Checking motorcycle engine oil regularly is important. That's because a number of variables, from air temperature to riding style, can affect how quickly you burn oil.
The rate at which your bike will use engine oil isn't a constant. Environmental factors such as poor fuel quality, extreme temperatures or just spirited riding can affect your bike's oil consumption.
Here at Castrol most of our motorcyclists check their oil level at least once a week, and always before going on a long run or a road trip.
That's because even if you stick religiously to the drain intervals and viscosity of oil recommended by the OEM, even the strongest oil won't protect your bike if the oil level gets too low.
So a weekly oil level check, and a top off whenever necessary, really is a vitally important part of looking after your motorcycle.
