Oil pump issue??
I bought a KLR with a broken gearbox & cracked casings. Sourced all the parts required & am busy reassembling it at the moment.
I am having issues with the oil pump though. When I tighten the 3 mounting screws the pump will not turn freely. If I remove the oil pump gasket & tighten it up, it turns freely? have tried removing the 2 black damper rubbers on the engine casing (think that's what they're called?) & fitting the gasket again but it makes no difference?
I purchased all new gaskets for the bike & it even does it with the old one on??
Any ideas / suggestions? Anybody perhaps come across this before?
