Help Sand in Motor!!!!!! 06YZ450
Posted September 20, 2008 - 10:29 PM
I got the bike home, pulled the oil filter and it was full of sand from last weekend spent at the sand dunes. (Came in through vent tube)
I now have two problems.
1. Where did the clicking noise come form.
2. What to do about the sand.
I have since pulled the valve cover off and the the cams aren't scuffed as far as I can tell. Is there anyway to clean the sand out of the motor? Can I just change the oil and run the motor a little bit and then drain the oil and repeat?
It also feels like the clutch is really dragging when I pull in the clutch lever. Could the sand in the oil be causing this? This bike has been great up to this point. What do you guys think I should do?
