Changed oil today...first oil change,less than 100 miles.Used yamalube 10w40....cleaned oil screen,filter etc.Everything was placed back properly...filter,four slots,four holes,placed towards engine.Started bike and loosened the "check bolt"(didn't know this bike had one until checking these threads!)and no oil came out....did this 3 times same result. Checked the oil filter again...proper placement.Any suggestions?.

Loosen the check bolt all the way. My bike would do the same. A few turns and no oil, turn it enough where it's about to fall out and then I got oil.
I guess you could rev it up and hold it there to build up more pressure...if you're a gambler
Filled the case with 1.3 qt.and yes I did see oil in the window....bike was vertical not running.Another question,when the bike is running and if you are holding it vertical,should you see oil in the window?.Yes,I backed the check screw several turns on all 3 occasions....tomorrow I'll try taking it out all of the way I guess.
Sounds like my bike is normal,I'll take out the screw tomorrow and see what happens....there probably isn't much pressure at idle on 200cc bikes??.
why do you have to back that bolt out? im not sure what purpose it serves.
