Was out of town for a month, before leaving I put the RE on a battery tender, shut off fuel, and thought I put it on TDC.Well yesterday I went to start it, blew enough smoke out the pipe to kill every skeeter in the county. Blew oil out the duckbill breather all over the floor, what a mess. Rode it down the road, to clear it up stopped smoking, and ran fine. Checked oil level, was about half way down the stick.So what happend , wetsump? What do I do now? always thought that TDC was when the altmeter needle was on top. Maybe I was on BDC?If my bike sits very long it does the same thing. Usually I go out every week or so in the winter and give it a few kicks and maybe start it. If it sits for a couple of months, just drain the oil from the engine before starting. I think it is the front drain bolt on the bottom of the engine. I have 5 more bikes to keep up with so I am not sure of its location until I crawl under there and look....Dew.Good news is it started first kick.Andy
