AirHeaded - Ah-8-Tee-Ah-Tee Slippery Fluids

Changed all oils today. Engine, gearbox and final drive.
These were all changed a few years back, ridden once and then parked up. All the oils were clean.
On startup today she was making a lot of blue smoke.
Went for a short ride. Engine nice and hot. Less smoke.
Waited an hour or so. Restated no smoke. Considering it's been parked up for years I don't wonder some oil has gotten into the firing chamber.


Engine sump plug - No sparkles from the engine.


Gearbox plug - very fine metal paste. Nothing to stress about.


How I refill the gearbox with oil. The filler hole is just above the shift lever.
