I've heard mixed stories to be fair, I'm sure someone said that the S has stronger internals compared to the R. Might be wrong though

Yeah they're definitely strong engines! If he was a wheelie monster he'd have soon starved the front cylinder of oil and blown them that way though

Yeah but it still takes a lot of wheelies to do that and long wheelies too
