Hey guys, my 04 450 has one ride on a oil change i did awhile back.. It has set for about 2months now. Should i drain and change it again before riding?

After only 2 months I doubt the oil is bad. Ride it around the back yard a couple laps and then check the oil. If it's dirty then change it, if it's clean then change after the next ride.

I agree, but remember change every 5 to 6 hours running time..oil is cheap compared to an engine....enjoy
