Re: Help with 3 things

if anything with the oil, just replace it, as oil collects water on the surface from the air.

also the engine likes to collect water from the condensation and the cold weather.

if i work on a bike that's been in storage with the oil in it for some reason, i drain it before i do anything and leave it in the squash/coke bottle,
after a while the oil/water seperate and you can see how much water was in there
