Hello jabcb,

The VM series of Mikuni carbs have individual chokes levers (note: these are new carbs). I don't think the linked chokes on a std. set of carbs would fit.

Cheers Geoff

You can use a dual choke cable from most snowmobiles from 70’s to 2000s. Polaris Indy 400 for example.

So I was able to get the bearing race holder/cups done. A little time on the lathe making more chips than metal left at the end.....

Then fitting them in the frame. They sure look nice. Not sure they will be there in the final build but they work well here.

and then races pressed in the cups.

From here the stock front end can go back on. I still need to fabricate some steering stops.

Wow has time gotten away from me. Back on the build trying to get to a running bike so I can get the title work going.

Here is my question...Are there any tricks or suggestions for best way to prime the oil lines after a full engine rebuild? I am talking about the ones that go from the pump to the engine.

thanks!

Take the pump off and use a syringe, or, if the internals are well oiled, open the pump to maximum (as if you were at full throttle) and spin the engine with plugs out and no fuel in. (Might be easier in gear and turn the back wheel if the bike is on a bench.)
You'll be able to see the oil moving down the lines. When I did mine, for first start I used a header bottle with petrol and oil mix and used easy start to get it running first time. Much easier on the triples with the electric start!

Thanks! They are very blue/green right now so I am not sure if the mechanic that rebuilt the bottom end for me filled them before he assembled it or if they are stained. I thought about pulling them completely and using the syringe just so I can prove to my self each one is full and flowing.

Good choice on the plating. The pitting looks so uniform it kind of looks natural.....Part of the design. Chuck https://phenq-reviews.com/uk/


These are the things you can't explore :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Update: My little project is now titled!! It took 6 months to get it through the system but my Lyster Suzuki now has a MN title. They had to go with a state assigned VIN for the frame but it is now titled and has street plates so I can move forward with my build.

From here I can tear down pretty much everything on the bike and start over as that was just to get it through the process. The engine is fully rebuilt and I will keep the frame stock so now it is time to engineer and build everything else. I will warn you this won't be the fastest build on this site (work has a way of getting in the way) but I promise you it should be a fun and interesting build.

Well done, blue :up:

Keep the photos of the build coming, it's a cracking project.

Cheers

Geoff

I might be a bit late to this conversation, but I just primed the lines on my son's Titan last week...I used a trick from my youth when I would rebuild small block Chevy's. I would use an electric drill and a long flat bladed bit to reach down inside the motor to spin the pump and lubricate the internals prior to first start. Similar concept on the Titan. I removed the pump from the bike, plumbed the oil tank to the pump, and spun the pump's shaft using the electric drill (fitted with a short flat-blade bit) fit into the pump's driveshaft slot. Go easy and keep your hand steady and it works like a dream. Make sure you hold open the metering valve.

Got the pump primed plus filled the lines all the way up to the motor. I then took a squeeze bottle filled with 2-stroke oil and squirted it into each of the four oil ports at the base of the cylinders and then connected the lines to the engine.
