Hello board

Well first off I would like to say that this is great forum. I'm back on a bike again after about 13 years. Just bought a new 06 yz450f and it is great. My problem is that I just cleaned my air filter re-oiled it and put it back together but it want start.I made sure to squeeze all the excess oil out. The bike ran great before that.

It must set up first - give it a hr or 2. Use oil that becomes tacky quick - alcohol evaporates making it tackier... :ride:

I doubt that the oil filter has anything to do with it. It only takes 10 -15 minutes for Air Filter Oil to get tacky.
