I haven't ridden my bike for about 10 months; pregnancy, 41 weeks of morning sickness & a beautiful baby boy are my excuses. Bike: 2006 Kawasaki GPX250. I spoke to my local Kawasaki shop & they said I need to do the following: - drain & replace oil - drain & replace fuel - check tyre pressure - see how battery goes once charged - a Service would be good but not necessary (it was last serviced June 2009) A friend said I should be able to just get on & ride. Can anyone advise whether it is okay to just get started & ride. Kawasaki said fuel will have gone off & that the oil will be degraded & not lubricate the engine.
