I love OI, too.

Still worth an oil tank check, imho.

Is the computer that runs the OI a stand-alone item? I love OI and would happily retro fit it to my gassy if it can be done at a reasonable cost. Hopefully Roon can chime in with his knowledge!

Looks like tps > ecu > oil pump on the wiring diagram.

Leakage was from the oil tank petcock - the rubber o-ring was pinched when the unit was screwed into the tank by the looks.

Cleaned the tank, new oil line, a dab o Permatex & judicious cable ties and its ready to be re-installed at a later date if desired. I would just need to add a small RC-type filter for the end of the tank vent. You can get them from Ebay for $4.50.

Just going to fit the pre-oi manifold & ride for now.

Trying 13/48 with 112 link chain I had in the parts bin. Shorter wheel base should help me get even better at flipping

After a few rides, I found 13/50 on the 18 300 (revised, shorter primary gearing) too short. The bike was breaking traction a little - which it never usually does - & I was looking for 7th a lot, even at moderate speeds.

Also, the Motoz Arena Hybrid I have had since I bought the bike off Roon is STILL gripping well despite losing a few knobs & being half shagged. Very impressive tyre.

sourced the melt down to a faulty regulator. Replaced it with a used one from a friend and now it's charging fine, 13.6 V instead of 16.6V. New lithium battery in the mail. Have to mount a new front and rear, both Shinko, front FAtty, rear the 140 comp tire.
