I just shared your email with Dave Daniels and he recommended Gunk oil
If the engine is still running good, and just the oil light is coming on, I
wouldn't rush to conclusions. May just be the oil pressure sensor or
something simple. Is it blowing smoke when you run it? Maybe just a couple
of oil changes might get you back in business.
Well I did about the stupidest f'n thing you can do yesterday. remember my
post about how happy I was that everything went so well on the valve
adjustment? Well yeah it went wonderful, except that I'm kicking myself in
the ass right now for NOT removing the shop towels that were shoved in the
cam chain hole... So what motors fit these bikes? It was running so nicely
too. Still is actually but the oil light is on. I dumped the oil , pulled
the valve cover again, cleaned out everything I could find, and still the
oil light is on. I don't want to dump 2 grand into this bike on a rebuild.
So I'm going to look for a used motor . I know we've said the heads have
to be retained on whatever motor we put in there. But what will work?
Zx11? ZRX1200? I'm an idiot...
