Ah, satisfaction of routine maintenance  :i_am_so_happy:

I've taken to doing a flush with 10W50 mineral diesel engine oil. I'm not sure of the real benefits, but the oil looks cleaner longer. The flush is using a filter set aside for the flushing, and a 10 minute ride with the diesel oil then dump, filter swap for new and top up. Old oil is mixed with diesel or kero and painted on my fence posts to stop the bloody white ants.

I take the bottom cowl off when I do the change. Do you have any issues leaving it on?
