how long did the bike set up before you disconnected the lines? If it sit up awhile the oil would of run back into the engine leaving the lines empty. Why are you rebuilding it, is it due to swamping or just worn out?
i put alot of miles on her , she has 5,478 miles on her. i have low coprestion so i'm go to change the rings and probaly the valves.
the bike sat for about 2 hours before i started to to it apart . the motor was warm when i did it
U may want to inspect the oil pump while you have it down.
anyone know of a good place or web-site to purchase a oil pump? with out getting ripped of in price?
oil pump $79 + shipping
oil cooler $87 + shipping
