I just want to thank the thumpertalk community because without this forum I probably would have damaged my engine today. I remember reading a while back that you really have to double check to make sure you have good oil flow when you do a motor job or even just changing the oil filter. Because of this tip, I always crack open the oil pipe going to the valve cover to make sure I have oil coming out when just turning over the engine with the starter. It had always seemed like a tedious thing to do because prior to today because I had always had oil flow. Well today I just finished installing the 2nd and 5th gear mods on my bike and as always I cracked the oil line and it turned over for a minute and there was no oil flow. I came to this forum and was looking for a solution and immediately found that by putting compressed air into the hose that connects to the valve cover will aid in priming my oil pump. Within seconds I primed my pump. I just want to say a big thank you to those that came here to share their unfortunate experiences because it helps the rest of us.
