I saw something like that in a british mag but they used a 1998 zx6r they drained all the oil out of it and pinned the throttle and let it run full out for a couple minutes. once they stopped it they put oil in it and kept going like nothing was wrong.

When I was a kid I had to walk to school in the snow up a hill and when I would get out I had to walk home up the hill in the snow.
