I have a 1999 xc 600 and i need to know how to set the cable for the oil or adjust it,i think it;s getting to much oil at a idle it loads up on oil and then clears out and when i crack the throttle it leaves a oil cloud
On the oil pump, there are two lines, one on the oil pump lever, one on the oil pump body. The lines should be aligned at idle and the oil pump arm should start moving at the same time your throttle slides start moving. To adjust the pump, you need to loosen the two locking nuts on the oil pump cable adjuster. Turn the adjuster until the marks align, then tighten both lock nuts. This is a lot easier if you remove the exhaust pipe and can so you have some space to work in.
