Oil Change Required After Sitting?
I searched several pages of oil change threads and did not see an answer to my question.
I live in the Midwest and, unless you are a die hard, there are 2-3+ months where riding is risky or not practical due to snow, ice, and cold wet weather. Especially this year. Consequently, my 2012 Strom sits in the garage during this time. Typically, I change the oil in the spring before I do any riding regardless of mileage. Is this necessary after the bike has sat idle for several months or should I just follow the mileage recommendations in the manual?
