Back together, took some tinkering to get the oil pumping but then started almost instantly. Let it warm up for a couple minutes & shut it down to cool. A short ride in a while & cool again. :thumbup:
Then :roost: :lol2: :nono: Ok I'll take it easy for a while.

Haven’t ridden hard but bike is running really well. Planning to break it in at GreenRidge Sunday.... nice easy ride if anybody wants to go.
I’ll probably trailer it out vs slab on new motor but I will say the new 5th gear feels good at 75 :angel:
