Dry sump question

2 posts in this topic

This is the first dry sump bike I have owned and due to the wording in the owners manual about never starting the bike without any oil in the frame, I don't want to make a costly assumption. After an oil change, does all the oil get added only to the crankcase? When running the engine for a short time would pump the excess back into the frame but wouldn't there be some time when no oil is being pumped into the engine?

That is why starting a cold engine creates the most wear. Lubrication is not up to temperature and the oil has run off most parts if it has sat for too long.

Dont worry about it as soon as the engine starts it pumps oil thru to the critical parts.
