    gp1200r oil pump question

    I bought a gp1200r at the beginning of last season and just rode it the way it was all season. After idling for a minute this thing just smokes like crazy like the oil pump is wide open all the time. I went poking around and the oil pump cable is not hooked up at all and is just totally slack, in this position is the pump wide open? at first I tried pulling on the cable to see if I could reconnect it but it wouldn't pull out far enough so I thought they must have zip tied something in there. well I started getting the sticking throttle issue and long story short is I have the exhaust off and carbs off and I want to get the pump working the way it should. I can flip the pump lever over and once you get it about an 1/8th of a turn you can then pull the cable and it moves freely. so with the cable totally slack is the pump wide open? I don't want to mess anything up by hooking it back up if the last owner messed with something internally on the pump, sorry for the long post

    Thanks, Josh

    yes, when the cable comes off the lever is spring loaded to go to max oil delivery
