Big thanks to sportbikeryder for helping a fella out!
« on: March 06, 2012, 02:20:25 PM »
Fired up my bike for the first time since the rebuild last night and the oil pressure light was barely on and flickering.  I had just installed a new crank, Wossner rods, bearings, oil pump, high pressure valve, and the list goes on.  I spun a rod bearing last year, so instantly, I had visions of horrible demise to my new motor.  Sportbikeryder told me to check a few things and sure enough, it was a bad seal on the o-ring between the swivel pickup and block.  It was a new o-ring too!  So just because parts are new, doesn't mean it is good.  Started the bike and not even a flicker!  I'm going to put a guage to it just to make sure, but I'm confident all is well.

 :thumb:  Glad it worked out for you.  I'm good at helping others....if only I could apply my techniques to my own garbage, I might be running a little quicker...

Yup....he's a clever fella

Btw....never start new build without priming motor first. Would've been able to tell without starting and causing potential initial start up damage.

Not sure who made that, but it wasn't me. I've done a similar technique though. I've primed that way and also built them without priming them. While it certainly doesn;t hurt to prime them that way, I can;t say I have ever really had any issues by not doing it that way and just turning the motor over without the plugs in.
