How many of you change the oil before winter storage? If you do and use Synthetic during the season do you use standard oil for storage?
Hahaha I would have been riding yesterday for sure but I had shit to do all day before work. Tomorrow is supposed to be gorgeous too. I'll ride until it hits 30's or the roads are sanded. After that, no thanks. Just not enjoyable anymore and I don't feel like hitting a sand patch either. I put almost 6,000 miles on my bike since June 1st. I love to ride, just not if it's freezing.Whuss! Grow a pair!
70* and sunny here. Going riding now!
Just put mine out for winter. Put fresh Synthetic Motul, new HD filter, plug in the tender and that's it.
Removing the old filter though wasn't easy... the service a$$hole who did the 1000Mi must've been angry or something.... I took the bottom radiator bracket off for access, kept wrestling the damned thing off, wouldn't budge. Punch the scewdriver through, nope... took a really long motherf*** screwdriver and slooooowly loosened the sucker. It took like a full revolution to be able to move it by hand. Unreal.
But it's done, so there... till next spring!!!
but with the K&N filter you still must change the filter every 5k miles.Thats why I am a fan of the K&N oil filter. It has a 17mm hex nut built into the top. Grab it with a socket and its off with no problem.....plus, its chrome.
