hi all can anybody advise how to stop oil draining into the sump of my 16 m/s ?
the bike is only used perhaps every 2/3 weeks by which time the oil tank has drained into the sump/chain case!
what results have members had with spring loaded ball /flap valves and on /off taps with or without ignition cut outs?are they safe to use on amc bikes ,i have them on my velo as standard and they seem to work well.
i notice that the amc oil feed pipes are much larger than on ariel/ velo so i am wary off cutting down on flow rates
thanks in advance

Leave the engine on the compression stroke, that should stop it wet sumping.

Just drain the oil from the tank into a clean closed container and leave it standing next to the bike so you remember to put it back in.
