I may a problem with the W/NG at the moment, and am after some advice. When I took the bike out for a short test ride before purchase I removed the oil cap and noticed that very little oil if any was returning, just air and the odd splutter of oil. The bike ran fine and the engine was, and still is very quiet.
However now I have the bike home I have been checking and fettling a few things and since then, whenever I have started the motor I have seen no return. The oil tank was overfilled so I removed sufficient oil to drop the level to about one inch below the return opening at the top of the tank.
Should I take the bike for a run and then check the return or should I investigate first?
If the latter what is the sequence of checks you would recommend I carry out?
