...do you change the oil prior to first start up...Geeto67
I think you answered your own question, with the anecdote about your friend.

If I was about to start a long stored machine, I would drain the oil first, then fill with an inexpensive brand of 10W-30 automobile oil, then run the bike until hot, but not at high rpms, and then drain it and fill with a quality motorcycle oil.
