I'm planning on completely flushing out the oil in my 12R to help clean out any possible debris that might be a result of a recent fuel system clean (using a fuel additive).
The plan is to get hold of one of those 'oil flush' oil-additives that you add before draining the oil. Normally you add this to a hot bike and let it idle for 10 minutes. AFter that, I will drain the oil. Then I'm going to add some cheap car oil and take it for a 10 minute run to flush out any remaining dirty oil.
After that, I'll drain the oil again, change the oil filter and put in the proper oil. Hopefully this will be as good a flush as possible.
My only doubts are:
1) Using the oil-additive which is obviously meant for cars and not for wet-clutches (but hopefully the cheap oil will flush it out).
2) Taking the 12R for a short ride with cheap oil in it.
Any of you folks offer any advice?
