    Did it say anything about investing in rod bearings?

    You know what's funny before I heard that you were suppose to remove that in 2000 I ran a full season at maxton doing top speed runs at 235 mph, took the engine apart and bearings were fine. So I'm saying if you accidentally ran it with it in doesn't mean you automatically ruin your bearings. Had a guy put a oil pan on to without the crossover on a 1000 and samme thing bearings were ok ..but I still suggest you do it though. Just saying

    I used to run them for years without removing them.

    You guys were lucky then as that small hole cannot supply enough oil for good motor supply , i bore another hole directly to the gallery rather than have the oil to filter partially choked by the raised area around the thread ,
    And on the 1000's seen or heard about a lot of hurt motors because of ignorance about the restrictors
    i actually think the sellers of the blockoffs should include instructions for restrictor removal

    look at the 4th pic above there is a hole top right of center of where the oil filter goes. that's where the restrictor is located use an allen key to remove.
