Default How to tell if oiler has been previously adjusted?

Just bought a used 2013 Pro RMK 800, how can I tell if my oil pump has been adjusted by a previous owner?

Ride it and track oil consumption, determine ratio, compare, adjust if necessary.

Inspection mirror and a flashlight go between the clutches.

Look at the oil pump lever arm. There is a scribe on the case and a notch on the lever arm. At idle, the factory position is set so the scribe lines up with the case. If it is a bit rich, the notch will be above the scribe.

To richen it up, undo jam not on top of the lever arm and adjust the screw with an allen wrench to lift the arm up.

^^ like this^^.........the notch and scribe mark should line up for stock setting. .. the pump is in a tight spot, so removing the exhaust can will give you a perfect view. Don't have a pic, but if you move the throttle lever, the oil pump arm will move, and you'll see exactly what the notch and scribe mark means.

Do a search in the pro-ride section - there are pictures of the stock and turned-up oiler setting and the service manual, and detailed instructions on exactly how to do it. Threads are 2012, 13, 14ish.
