Depends on how you rode it with the exisiting time on it.

Remember, oil is the lifeblood of a thumper. Surely, there is a Wally World, or something where you can pick up some oil from.

If it was mine, and it was brand new with the factory oil fill, I would change the oil and put a new filter in it. The filter would be a Scotts Stainless, too. That's what I would do.

There's no reason to miss the ride over getting that done. It's an easy job. :cry:

Since your bike only has 2.5 hours on it, YOU WILL BE OK for another ride before changing your oil.

this is the VERY MOST CRITICAL TIME to change the oil.

"what we do now echoes in eternity" -- these were Gladiator's very words regarding changing your oil frequently during break-in.

Like most kids his age, asking for advice will turn out to be something he occupies himself with before he does what he wants to do anyway, in spite of what we advise him. Most likely. :)

If he's that desperate, he can figure out how to get it done.

If you are stranded right now with no way to go, I'd at least stop on the way to ride and get some oil (w/o friction modifiers). Wal-Mart usually carries Shell Rotella, both dino (15w40) and synthetic (5w40), as would any truck stop, and probably some gas stations. That is what I run in mine, and is a good oil. Take something to drain the oil into and AT LEAST change the oil. It would be much better if you could change the filter as well and check the frame strainer thing (that never seems to have anything in it, but you never can tell what may be in there from mfg.).

Sure, it may be fine if you don't............by why risk it on such a high strung expensive bike? :)

I second the Scott's stainless filter.........saves you money and you will never be "without one" again. :)
