Around the block won't do it. You need to put fresh oil in and go for a ride that gets the engine temperature up to full operating temperature (at least 3/8 of the way up or higher on the temp gauge) for several hours. Even better if you can periodically get the temperature high enough to have the fan kick on.Thanks, Steven. That's almost where I am now. It's pretty milky still. Will get a change in there, take it around the block, then repeat the process.
But I didn't ride it home. I was lucky and got rescued by a rally rider with a truck. I didn't risk the 200 mile ride home.
You're just prolonging the agony with around the block rides!!
