flooded bike.

I bought my old bike back after seeing it on GL. It had been in a.flood n san marcus. That was in oct. So it didnt sit too long.
Got everything drained new oil and so on.
My question is.... how long do u guys thing i should run it before chanving the oil again? I was thinking a out 100miles or so then change again after another.100.
Id like to be sure i get out all the water in side.

TIA

After about 4 hours of labor bike is up and running. Took it around the neighborhood a few tims already

How bad was it flooded? Was there any water inside to begin with? A motor will build up condensation by just sitting for extended periods of time anyways. I would run it to temp with a load (riding around for 30+ minutes) and then change it. And then ride the out of it. You should be good to go at that point. You'll be able to tell if there's still any moisture inside by keeping an eye on the sight glass and the underside of the oil fill plug. They'll both show milky white substances if there's any condensation in there.

If you ran it already everything is already out. Just follow 40acres advice. The diesel probably saved some compression or locking up.

I know it's a Hyosung, but I like the way that bike looks. A few mods and you could probably have that thing looking even better. Cool pick-up for the price!
