Another transmission thread - but different symptoms than most
Well, I'll be god damned!!! Just got back from a test ride, and guess what? The summa bitch runs perfectly. Truth be told, I didn't really get on it too much, since it was the maiden voyage, plus its dark out. But I ran through all 6 gears, and no slipping, it didn't catch on fire, nor did it spontaneously combust. So it's early going, but I'm calling this a win.
Scary moment of the evening: I refilled the crankcase and went ahead and changed the filter of course, and when I fired it up, the oil level in the sight glass didn't move!!! I had a sick feeling in my stomach, and I started running everything back through my head about what I possibly could've screwed up. Turns out, I just had to burp the oil system and everything was fine. But good lord, I did not like that one bit.
Once my stomach settled, I went for about a 5 mile ride, and now it's back in the garage. I'll check for oil leaks in the morning. The next time I go out riding, I'll take this bike instead of the Daytona and really put it through it's paces before I'll 100% confirm I'm in the clear.
Time to crack a beer.
