Last year I changed the oil and filter, probably did about 300 miles then the bike went into storage for a year. During that time It was started and idled for 20 minutes probably 4 times total.
Since the engine and oil hasnt had much use at all, do I need to change it now at the start of the season, or can I run it on the oil in there until November and then change it.
Thanks

Because £20's roughly the cost of 4 Full Breakfasts  munch  Would you go in the cafe tomorrow and order 4 full plates  Worth changing unusued oil? 693183  then scrape them in the bin because you didn't get a fork straight away?   Worth changing unusued oil? 512357

It'll be fine to run for the year. Oil life is based on time on the clock, (running), and your oil sounds like it only has just over an hour on it...
