it should be OK, but it should not be necessary.also.....ensure you are using 4 STROKE MOTORCYCLE OIL. just any 20w-40 won't due and automotive oil will not do.your owners manual should have a chart which specifies what weight oil to use for various ambient temperature ranges.use the oil for the ambient temperature where you live.Steve
