    Hi, would this procedure apply to my 06′ 560 SMR? My manual instructs to
    lay the bike down on its side and fill the oil filter cavities half way
    with oil.

    Why so many diff sizes of heads on the bolts?
    He didn’t say, but the Allen head on the small screen underneath is 8mm

    After you rebuild your 2 stroke engine place the gaskets and seal do you
    actualy place an amount of oil in the engine previous to the Gas Air oil Mixture
    expoldes in the cranck case. If yes, what is the amount and what type? i
    saw your video on youtube,”very cool” i have a CR80R Honda

    You bet! You’re bike should be the same as what is shown in this video but
    be sure to follow along with your benefit manual just in case

    recommend? Thanks for making this video, it helped.

    @EvansAutoShop – Just a roll of shop towels. You can get them anywhere
    (auto store, walmart, etc.)

    @24000RPM when its hot it will fill up the sightglass but when its cold and
    on level ground it should be just a small bit below half way. you dont
    want to overfill these engines.

    roads about 1/4 throttle thought i should have mentioned that
