Split personality, I fake being smart
That thing is so cute you want to hug it (until it got dirty) ;D
His is a 2 stroke so he bled the auto oiler lines to get air bubbles out which can starve it for oil and seize it. Your KLR being 4 stroke you just need to crank the engine over without spark plugs to circulate oil to the head prior to first start. once you see oil in the cam area of the head your good to go.The Jimbonaut said:Pardon the interruption - I read that you bled the oil lines before firing up the bike for the first time. I'm pretty close to firing up my KLR after an engine rebuild, but know bugger all about bleeding the oil lines - is it something I should know about?
Yep, I had premix in to start but for some reason (maybe the oil?) it leaked past the carb gaskets and contributed to the mess. She smokes like a chimney, pretty confident everything is working as intended thereHurco550 said:I generally like to run some pre mix through the first tank after a rebuild (snowmobiles too). Though in the case of these Suzuki bikes, it doesn't help the direct oiling to the crank bearings.
