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.
