Just a 'bump', for easier access.

Maybe this Thread should be 'Stickied', Tom?

I see that I made some promises in this thread that I didn't keep. When I get a bit of time I may see about stacking up a transmission and upper balancer shaft.

The oil filter cavity pictures are yet to come and the original ideas ahve been overcome by events.

I invite any suggestions for investigation into Joe's Crankcase.

Dave is waiting for gear and a few other bits on B/O from Japan so could do more photos of the guts of the 2013.

I'll suggest that you add, 'what ever tickles your pickle', Normk!
More info, the better!

Tom and Normk,
I think I have an idea, way past due!
Bike on tires, level on rear rack or gas cap.
System, Well Drained, over-night maybe?

Oil Window at 1.25 L/QT ONLY, mark liters on LH / quarts on RH.
Oil Window at 1.5 / at 1.75 / at 2.0 / at 2.25.

With the filter cavity mod, I think it will contain 4 of the approximately 8 ounces.
At the bottom edge of the center pipe!
