Oh it will never happen again. I'm still a rookie concerning motorcycle repairs, but learning a bit each day and its hella fun. Got alot of work ahead of me though especially becouse I notice the bike that I bought has a lot of catching up to do concerning maintenance.
Lot of rubber tubing needs to be replaced. they have dreadlocks at the conecting sides. one even has a tearing at the connection point of the air switch valve.
Also oil is leaking now, I bought a gear case gasket cover have to wait for it gues that solves most of it theres a bit on the front too, altough i got a cover for the stator case and tightened the oil drain bolt and the oil check bolt.
Also the bike still wont start, Well it sometimes does when sucking on the tube thus vacuuming the petcock switch letting gas in the carburator. But this only lasts a bit and then the bike stops again having to do it again.
Can this be caused by something not being connected to the carburator? the only thing i disconnected while swapping the engine was the front side of the tube that connects into the front side of the cylinder head. But put that back the way it was after realising i didnt need to take it off.
The bike not starting is the only thing besides the oil leak that needs to be done before it can drive again.
Edit: I sucked on the petcock hose connected to the vacuum seal. It started and I checked fluids and went for a drive. But it wont speed as it use to. It feels as if im driving with half the power.
