Alright guys, I know it seems I post a new thread every 5 minutes, but it's my first Motocross bike and Im just really anal about having everything perfect, and theres nothing wrong with asking questions, I will never learn if I don't ask right? Anyways, I was cleaning my bike, changing the oil, oil filter, put new chain on, and just inspected my bike very well, making sure everything was tight, and stuff because I just rode it for the first time on a real MX track this past weekend, and Im about to go out agian. Well, I was draining the oil when I was just looking around at it, and noticed a large "chip" out of my kickstarter. It obivously was very sharp on the edges, and it was from where it hits the footpeg when you kick it. It don't seem bad, I was just wondering if this is normal, and fine. Also, I changed the oil, and I also went to my dealer, stocked up on all the oil filters he had in stock (11), and I bought a case of Yamalube for the thing...just to have the stuff for rest of the season. I was in the middle of putting the new oil filter in the bike when it sliped out of my hand, and into the drain pan...opps, next time I will learn to move the drain pan, or just be a little bit more careful. Now, only HALF of the filter got diped into it, the other half was clean, I decided to ask you guys if it's alright to use it, before I went and did, so I just put a different one in for now, but will it be OKAY for the next filter change? One last thing, I was putting oil into the bike, and I put a Quart in, then I put 3 "line marks" of another quart in, which said 28 (Im talking about the lines on right side of the oil bottle), and I went down to 20-21 on it. The manual says Total: 1.27 US Quarts with Filter change, so I figured it was right on. I warmed the bike up, checked the oil, it was over the dipstick line, so I shut her down, and did as the manual said...unscrew "check screw" until oil stops coming out, then screw it back in. Now, is this "check screw" JUST DRAINING EXCESS OIL??? Because it seemed like A LOT of oil was coming out, it was draining for a good 5 minutes, although it wasn't fast pouring out, it was still coming out. So I warmed bike up agian, checked it, and it seemed right on the dipstick this time, so I did it right? When it says 1.27, what exactly is that as far as lines go on the bottles, so I can prevent overfilling it next time? So should I pull that "check screw" each time I fill the oil, just to make sure I didn't overfill it??? One last question about the check screw, how does the oil flow into that part of the motor, where when you drain the screw, it's not draining the rest of your oil out of your motor, just the overfill? Im just wondering how the inside of it works is all. Oh, and about the chain slider silicone thing I did before, meh, I decided to peel the silicone off and just leave it stock, how it was. If I see more wear, I have the TM Works chain slider on Backorder right now, so I will have it ready to go! Also, I added a chain to the bike, and I skiped out on the Rad guards for now, I just wanted to add the major things it needs like chain...really, thats all it needs. I got it jetted good, and I love this bike. Some pictures for your enjoyment are in "My Garage." Once agian, I REALLY appericate all the help you guys give me, and if Im annoying, please just tell me and I will try to post less. Like I said, I ask a lot of questions, because I like to NOT find out the hard way with this kinda stuff. -MIKE!
