I heard a rumor about the Daytona that maybe some of you can confirm or deny:

Is it true that the location of the oil pickup is not conducive to wheelies? The rumor I heard is that oil will travel out of reach of the pickup and starve the engine of oil.

Thoughts? :???:

fivehundo, Looking at the schematic for the triple's oiling system it seems okay for wheelies like cheapbastard's, but I wouldn't suggest running it at 12 o'clock for very long.

Thanks!

I'd heard people say that but I've never pulled the pan or seen the diagrams. I'd always wondered if it was an urban legend or not.
