I concur with these guys-you should be ok. Lots of people are not knowledgeable, ignorant, or worse apply "auto type thinking" to bike. In the Army, my buddy from basic who happened to get stationed at Ft Carson with me for our first duty station, borrowed my treasured 1992 Yamaha FZR600. Loved that bike. Anyway, he rode it to Pueblo from Ft Carson/Colorado Springs-I guess about 35 miles. Nice open roads and twisties, of course. He convinced me because it was for the v-jayjay.
So by bro code I lent him my precious. Moron went to get gas, and looked at the oil sight glass and I guess figured my neurotically meticulous self just half-assed his bike and neglected the oil. He later told me, he thought the dipstick was broken and figured after you removed the oil cap, you filled it to the top. So my buddy, who I am still friends with (somehow) filled it to the rim with car oil! Dude bro started riding it and said oil was shooting out exhaust and got on tire and almost wiped out. He left it in Pueblo and I had to get it after he decided he messed up and it was too dangerous to ride. Nice. We didn't talk for a while and I was furious he was a total "buddy ******," as we like to say in the Army. After several years after getting out, I forgave him as we didn't talk for several years. But it still irks me even though he is a close friend. What was even worse is that he could have killed himself. So moral of the story is, unless you know what you're doing, don't mess with the fucking bike or oil. Still shake my head when I think about it... More isn't always better.
