5. Flutter valve installed in cover—assists in retrieving oil from outside breather oil trap in cover.

6. Oil passage in right crankcase through which oil in outside breather oil trap is retrieved by crankcase vacuum.

If it is definitely determined that chain is getting an excessive amount of oil, remove one or more thin washers from under head of chain oiler adjusting screw. It is advisable to remove only one washer at a time and inspect chain again after motorcycle has been run approximately another hundred miles to determine whether or not further adjustment is needed.

Lubricating Rear Chain

Applying to rear chain not lubricated with rear chain oiler:

Under dry, hard surface road operation, apply engine oil at 750-mile intervals. Under dusty, wet or muddy conditions, oil chain daily with a very light oil.

Occasionally chain should have additional lubrication as follows:

Remove chain from motorcycle. Soak and wash thoroughly in a pan of kerosene. After removing chain from kerosene, hang it up for a time to allow kerosene to drain off.

Immerse for a short time in a pan of grease heated to consistence of light engine oil. If grease and facilities for heating are not at hand, substitute light engine oil. While immersed, move chain around to be sure that hot grease or oil works through all inside parts.

After removing from hot grease or oil, allow chain to drain and wipe all surplus grease or oil from surface of chain.

Install chain on motorcycle. Inspect connecting link and spring clip closely for bad condition. Replace if at all questionable. Be sure spring clip is properly and securely locked on pin ends.
