No oil

Recommended Posts

Made my new dumbest mechanical mistake today. Started my bike (09 250sxf) without filling the crankcase with oil. I only had it idling for 5-10 seconds before I shut it off. But I did remember to fill the oil filter housing with oil. Wondering if I did any damage?

Any input is appreciated, thanks

Not a problem.

Mind explaining?

I'd be guessing it had oil the whole time with the filter housing full?

Thanks

Less than 10 seconds of friction won't do much. Oil sticks to the metal. Good oil sticks even better. And think about when you change oil, there's about 5 or more seconds till the system pressurized without oil flow

the only thing I would worry about is the cam bridge side without the gear, the left side of motor. It has no bearing and is an oil bath for lube and is known to gall if dry...but as said it had oil before so it is probly ok.
