OK, I think I already know the answer to this, but will ask anyway. Before putting her away last fall, new oil & filter installed. Before any chance to ride this spring, I had a total knee replacement. Didn't get out on it until May-ish, getting my legs back under me. Several long ride/ rallies were cancelled, other life obligations, little time for much riding. Then dealt with a kidney stone for weeks in Sept. Today I got out on her for about 70 miles. Total for the year is less than 400. Might still get out a bit in the next few weeks, IDK. So, with less than 500 mi., should I still change the oil and filter like I normally would before the long nap? I have a couple filters and enough Mobil 1 4T 10W40 (thats whats in her) for several changes. FWIW, I stored her for 5 months at a time 2 winters in a row off the floor on a HF yellow jack, then I built a wooden stand a couple years ago. She is also always hooked up to a Battery Tender Jr. and sits out in an unheated barn. It's the best I can do, and I never remove the battery from the bike.
