XB12XT no compresion, after finishing the top side, bumped the engine around with out sparkplugs to check, time to start there up

XB12XT no compresion, ,when the oil pump and case are drained,,, it can take a while before the tappets and rocker arms have oil pressure... a little help to put a little air pressure in the swingarm, so the oil gets everywhere quick and is buidling up pressure


XB12XT no compresion, she makes noise, smokes and gets hot ...sounds like it works

XB12XT no compresion, little check checking header pipe temp on bought cylinders to see if the combustion is relative equal


XB12XT no compresion, ok all good... cover on

XB12XT no compresion, and test ride smile-emoticon she is ready to go back to here owner

X1 get here done... she is runnig very nice after engine rebuild... still some dyno time , with forced cooling, let here get hot through and through... as running on idle the cylinders still will get to hot to soon, so the oil will not even heat up, and i need to check this for leaks before i give here back to the owner
