A couple JR50 questions (school me on oil injection)

Recommended Posts

I've been fixing up an 87 JR50 over the last few days for my kids to ride.  It's running.. kinda sorta but not well.   


I put Klotz Super-Techniplate in the oil tank.  I didn't realize until after a few short rides that this oil is NOT intended for oil injection  :facepalm:



I pulled the tank and hose off and drained them.  Can I top it off with injection rated oil and call it good or should I somehow purge the Klotz out of the system?  If needed how would I purge the oil out?  When adding new oil to an empty system do I need to bleed it or does it self bleed?      




Also when I shift it into gear it slams in and grinds gears a bit.  I'm guessing the clutch isn't releasing completely while shifting?  Any ideas?  Thanks a bunch,
