Ive been reading about the wet sump issues of these bikes, I dont personally have a problem with mine but ,In the service bulletin it mentions the ball in the scavenge side of the oil pump being held off its base,wouldnt that starve the rocker oilers? just curious.

yup but by the time your bike wetsumped to the point of concern you'd be on the side of the road because of the smoke and oil coming out of every orifice :)

wet sump: my number one fix for this is take off oil pump,unscrew bolt tops, and take a punch and give the ball a good smack down to seat into pump, should never give you a problem again


like woody said if bike wets when riding you will see the most smoke you have ever seen come out the exh pipes
