I'm a Pin Head!
« on: November 19, 2017, 11:36:16 PM »
My bike has been stationary because of my busy schedule and cold weather, so I decided to go and idle her for a bit. Started the bike up, phone rings, small crisis, long story short....wholly crap! Forgot! The bike idled for about 1.5 hrs! Checked it, and did not see any signs of oil burning or overheating, but a little concerned just the same. Any thoughts? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?....

If all looks OK, & it's running OK I wouldn't worry too much since the weather wasn't hideously hot & it didn't shut itself down.
Any real issues will show up if ya warm it up and take it out for a spin, maybe stay close for a bit.
Maybe change the oil if you're concerned, that won't hurt & they don't take much.

@Tromper

Good point about the weather. It was pretty chilly , about 42 degrees,  and being an air cooled engine it would have been bad news in the summer.
Next time I'm not walking away from the bike.  :-[
