    Bleeding oil line???

    I just replaced the oil lines on my 650 and was wondering if it would be benefical to fill a squeeze bottle of 2 cycle and push the oil thru the line or just let it flow from the tank.If I use the bottle idea do I still need to open the bleeder(not easy toget to)??

    Squeeze bottle should work. I keep a squeeze bottle of oil around for things like this and for engine assembly

    I use a plastic syringe from baby medicine. The tip fits right into the hose perfectly.

    make sure you premix your first tank of fuel to avoid any oil pump problems

    Yeah, you can push oil into the lines but it's really not necessary. The bleeder screw isn't that bad if you use a mirror to guide yourself.

    Use the bleeder screw to get oil down to the pump. Run a few gallons of premix through the engine. After that your lines will be all full and ready to roll.

    I also just rebuilt the carbs so won't running premix be tough to adjust the carbs?

    Nope, not at all. Just put the HS and LS needles at factory settings. To be safe, you can turn them out an extra 1/8 so you're well on the rich side. Once you get oil flowing through the lines top off the tank with 89 or higher octane and run it.

    BTW....you did upgrade the fuel pump to a triple outlet didn't you? If not, do this while you have everything torn down.
