    Oil Change on a Cold Bike.

    One of my friends got his bike out of storage, and didnt warm up the bike and drained the oil and pulled the filter out and drained the oil out of it too.But he didnt warm up the bike before and let the oil drain for 15-20 mins and then filled it up with synthetic.(Had cheap cambodian tire oil before.). He used the same filter too as it was a new one just for storage.

    Does this damage the bike anyhow.Just trying to help some1 before he messes up something big.

    Personally i dont think it makes much of a diff tho.

    But would like comments from the techies.

    its recommended to warm up the engine but your bike won't die if you didn't just remind him next time.... what kind of filter is he using the factory ones? i don't think its cool removing the oil filter and then draining it and put it back on though...

    -if you didn't warm up the engine and running for a bit you won't get a nice thorough drainage of the engine because the oil is still thick but by warming it up you get a nice drainage because oil becomes thinner from the heat.....

    - for the cheap oil its okay you don't need the best stuff for winterizing your bike, you just want it in there to protect the engine for rusting and to lubricate the moving parts

    I fill my bike up for storage and I wont be able to warm it up due to the fact that its got 3 liters in it(way over filled for a R6). Its not a big deal...in fact its not a deal at all.

    In the grand scheme of all things.....this is infintesimally small.

    Just add some new oil next time INTO the filter before reinstallation.
