I was on my way home and as I was pulling a way from a stop light and disaster struck. I went to take off and immediately felt the wheel loose grip and smoke bellowing out of the engine. I gained control of the bike and shut down the engine down. I pushed it off to the side of the road and inspected. Oil was everywhere: rear wheel, exhaust, engine, radiator and the road. I quickly realized it was dripping out of the nut on the end of the K&N oil filter. It was confirmed when we started the bike and oil shot out of all the spot welds on the nut at the end of the K&N filter. I cleaned everything and installed a new purolator and added some oil and the Brut was back on the road. I was minutes from entering the highway where I am sure it could have been a lot worse.
