Worth waking up early for. A proper informed piece by well informed people. What a pleasant change from the usual hack journalism.

Thanks Bill

I love when people start the bikes on rollers, then check the oil is returning, engine happily revving away.............I prefer to spin the engine over before start and know the oil is returning first, that is after a full pre-oil of the timing chest and the sump has at least a cup full of oil to return faster............This is better insurance for the cams and followers, the weakest part of our engines.

Hear hear. I cringed at that too. Lightning cams glowing red hot I'm a big fan of pumping an oil can full of oil down the push rods tubes after a lay up or after an oil/filter change after the guru gave me the tip. Thanks Greg. No shavings on my magnetic sump plug any more.

He may have done it before ?.
I must admit I, I don't have rollers and Just prime the feed, Kick and hope, At least he is checking the return,
Which made me think he knows Vin's.
I think if you have bad made Cams, Nothing will help, As Greg found with his Ex Racer.
Cheers Bill.

I gave him the benefit of doubt too Bill. Too easy to criticise everything.

The checking of the oil returning may have been just to add a little to the visual content of the video.
