    Take off the oil filter and remove the orifice plug then plug off the side by the filter and the pan and call it a day. More then fine on the street.

    I ran an rc's bypass for a long time on the street with no issues. Maybe change your oil sooner if you dont already change it right after a track day.

    I hope you dont mind me asking but what is the benefits to doing this for just riding on the street in and out of traffic and buzzing down the highway? Thanks

    Got a bike I'm working on for someone after they went down and the oil cooler got damage and he wants to run a sidewinder anyways so I figured I'd get all the info I could before finishing up the job and then have to go back and redo it
