So it's just a standard "wet sump" oil pan, nothing special?

I only ask because I'm coming from a Yamaha Warrior, which has a semi-dry sump oiling system. Changing and checking the oil level is more complicated, just more steps to it and there's a very specific procedure. Guess I hope that Yamaha designed the system on the FZ so that the oil pickup stays submerged during the wheelies.... Otherwise we could have problems :eek: But this is Yamaha we're talking about, not Suzuki so I shouldn't be worried :p
