If that's you on your SV in your avatar.....well.... do a search of oil starvation in the front cylinder and you may find your answer.

Like one of your past threads had suggested - You can stunt an sv but you shouldn't. If it's something new it's obviously not normal. I know you've had past threads about stunting your bike so you know the opinions. Good luck and I hope your SV makes it.

Maybe you should just overfill your overfill and then keep stunting. Your engine is dying.

We all don't know what we are talking about.

You know what you are doing.

Have at it.

BTW, if you do decide to part out the bike, you now have enough posts to sell the other parts in our marketplace forums.
