just got my 800 triple running in my 01 mach and i bled the oil pump as shop manual says with the screw on the side... and my 2 lines are lined up on the oil pump lever and body.. manual says i should see the air leaving the small individual oil lines going to each cylinder but the lines are a dark blue and cant see oil moving i am just paranoid about this engine i want to make sure everythings perfect and the oil pump is working as it should before i leave my driveway

thanks

I ALWAYS mix the first tank of gas with oil at 50:1 after any oil pump draining. Then fill the oil tank completely full and go ride. If the oil is going down normally, you will be oiling at about 25:1 and probably foul plugs, but if it isn't going down normally, you still have lubrication via the oil you put in the gas. The price of some fouled plugs is not near as bad as a couple of cylinders/pistons...
