    01 GTX di stall repair & oil bleed

    I have an 01 GTX di 951. It was running great for about 20 min. Top speed ~ 57. As I was going along it was like I pulled the key out and it stalled. I can get it to start and take off no problem at first, but then it stalls quickly and gets harder to start until it's completely cold.
    This past weekend I pulled the fuel and oil tanks to give them a good cleaning and replace the filters. They were filthy from the previous owner. I had to fix an oil reservoir seam separation too. What a mess. I'm planning on testing it tonight after I figure out how to bleed the oil lines. I know you crack the bleeder screw, but how do you get to it? Do I really need to pull the exhaust to do something so simple?

    Thanks.

    Edit: No responses so I pulled the plugs, held it wide open and pressed the starter for a few five second or so bursts. Hopefully that'll be enough to prime the line that I pulled going to the tank.

    Take out the 4 plastic retainers on the glovebox and pull the box out. You can reach right down and loosen the bleeder screw. Don't chance it!

    I had the box out, but I didn't think I could reach it. I looked a little closer last night and realized I could. Thanks.
