Changing oil type..what 2 do?




Recently purchased a second hand 04 fe450 with 3000km done. The previous owner ran it on Motorex Fully syth oil. I have around 10 litres of Motul 5100 (which is a blend) left over from previous bike and thought rather than wasting it, I'd like to use it in the berger.

Is it any detriment to the internals changing oil types?If so..what? If not, would you just change oil as per the usual processs oris there some other method required when you change oil types ie... drop oil, fill with new (different) oil, ride around the block, drop oil and filters, then replace with new oil and filters?

Any helpsahelp
