I was shooting the shit with the local Marshal and he offered to run my license to see if I could transfer my license to my new hometown of Tombstone ( where there is no emissions testing or inspection) without loosing it due to unpaid tickets. He agreed that these kind of tickets were unconstitutional. He ran it and somehow it's clean as a whistle. So onto the DMV with me.
I have a few situations that have to be rectified before it's ready for a proper beating. I need a battery and the the battery box is broken and needs to be rebuilt. The Primo Rivera belt drive needs to be removed to weld on my new Lock Baker kickstand. I will also be replacing the transmission main shaft seal while I can get to it.
I also have an oiling problem. She goes through a quart of oil every 200 miles through the vent tube. I have narrowed the problem down to a bad oil pump (which is an S&S with the Evo upgrade that has a couple of hundred thousand miles on it) or it could be as simple as a clogged oil filter. I don't know yet. I have to have it running to find out.
Anyone else ran into this type of oiling problem? Any ideas would be appreciated. When the bike is not running the crankcase is full of oil to to the timing window. It's not the check ball. Ideas? "GTP"
