So after work today I went to my local bike shop, wheels in motion.
For us LA peeps if u ever need anything for your bike go to wheels in motion off of the 118 freeway near de Soto nd Plummer... Great prices and chill nd cool staff
Anyways... So I went there nd bought nd installed a fresh new pair of 2CT's! ;D
I was running Q2's before this set and I loved em! But I do a lot of commuting do I decided to go with some more commuter firefly tire without sacrificing grip for the twisties
Then I remembered she need an oil change!!!
So after getting the tires on I left the shop a happy man with new tires, a gallon jug motul 300v full synthetic nd a new k&n oil filter.
how I carried this on my bike with no backpack just my gear I have no clue but all u saw was a guy carrying a jug of oil fighting traffic! Lol
So after taking off the oil filter nd plug with ease
I let it drain for a few minutes while its still nice nd hot
I even tipped it over on the stand to make sure I can get all the old oil out as much as possible
Idk if anyone else does this but while the plug was off I threw in some fresh oil but just a bit to really flush out the old oil nd then leaned it over some more
After doin the oil change I lubed up the clutch cable with some wd40
after that I killed the wd40 can by cleaning the chain thoroughly even the inside part that people might miss.
All of this I did with no bike stand nor a second pair of hands so it did take a while
The new rear
chain was still dirty in this pic.....
So after doing the maintenance I washed her down to get all the oils nd gunk nd wd40 off the tires nd such
in the end I was left with this much oil
I couldnt accurately gauge the oil level thru the sight glass since I cant get the bike leveled nd get down on one knee to check the oil
But tomorrow ima get some help to really gauge the oil
Wat do u guys think based on from Wats left in the jug, too much or too little oil left in the jug
Any advice/critique is well welcomed!
Thanks for reading!
