Just occurred to me after I read dougyt’s blog about doing an oil change.
Dont forget theres a wire mesh filter in the sump, I took out the crank on my z400 due to oil starvation, as its not mentioned in the manual, when I was a yoof.
Especially worth a look if you’ve just rebuilt your engine with silicone sealant as any bits and bobs that get squeezed out rattle round in the sump go squishy and then flatten out on the gauze when they get hoovered up.
Pain in the arse to check but is cheaper and easier than fitting a fresh engine.
