And if that doesn't work, there's always the "fag in the tank" solution. It saves a sore throat from swearing at it loudly which as an intermediate phase I found was ineffective and wasted valuble time

well phoned the firm in wales who reconditioned the engine after a brief chat about the problem they told us to check the sump plate on the right way around that was ok then the pick up pipe check that the ball bearing moved freely ours did nt hence the reason the the oil was not returning to the tank
sorted out the ball-bearing filled the tank with oil started the bike ran it for five minutes oil returning to tank and only the normal oil leaks from the rocker covers
so all sorted
