1st off, thanks Magnum for the great tutorial! Now my questions. I don't have any stands so hopefully I'll be ok. My bike is a 2008 but only had 241 miles when I got it. The original owner (and the manual verifies this) said that the first scheduled change was 600 miles. However I'm not real keen on the idea of running 2 + year old oil regardless of the mileage. Is this safe thinking on my part or should I just wait until the 600 miles. Also I was planning on running Mobil 1 4T syn but I've heard many people say to run dyno for the first couple of oil changes to allow the rings to fully seat. Is this crazy or would I be better off just putting the OEM Kawachem oil in for the first one or two changes. Sorry to come off as such a newbie (I've been changing the oil in my autos since I was 16) but this is my first bike and I want to do everything right. Oh yeah, when do I need to lube my chain and what's the best cleaner and lube to use.
