I've never known it to make a difference.....a cold engine needs a few seconds for renewed oil lubrication either way.... :smile2:Am I correct you should never under any circumstances start the bike or crank over while its up on the center stand?
Newbie question, sorry.
I'd say neutral no matter what. I know of someone whose bike was in gear on the center stand and it got knocked off. Had enough stability to take off on its own.no problem starting/cranking on center stand, just use common sense. such as if the rear wheel is on ground, make certain your in neutral, or have clutch pulled in.
There are a few threads addressing new bike owners "Need to Know"...great info for newbies. I was a newbie once.....Cool, I guess I was overly cautious and wrong about stability. thats why I ask! thanks
Is there like a scan of any of the Vulcan's user manuals (not the full TSM for repairs) that address' basic things like this question, proper choke use etc.,?
I know a guy that lost a finger doing that...he grabbed a towel to wipe off the excess oil while the it was running in gear, rag got caught, pulled his hand into the sprocket.I lube the chain on my cb750 with the bike running in gear on the center stand
I just use my tongue...I know a guy that lost a finger doing that...he grabbed a towel to wipe off the excess oil while the it was running in gear, rag got caught, pulled his hand into the sprocket.
Isn't there a link to download an owners manual? (Not the shop manual)
Sounds like that's what you need there gidaeon....
