Hi All,

I have one quick question.
When i join my WR450 bottom end, I was installed the o-ring (with small amount of liquid gasket) between to cases, but forgot to put dowel pin. The oil pressure is low, and feed only oil thank in the frame.

Good idea as without the dowel pin there is no guarantee the o-ring will seal.

I know it's alot of work, but that is what needed to be done. You need that oil going where it's designed to go!!!

It is not so much work. It took me 4 hours to split and join all :-), but it was for good, i hope.
