I"ve owned my B31 for some years and until very recently it never wet sumped.I run on straight 40 and at the last change used oil from a different supplier ie Miller rather than Castrol.That might be the cause but I doubt it. Anyway I bought a Bri tie anti wet sump valve but lost my nerve and to date have not fitted it.Bri Tie say they have sold thousands of them and have had no complaints. Fit and forget no failures. Have any of you guys out there fitted one ? Are they safe?

The dealer I bought my Bri Tie anti-sumping valve from must not have fed back my info, 'cause mine created a "vapor lock" in my oil pump suction and trashed my motor.

So there's at least one, and I've read of more.

Rather than spend money on a band-aid, I'd fix the problem and be done with it.

Search this site for "wet sump" or "anti-sump" and get a vast array of information on the subject ...

Thanks for your kind offer of an anti wet sump valve but I would rather stick my tongue in a fan.
Risk of failure (like lannis said) is just too high. I would rather have a motor wet sump 100 times than have that valve fail once.

Most everyone on this form has gotten something off E-bay. Passing off junk isn't what we do to other bikers, do we?

The Bri Tie Valve is good but come's with no fitting instructions.
frown DO NOT DRAIN THE OIL TANK eek

Remove the oil pipe and allow to flow quickly remove the banjo from the Engine fit the valve and reconnect the oil pipe while it is still flowing. bigt
This has the efect of bleeding the oil line beerchug

Velos have a similar anti-drain valve in the supply oil line, it screws into the bottom of the oil tank, and the oil line attaches to it. They are quite reliable. However, the manual specifically states that if the supply side oil line is disturbed, it must be primed with a pressure pump. The manual also warns against oil line connections that are not airtight. Most Velos have transparent supply oil lines, so that you can check for air bubbles. I put an anti drain in my A65 because even with a rebuilt oil pump, a new sping and anti-drain valve ball, it still wet sumped quickly. I was carefull to prime the line. I have not had any problems.
