    Groin pull question for Dr. Mark

    I could use a little more input. I guess the big question now, is do I run, bike etc. and "play through the pain" a bit? or should I work on resting it more?
  2. This seems like a dumb question, but.. I pulled what feels like the tendon along the inside of my thigh in a minor crash. It didn't seem like a big deal, but it's been about 2 months and I'm still feeling it. It only hurts at certain angles and when I try to go running. I'm kind of stuck on what to do to get better. My understanding is that there is very little to be done about this type of injury, but after nearly two months I'm wondering if I should get in to a doctor I'm 35 years old for what it's worth as that obviously affects one's ability to bounce back thanks for the help, I need it.

    I'm a little late on this, but Travis Pastrana not only finished Erzberg, but he was 11th. Not bad, really.

    You looking FAST

    not sure how fast, but I was having a lot of fun
  6. my thought was that if the oil tank is low, then the rest of the oil is in the engine. I am freaked out by the low dipstick reading, but oil is pumping and dipstick reading issues seem to be common on these bikes. that's why I'm here though, I'm trying to figure out how get comfortable with this bike without tearing the motor apart.
  7. I discovered the oil pressure check bolt, so I started up the bike and pulled the bolt. It is definitely pumping oil to the head. It is also moving oil into the oil tank just not filling it up high enough to hit the dip stick. At this point I know my motor is getting lubed so I'm thinking I just ride it and forget the dipstick. any opinions?
  8. I ran it for about half an hour on the advice of a yamaha dealer. It still doesn't show on the dipstick. I think it would've smoked the motor if the oil pump wasn't working, but I don't know. I do know I don't feel very comfortable running it with nothing on the dipstick.
  9. changed the oil on day 1 with the bike. I should have mentioned that. It was full, and is full now. t
  10. I have an 05 yz450 and it shows no oil on the dipstick. I have searched and searched with various findings. I pulled the clutch cover and stator cover and there were some rubber chunks in the oil, but the screen is still clean. I am unfamiliar with the oiling system on this bike. Am I going to burn up the motor or is oil still getting pumped up to the head and just not making it to the oil tanks which is significantly higher? What do I do about this? I really need help. thanks in advance.
