changing oil after stator/starter loctite fix

Recommended Posts

need to change my oil (leaking petcock, now fixed), and figure i'll do the stator/starter loctite fix first as its a good idea to change oil after. my question is, is it safe to start the bike, to warm the oil, right after the loctite fix, in order to change the oil? is it better to let the loctite cure overnight? i have a ride tomorrow, so would like to do it all tonight.

thanks

At least 8 hrs . At room temp, for steel . Other metals its longer .

when i did the loctite fixes, drained oil, loctite fixes, let it cure 24hrs, dumped in 2 liters, good to go. check your loctite/permatex tube directions, IIRC curing time is on there.
