Need help with oil.

Recommended Posts

It's been a long time since I've posted here.

I drained my bike of oil 2 months ago and have been meaning to fill it back up but just haven't had the time. My biggest concern is what could the consequences be of no oil in the bike for 2 months? Obviously I haven't started it.

Also a few questions about oil:

I hear alot of good stuff about Amsoil but haven't seen many reviews. Would it be fine to run 10w-40 in both the engine and tranny side?

...and where the hell do we buy this stuff?! I've looked everywhere but can't find any.

The problem you can run into is that rust is starting. Almost every part in the trans and engine is steel. There's usually a coating of oil on the parts that stops them from rusting, but I can't tell you how many times I've pulled main bearings out of and found rust on them. These are usually running engines, so there shouldn't be an issue with just adding oil and firing it up. I'd kick is about 10 times easy after you refill it just to get oil through the engine. I wouldn't do this all the time.
