Which 150cc engine is this?
I also agree with this, as a mechanic with over 30 years experience and a Harley rider for who knows how long... my sportster never sees oil temps above 200 degrees and I ride in San Antonio Texas and the surrounding areas so it's nice and hot over here from may until at least october... and these rides are minimum of 10 miles, but usually over 50 miles between stops, and that's only due to my little 2 gallon tank...
I check my oil tank regularly and oil level daily and have never seen any signs of condensation in mine or any of my friend's bikes that I maintain. I'm not Harley certified, but I've been working on them for over 20 years, and the mechanic I just hired last month is Harley certified... I let him take my top end apart and put it back together one day when we were bored so I know he knows what he's doing as well.
I don't need a piece of paper to tell people in know how to fix their bikes nor do I call myself a pro, but I let my work and my customers do all the talking...
