Default Wet mod for 2018 starter

I have read people mentioning the wet mod for the starters so just a couple quick questions. Basically what I am understanding is to plug up the hole in the bottom of the ignition housing, remove the starter and bendix and clean all of the grease off everything , put it back together and dump 4 ounces of 5W fork oil into the bendix assembly. Is that it? Am I missing something or any other tips? Also does this oil ever need to be changed?

That is it mate. You can add a small vacuum fitting up the top so it can breathe as well. Beta do not but I thought it was a good idea too on mine. No issues at all what so ever with the electric start. It spins the quickest out of all my mates and always engages. I would just change it when you do a top end.

Thanks. So by doing this there is no worry about getting oil onto the stator?

The stator will be covered in oil, I have used a synthetic gearbox oil in mine and never had an issue with this Gassy or about three others I have done it to.

Ok thanks for the help. One more thing, is 4 ounces the right amount? I see for KTM it was 4 but then people started doing 2 instead. And for the vacuum is it necessary, does it need to be drilled and tapped, and does it go on the ignition housing?

I am in metric land. I have no clue what an ounce is! 🤣 I think I run about 75 millilitres. Yes I drilled and tapped the stator cover. Somewhere up top and away from wiring/accidental damage will be fine.

We did a mate's. It blew some oil out of it. Then drilled and tapped an empty grease fiting and put a tube upwards towards under tank on it. Great ever since.

So the bendix gears are sitting above the oil so they will be dry until things start spinning?

Pulled my bendix cover the other day for the first time to see how it is going after a month of sitting around, still covered in oil and no wear to the bendix cover at all.
