Quick Answer: Should you warm up motorcycle before oil change?

It’s not absolutely necessary, however , warm oil is less viscous and so drains more easily making the oil change easier and far quicker than from a ‘cold’ engine. Probably best to warm is up mildly so the oil is less viscous but not hot enough to burn you if it splashes on you ( which it may well do!).
