Re: Engine maintenance Question
Some of the oil is still stuck to the cam and cylinder walls. Just keep the batteries charged and the tires overinflated and off concrete (or on stands if you can). Reset the tire pressure when it's time to ride.
Starting an engine and not running it for at least a half hour is not favorable for it due to moisture and condensation inside the cylinder that makes it's way down to the oil pan.
When the engine is run at full operating temperature, the water suspended in the oil vaporizes given enough time (approx. 30 mins). The water cycle starts again every time the engine is shut down, a necessary ingredient for corrosion. This is why winterizing oil is thicker because it adheres to the metal parts better than motor oil with some of the additives designed specifically to adhere to metals in a static machine.
