Ok. In a jam, which would you mix 0W-30, 5W-30, 10-W30 synthetic with spec 10-W40 synthetic?
Or get towed?
Or get towed?
On my way out of tow and forgot to check engine oil (me fool). Filled up at gas station, and now oil can light is on and won’t start.Why would you get it towed? What sort of jam are you in?
Be sure to avoid any oil that says 'energy conserving' in that little ring.
Yes. You’re right. My description sucks.What do you mean by won't start? Won't crank?
You’re right. My bad.What do you mean by won't start? Won't crank?
Isn't the oil light - and ABS light typically on until the motor is started? Can't say that I pay any attention to warning lights until the bike starts.Yes. You’re right. My description sucks.
Instruments light up. But won’t crank.
You’re right. My bad.
Won’t crank. Switch in run. Neutral. Clutch in. 11.9v. Hmmm trickle charged full last night and now I’m running with power adapter. Maybe my phone ran down the battery? But why engin oil light?
In your situation above do not start the engine unless you are going to take it for a decent ride. Starting an engine and having it sit there idling can cause moisture issues in the oil which can cause acids and these can also cause harm to the exhaust system.Assuming a low battery, I had a similar situation over the winter.
I keep the bike on a maintainer over winter and start it up about once a month.
