***...bad oil

Went to add some oil, noticed some white 'blobs' in the oil... immediately tossed the crud, ran and picked up some 10w40 SM castrol... (of the non-enhanced) version. Pulled the plug, drained the oil... filled with a quart, drained it... put in another quart, then drained it. Last two quarts seemed clear, clean.

Think I'm safe enough to run or should I spin it up briefly, then flush a couple quarts again?
"new joke tomorrow..."

Probably o.k.
Down here condensation / humidity is a problem.
I recommend warming the bike up to operating temp. before you change the oil so that all of the condensation will burn off / become suspended in the oil.
