Dropped the skid pan and sump to clean out before an oil change.

I was surprised (but not a lot), to find the debris in the picture. It seems it was last done when Noah was an apprentice.

The sludge was almost solid, so anyone wanting to do an oil change, this is recommended.

Glad to hear that you dropped the sump, I did it on one MT only to find the gauze missing completely 😮

Even if your engine would have been undamaged had you left it, at least you know that it's clean now. If you check it in the future, you'll probably find it clean apart from fine particles which seem to find their way in

Today, I have mostly been.....
Fitting a Dellorto! Bugger is, I can’t go for test ride, I’ve had a minor op on the side of my head and can't wear a helmet. Next weekend but it started and I’ve adjusted the idle, it revs nice and easy. Only skinned one knuckle too!

Changed the fork oil and put some air in suspension, front and back. Feels better.
The oil that came out was red, reminded me of when I was a poor youth and used 2 stroke oil in my forks as it was cheeper.
