Oil change Necessary?
Yes I know....another oil related question. Did search and couldn't find anything related to this.
Put a new stator & rectifier in my bike last September. I thought that I only put on about 800kms/500miles on it before the end of the season, but just got my valve clearance done and they notified me it was closer to 1600km/1000miles. I've always changed my oil before winter storage (its always had over 3000km/1800miles at that point though), but didn't bother doing an oil change before winter storage as I thought the oil was fresher than it was.
My mechanic told me not to worry about it because I'm using full synthetic oil and I didn't start the bike once throughout winter storage and to just wait until I reach my oil change interval.
I rode the bike to the shop and back for the valve clearance and it seemed to have been running fantastic!
Anyways, what are you guys thoughts on this? I've only put 10 miles on the bike since winter storage (to shop and back) with this oil in it.
Thanks in advance!
