TT 500 wet sumping

Recommended Posts

I have a 78 TT500 that runs great, new valve stem seals. But smokes at start up after sitting for more than a few days. And I mean SMOKES! After a few minutes it stops. I think oil must be filling crank case from tank. Oil level is at proper mark on dip stick but i must be missing something. could the oil pump be out of spec.Thanks

I also had a XT500 of this vintage. I had to let it warm up and ride slowly for about a mile or so a low RPM. Do not rev before giving it time to pump the oil back into the engine.
