I went through the rest of the motor adjustments and made a simple wiring harness to start it up without frying anything. It started and ran well yesterday. Got a quick adjustment done on the carbs and it idled fine, had good response and seemed smooth. The motor is smoking a bit, but it hasn't run in who knows how long and I did add a fair amount of oil in the cyclinders for the compression test. Also, I do not know if these bikes are prone to wet-sumping like the old brit bikes.

I've got the extended oil sump so hopefully I've also got the balancer mod
The retrofits were entirely peicemeal, so sump extension does not mean adjustable chain. The factory and dealers were all over the map with this stuff. Easy to check, look in under your shifter.. BIG hex plug? Or big jam nut woth the shaft having a slot milled in it, and a tab washer to lock the nut? Here are the links to the adjustment procedure:
As for wet sumping, I've never experienced it, and never read anything about it for a TX. One of the Brit "quirks" they solved with some sound engineering.
Too much is just barely enough.....
