    Default 1000kms

    Hey all, winter storage is almost upon us here in Canada. Should I change the oil out with such little kms. Or just leave it? I was also thinking just empty the oil out and fill in spring, don't change filters. With only 1000kms, makes not much sense to change the oil before it sits over winter. Thanks all

    With just 600 miles on it I'd take it out for a ride of at least 70 km so everything gets fully up to operating temperature and lay it up until spring.

    I am usually the one that's saying change it out for winter storage!! But not with1000km on the oil! Put your tender on the battery, stabil the gas, and put the blanket on the thing!! Hope you get to ride it more next year!! Good night!!!

    Thanks all, I picked the bike up last weekend in Sept, so not much mileage. I was thinking the same, very low kms do I really need to change. Maybe just dump oil but keep same filter but probably wont even do that. Thanks

    I'm in Ontario as well, Frankie69, picked my 2018 RTL up in Thunder Bay (dealer demo) and rode home first week of September with temps as low as 4C (39F for you southerners) ... still riding up as far as yesterday but I think it's finally time to put her away until spring!! Im in York Region just south of Lake Simcoe as a reference.... never so much as sat on an RT before getting on and driving it 1400km/900 miles home. Quite the adventure!
