Hello, I've been thinking about buying a newer gen SV650 (either the Gladius or 3rd gen SV650). I've researched on different forums and found nothing on the oil starvation problem in the newer gens. Has it been fixed? Do you still oil starve the front cylinder after wheelies? I know the topic has been overly discussed but I can't find anything about the new generations. Thank you.

I'm an old man with a gen 1 and have been hanging out about a year, so I'm far short of an expert. From what I'm able to gather though, there's no oil problem as long as you don't wheelie. These are really durable engines that are often good for for more than 100K miles. Abuse them and durability suffers - play stupid games and win stupid prizes. YMMV.
