Oil in frame
Posted November 10, 2002 - 09:39 AM
( i have read the manual but i can't find any other spot to fill oil into than the frame tank )
And during the cold winter here in sweden im gonna store it in my basement, if i empty the oil from the engine, and fill new oil to the frame, can i let it be that way for the next 2 1/2 months, or do i need to start it to lube the crankcase and the cylinder before it is stored?

And for the garage storage, would you recommend that i started it up, to make it spurt around some oil ( from the tank to the crankcase ) before i store it during the winter? or is it enough to open the valves, hold the kill switch in and kick a couple of rounds on the kick?
And remember if i can help you with anything ( wich i probably can't, just ask )

For the winter storage I think you better start it, so that oil gets in most places possible.

Blue beast i kicked it over 6 times before i started it to let the pump do the job,
but i had the end of the exaust out my basement door, but the exhaust fumes smelled funny, like something was burnt (fuel ofcourse) but something else to, but i guess it's cause it's brand new , and i smelled it better bacuse this time the bike didnt move , just idled for about a minute or two but oh well, its prepared for winter storage, and ill take my time and start it over atleast every 2:nd week, to see to it that it is circulating inside, so its not just standstill for 2 1/2 months.
Sabin, hehe the oil is monkey buisiness hehe the first time i did it on my 2smoke i wasn't ready for it, it came with pressure i guess it was vaccume or something, but anyways all over the driveway, but hay that made the powerwash come in handy for another reason
