    How much oil & where do I add it when reassembling a GP 1200R engine?

    Probably a stupid question but I figure lubing everything to be obvious. Are there any extra (qty?) amounts of 2 stroke oil I should dump in the crankcase area or pv areas? What about "waterproof" greasing in specific areas?

    Just trying to be thorough.

    Thanks Y'all!

    crankcase has holes next to the bearings in the cases... use a cooking injection needle and shoot some 2 stroke oil in there... also shoot some oil on the rods in the cutouts for the big end bearings... dip the rod bearings in 2 stroke oil before assembly, and dip your fingers in 2 stroke oil and coat the cyl walls before dropping the cylinders on
