make sure to really tighten the filter to compress the seal fully so there is not a gap between the filter body and the sealing surface on the engine. All you have to do is use the scanning devises in your head to detect if there is a gap or not.

As for my bike, it started right up, but the forks are bent and there's an ugly amount of fairing damage. She'll be at House of Paint tomorrow.
