Why, you can't buy oil in shutdown anyway.  ::)

I'm sharing the oil from my "broken" Cruiser with my bike.  That shouldn't be a problem should it Welsh? I read on Twitter it's OK to do that.

Just strain it through a sock.  :sip:

En hoorie, ek het 'n fiets wat in Secunda vir my staan en wag.  Verwag jy nou waaragtig ek moet my smoel hou oor die "lockdown" affÍre?  Ek raak ongeduldig.  My vrou dink ek kyk pronografie op my foon ek loer daai kiekies so baie.

3. What pressure should my tyres be before changing the oil and is this dependent upon whether I sit or stand? 

Tyre Pressure does not matter here, what matters is what Grade the Oil is. If you pour Multigrade slowly the Weight on the Sidestand should be minimal but any other Oil requires you to to adjust your Dampers on the left front and rear if you live in the Southern Hemisphere.

Thanks @Offshore.  I dialed up the damping on the centre rear shock and now the bike runs a lot quieter. If I increase the preload on the front fork will this make it even quieter?

Gooi dit ook eers in n glas saam met ys. En voeg jou gunsteling geur van Oros by.
En di belangrikste is:

3 omwentelings antikloksgewys in n oostelike rigting terwyl in di glas, uitgooi moet suidlangs geskied in n kloksgewyse beweging

Oor die linker of regter skouer?

Wou nie tegnies raak nie maar aangesien daar nog onsekerheid is.

Dit moet jou vrou se beste wyn glas wees. (Sub standard produkte gaan nie geduld word nie. Tensy dit n polystyrene glasie is)

Moet hom balanseer op jou voorkop terwyl jy geblinddoek is om seker te maak jy mors nie in jou oŽ nie.

En pinkie vinger in jou regter oor om te luister vir enige vuilgoed wat dalk mag uit val.
Freedom is when you get to a T-junction and think to yourself.

Yes definitely but only at full Throttle going into lefthand corners, remember, we are in the Southern Hemisphere. In right hand Corners you must BEEE aware of the noisy Left Noise. :ricky:

I get it. That Southern Hemisphere thing is very important then I gather. And countersteering is opposite when in the Northern Hemisphere?

Onthou as jy olie aftap moet jy nuwe valve clearances ook insit. Kyk sommer of daar slytasie op die powerband ook is. Baie ouens vergeet dit dan verstaan hulle nie hoekom die bike nie perform nie  :thumleft:

Jy moet die petrol ook eers uit tap voor jy olie mag in gooi om te verhoed dat dit meng.



Ja maar dan waar gaan die verkoelingswater?

Ek dink dis nogals eienaardig dat julle almal nie vir Dorsland, die OP en n ou wat heel duidelik help soek, n ernstige antwoord kan gee nie!
Dis lelik, en dit sal die arme ou novice hier wegjaag sommer - foei manne  >:D

Ou Dorslandjie,
ek dink jy's op die regte spoor met alles, maar een ding is tog redelik asook besonders belangrik en niemand het jou nog daarmee gehelp nie: sit asb die bike se enjin af voordat jy die ou olie laat uitloop!
En dan start jy die enjin eers weer nadat jy die nuwe olie ingewurg het!
O, en die nuwe olie wurg mesn effektiefste in as jy daai bout onder inni sump weer indraai en vasmoer met n impact tool, n hamer werk beste hierso - ek neem aan jy het n groot een?
Dan ook, vloeibare olie werk beste, glo my vry, ek het alles al probeer!

Skree as jy nie die kloutjie by die oor kry nie ne?
