Oil measure

Hi, I have just gotten back on a MC, as the last time I was on one was back in 1978!  I have just bought a Kawasaki GPZ500S.  Its a 2002 reg.  I have no idea on the workings of it yet as I only bought it last Friday.  And my first drive on it was to drive it back home and that was a 30 mile journey.  I thought I should have been wearing bicycle clips to hold my waste !  I managed it and eventually enjoyed the ride.  My wife came with me and whilst ...

Fuel issue-misfire and stall

Water contaminated engine

I'm stripping an engine I bought as a spare. It came from a fire damaged bike and some of the water used to put it out has got into the engine.It's a G650X series BMW lump.I've stripped the oil pumps and found emulsified oil in both, just a little so I don't think it was running for long after the water got in.I'm waiting for my flywheel puller to arrive so I can split the cases, but in the meantime I'm after some advice.The mains are plain shell so I'm not worried about corrosion on them. The pressurised oil travels ...
