Too funny, Bare! It's true though. I actually use WD-40 in a tub for parts cleaning. Gets light gunk off without flash rust like chem-dip, but that's about all it's well suited for.
WD40 is not recommended for switches and contacts, it attracts and traps dirt and grime that eventually can interfere with electrical functions.
As for letting it rest with fresh oil, I did change the oil 281 miles ago (at 1486 miles), 2-½ weeks ago. Is it "clean" enough for winter storage?
I'll rephrase this part of my question for clarity. I understand that used oil can become acidic and "eat up" internal engine parts if left sitting over the winter, which is why an oil change just before storage is recommended. I have 281 miles on my current oil, which I changed 3 weeks ago (Mobil-1 V-Twin 20w-50 synthetic). Is this "used" enough that I should consider changing it again? I have 1486 miles total.
