General GS500 Discussion / Re: Oil Relief Valve
« Last post by gsJack on Today at 12:33:30 AM »
Yes, it's an actual part and I suspect it's in the sump.... grrr I think I'll just take it down and have a look.

What ???? GS has a sump ??? you mean the oil pan ???
That got no pressure. How can there be a bypass there ? what would it be bypassing.
Bypass is if your filter is clogged or your fuel pressure is too high to flow through the filter.
Cool.
Buddha.

If the oil pump is pumping enough oil to lube the top of the engine at idle it would be putting out way to much flow and pressure at 10k rpm so some oil must be dumped back to sump to relieve flow and pressure.  Suzuki calls it a regulator assy.  Yes, sump=oil pan area.

Well, I dunno but it's an actual part that you can buy at the Suzuki dealership nd they do go bad every once and  while.

Thanks--good to know. I never had Yamahas that made the oil that dirty, but the oil was quite easy to change on them.

That's all the wear metals from your fork bushings. I change fork oil every time I change the front tire. The most important change is the first one, lots of crap in the oil from the sliding parts of the forks wearing in to each other. After that you could probably go every other tire change.

Time for some electrickery on the Kat... I need to steal the R/R off the 450 for 10 minutes at some point to drill mounting holes so it can go underneath the tray.
