Default Re: Just ordered another rose326 kit.

Two things:
16:1 is FAR too much oil and your motor will never run right.
The tensioners almost ALWAYS require a twist to line up. I use a huge crescent wrench to give it the proper twist. DO NOT try this ON the bike or you will likely bend the framestay.
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
