Re: Oil Burning after Side Stand Use
One day i was out just running around looking for a good used Honda GoldWind, a buddy of mine let me ride his and i thought that's what i wanted.
Driving home one day i drive by this dealership that has a 1994 BMW k1100lt out front right by the road, i thought i will turn around and go check it out.
It wasn't cleaned up at all, but i could tell that it was in very good condition. I stopped and inquired about the bike. The first thing i notice is that the bike is really tall, really dirty , 26,000 miles, beautiful and on its side stand. I asked if i could give it a test ride, he responded, let me get the keys. Now when he gets back he begins to explain to me that the bike hasn't been started in a couple of weeks and it has not been moved, so it might not start, he climbs on the bike sits it upright and it fires right up on the second try but is smoking quite a bit, over the engine running he tells me that this is normal,and I,m thinking, yea right. I ask to take if for a test ride and he says sure, so i climb on this beast, in a gravel parking lot mind you, and i cant back it up because of how the bike is sitting,
