Gas in oil Damage?

Recommended Posts

I recently took the drz out of semi winter storage. It was sitting for 2 months. Figured i would change the oil after a good ride. Bike kept stalling and then would not re start. I figured the valves were getting tight so i pulled it down. During this excercize i realized that there was mucho gasolino mixed with the oil. So my question is does anyone think i did damage by riding it maby 5 miles like this? The fuel valve wasnt set on prime. The bike would run great untill it got hot. No loud noises or smoking.

5 miles, it should be fine. The stalling was probably due to rich mixture as the engine was breathing the gas fumes from the oil thru the breather system.
