Change the oil filter now or March?


Recommended Posts

In process of getting my bike back on the road (as per my other posts)

My bike lost nearly all the oil due to the accident in October and has been sat in my garage since.

I am wondering whether to change the oil filter when I add new oil tomorrow or leave the filter and replace that in a few months or so when I do a full service. The oil filter and oil was only replaced in September.

I am not sure if the filter in place now would cause any problems with it being stood for a few months. I only want to get the bike out and about for a for few hours here and there and will be doing a full service around spring so the filter will be replaced then regardless.

Would this be ok or would there be some problem?
