Re: What is your startup routine?
Even though it has fuel injection why does it have choke? Do you guys use this? Often I can get it started without the choke. How long do you guys let your bike warm up before you get moving?
I always start it give it a nice rev or two put on my helmet and gloves, then take off.,I used to just ride off. Then I heard about a guy who did that and got a siezed engine. Then I remembered that I did the same to my last bike and the engine siezed. Now I let it warm up a bit.
The choke lever is just a cable that stops the throttle from returning all the way back--nothing more.,,,

I do not have a clue about this cycle being an oil burner. It may use more oil than usual if you drive it hard, but any engine will. Part of your daily , or at least once a week , pre-trip inspection should be to check the oil. Your concern should be replaced by diligence. One should never ride a motorcycle with out routine inspection for your own safety, and for that of others. Your attention to detail will soon make you the local expert on the cycle and the partial quart left over from the previous oil change will probably never get used.
hi buddy what is the oil level roughly at when running. on stand still it should be 1/2-3/4 full on sight glass if the oil appears to be ok you have a faulty sensor or is this light the low oil pressure light get back to me buddy
Do yourself a favor. Ride to a dealership and ask if they would go over the recommended owner maintenance with you. Have them show you how to do an oil change, spark plug change, set the idle speed, add water to the battery, clean the air filter, check the fuses, change headlight bulbs, and lube the scooter. Purchase lubricants, oil, and spark plug from them. Make friends with the dealer. Ask questions; how often?, what quantity?, how do I measure that?, what tells me I need to bring the scooter in for maintenance or repairs? A good dealer will be happy to show you knowing you will get parts and supplies from them as well as have them do any major repairs.
I've never been a big fan of automotive oil in a bike. That being said, maybe the Castrol can be used in bikes too I don't know. Anyhow, hopefully someone will be along that can better answer that part of your question. There have been many discussions pertaining to what oil to use. Drop a PM to OilDoc. He can probably answer that question very quickly for you. If this was a car, I'd say that the thermostat was stuck. Maybe start there.
You shouldn't have to tell him anything unless you have a problem with something.If it's just routine maintenance he should know what to do.if there's anything your not happy about with your bike tell him so he can check it out.
