How to pump oil out of K1300GT crankcase?
I have not ridden my '09 K1300GT since last October. I have kept him on a Battery Tender.
I started him up last weekend. He fired up as expected, but soon was displaying the word OIL in the center display. The low oil pressure light was not lit and the warning triangle in the top display was not lit red or yellow.
On page 111 of his rider's manual I found:
"After longer motorcycle immobilization periods, engine oil can collect in the oil pan; this must be pumped into the oil tank..."
So who or what does the pumping? Can I ride him around the neighborhood until the OIL indicator goes out, or is there more to it?
Please help me understand this one.
Thanks in advance!
