I was just wondering if any body had some ideas or just want to put your 2 cents in. My bike is a 1977 xs650 chopper that I have been working on for too long now five years now.My plan was to rebuild the motor but ran out of money, so new plan just run the bike with the motor as is and rebuild next year when I got funds. I replaced some gasket to help with oil leaks, sump filter and oil change and filter. ANY IDEAS BEFORE I FIRE IT UP?

Pull the plugs, squirt some oil on the rings, kick/turn it over a few times to prime the oiling system. Reinstall plugs and go for it!
