Xb engine startup, with a dry engine ( empty case, it needs more oil than with normal oil change , after final oil level check it needed about 0,5 liters more than normal

Xb engine startup, she fires up with the first start.. nice, but with the new oil pomps it can take some time before all the air is out the pump and system

Xb engine startup, as you really do not want the oil pressure light on to long, with a little airpressure help in the oil tank it will get oil pressure faster so the rocker arms don't run to long with out oil

Xb engine startup, the bike is running very nice, so time to dress here up and take here out for a spin

Xb engine startup, test ride smile-emoticon i love my job

Xb engine startup, she is running perfect, shifts perfect, no leaking gaskets. but steering feels funny, as sometimes it feels like she is dropping into corners, need to check the front end

Xb engine startup, no special tools than a heavy hammer and a long drift to tap out the old bearings , , there are 2 notches in the frame on the bearing seats for the drift , using a heavy hammer helps

Xb engine startup, just me being qurieus.. to see how the old bearings look, not completly fubar but, very notchy running
