Tips for first start after rebuild
Posted April 04, 2008 - 03:09 AM
Throughout the assembly i coated most parts with engine oil or lubricant re the manual, but my concern now is the fact that it's been sitting with no engine oil apart from the coating I gave some of the parts for a week.
I've put oil in the reservoir as per normal, but am worried that the majority of the motor will be running dry until that oil gets around.
Would kicking the bike over very slowly with the kill switch on pump oil through the motor? Any tips re the safest way to do this? I don't want to undo all the work i've done.

Going through any kind of break-in is a waste of time in MNSHO.
I don't break in anything anymore. I do change the oil and filter after the first ride.
