F4i BOOM!!!!

bought a 01 F4i a week ago(18k miles) and since then, ive been doing fiberglass and paint..

today looked like a good day to ride so i took it out to 149 which i live off of.

i rode for 1 hr and returnd home, i went inside and came back out 30 min later to find a puddle of oil under my bike...

i took all the plastics off and i cannot seem to find a hole or crack or anything.

does anyone know what could of happend? and if not does anyone know a good mechanic around town that wont charge me a a$$load to fix?

Thanks
skeeter

me and my dad just spent the last hr trying to figure it out.

conclusion...

my headlights have to be plugd in in order to start....corrected lol, its started right up!

second problem, the leak. let the bike idle for 5 min found a drip coming from the bolt that covers the starter.....(1/2 crack)

dad said to put a flat poly washer there and it should fix the prob or to just get a welder and do it, its only 1/2 in long if that..

so sorry for making this out to be a big deal, i thought i had blown the thing up.

Thanks for all the support guys, hope to start making some of the events
