oil separator cleaning

Does anyone know if I can run soap and water through the oil separator? I want to make sure there's no sand in there before reinstalling this motor.

I would run solvent through the separator before water. If you only have water to use I would get it as hot as possible so it will disolve the oil. Boiling perhaps.

Thanks, I'll get some solvent... laquer thinner maybe?

Lacquer thinner will work. Be sure that you blast all of the thinner out before reinstalling the separator.

Yup, I'll put a whole bunch of air through it. Thanks again.

How many do you want? I have plenty of 'em unless you want the NX650 gear. Need a shift fork? You probably won't know until you open it up.
