It is pretty hot here and my bike seems to be making more noise than usual when at idle, probably due to the thinner oil!
When I got home after a 40 min trip in the unusual heat, I was too lazy to walk to mail box so I coasted over on the bike.
When idling on the side stand I could see the oil in the sight glass, say 1/2 full.
Question is should you see the oil? Would the oil pump not keep it moving? I ask because I really don't recall seeing oil in the window when idling, and I am getting a little panicky about the louder than norm rattling!
