    ok before you go jacking up the oil pressure in your schiet
    the 250 60 and 15f has a higher flow oil pump than the zx12
    it has a zx10 pump in it

    the ski makes good oil pressure i have watched it both on the dyno and logged it on my big boat with the motec

    you dont need more oil pressure in your skis all you will do is cook oil and stuff bearings

    angry 15f guys do your self a favour and fit some oil squirters to your engines
    that would be one of my tips

    the casting area is all ready in the cases team kawi has been doing for years
    the 15f was always designed to have squirters but never fitted with them

    best thing for you to do is get a trashed set of 260 cases and copy them

    its just some m4 or m5 stainless grub screws with 1.6ish mm holes in them and some cross drillings from the mains

    so just mark and drill and tap the cases and drill a small hole in the grub screw?

    that is it dude
    when you look at the cases and the bearings its pretty clear where to put them all
    i thought i was pretty trick doing this back in the day
    and then the bloody 250 came out standard with them
