Oil change, HOT or COLD?

I like to stir things up, as you can see.

what say Ye?

yeah I know if its warm it will drain out easy....But if its been sitting for a few days, then most of the oil should be at the bottom and Ill have less cross contamination when I put the new stuff in?

may even flush the sump after I drain the old stuff out.

Simply because the oil will drain better and more completely.

Run your own experiment.

Yes, I am sure....40 years of being a mechanic and doing this have shown me the light.

As I said, do as you will.

but you havn't given, an explanation or reason, that's not convincing.

What if you ARE wrong, then effectively what you'd be saying is "I've been doing it wrong.... for 40 YEARS!!!"

Listen Junior, as I said, do it your way. I’m not here to “prove” anything. Now, if you want to continue to goad me, you will be disappointed in that response from me, too.

Hey @MikeDanger here's the answer you seek....BECAUSE THE GUYS WHO DESIGNED AND BUILT THE BIKE TOLD YOU TO.!!

Or, you can take the advice of anonymous people on the internet who know everything and have a better way..... OR, just add oil as needed when the level gets low and NEVER change it. (there are some who do this).

Make your choice, pay your money, take your chances.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.
