got an 01 I bought not running, rebuilt the carb and unplugged the parking brake switch fired up great, changed the oil filter, air filter and do the valves,.. all at once, and appearantly, maybe not but most likely finger tightend the oil drain plug, went to grab the ratchet and forgot what I was looking for and continued on to something else... well the day I get out of work in a snow storm(first ride running good) I hop on the betch and do some high speed drifting in the snow in a pack of 6 quads, mostly 400s with mods, bike shut off on me a few times in the last 2 hours of the 5 hours we were out, I of course started back up and hurried to catch up, the last time it shut off I heard it go, 3u2a9yna.jpg6ehy8ugy.jpg

oh yea but I came here to ask, I had just finished the top and bottom end rebuild tonight around 8-9 and don't live far from people at all so I was only able to crank it a few times but I wasn't able to get the oil to capacity, spec says 2.3 I believe but I got about 1.75 in the tank, how do i go about starting it first should I put some oil down the spark plug hole so it doesn't get dry or just go for it

I just went for it. You could even leave the plug wire off and dry start it a couple times to start the oil circulating..

I pull the plug hook up the battery charger and crank until oil comes out the bleeder screw. I usually dump a Qt or so of oil right into the motor through the valve cover though so it's already in the motor.
