will be a good learning experience. do it and yourself a favor and get a copy of the factory workshop manual for the year engine, there are reprints/copies available.

it will help you with the important procedures & has pictures of all the special tools, many of which can be fabbed up themselves.

once you get the primary & clutch off it & the cases split, you most definitely need to get into the crank's sludge trap if you're already finding oil starvation. here's an article for starters :

and here's what can happen when one stops up :



Good luck, lots of helpful knowlegable folks here.

thanks. i bought my self a copy of the workshop manual when i got the bike. havnt used it yet. also, that is a very good article. that issue is somewhere in my bathroom right now. seeing the motor above definately makes me feel better about the condition mines in. thanks for the info, and ill probably be asking a lot of questions and doing a lot of searches in the very near future. a lot of fellas here have been very helpful already answering other peoples questions.
