I had back to back failures. (Note: I had no choice to purchase the second one as I was in the middle of nowhere and it was the only one available to get me back on the road.)
Bike was dropped on the first indecent, the second the bike was run dry of oil.
Anyone run across this site: http://www.oilfilterfailure.com
Not a happy camper over here.
Did you/are you going after K&N to make good on their warranty? We've had a case of a Bonneville seized due to weld failure...they coughed up and paid for replacement engine, so they do honour it.
You'd think they'd make serious changes to the design/build quality on these as soon as they started hearing of failures....it's gonna kill their rep for future products and could land them with a legal issue should there be a serious injury/death.
