Mobil 1 here and I try and catch it on sale and buy it in bulk 12 Qts at a time at Advance Auto.
Here we go again......
I'm running Mobil One 15/50 also in mine as well.
When it goes on sale oreillys will match it.... Or they will match Walmart. We also stock chrome or black wix and kn filters.
Right!!! I think Sven should donate $$$. When you pay for somethin you respect it more..... ,
No, I think you missed the point. I could give two shits how you say you need to get this off your mind is you did. Now, jump over my posts, pretend I'm not here. I do unto others before they do. Go ask Franco and see if any posts were answered or finalized for others, and this was before I showed up. Same shit around the net so either take the bike to some hack or do it yourself.
See the cashier if you want me to get to the point. Theory is free in other words. I got paid [for a hobby] working on your generic bikes... name the brand they are all still pink inside.
Because it's high tech and simple science at the same time and not my fault you do not grasp the handcuff of the abstract. And I'm not trying to be a dick. The OP has a simple or complicated problem to be addressed. I'm not here to fuck around when it comes to this shit. And just for you Paul, next thread I'm interested in and have somewhere to look, 'it's short and sweet.' Here's an example...
... It's not the oil used, it's how clean that air filter is maintained.
Used to run Royal Purple throughout went to Mobile 1 ($7.95) a qt.) Lessened the vibration and noise a bit. Royal Purple is as thin as Canola oil.
pretty slick wording bro...
It's not the kind of oil you use, it's the up keep of the oil filter...
Well shit why didn't you just say so the first time man and save me ranting over reading that 2 page post lol..
are we good, for now?????? granted, Sven is one difficult SOB to understand, but sometimes he can have some good meaning in what he posts. like i said before, maybe 5% of the people understand him 25% of the time.
And sometimes he just a big ole Meat Puppet couldn't help myself Sven
OK, my experience is not from motorcycles, but from heavy trucks. But with engines that can run north of $35,000 to rebuild, I have done extensive lab testing. And this is what I've found
1. As long as the oil you use has the proper rating as specified by the engine manufacturer it will protect your engine as well as any other.
2. Synthetic oils do not protect any better than modern conventionals. The benefit to synthetics is their reduced resistance to flow, thus providing better cooling capabilities.
3. Oil does not wear out. It gets contaminated. In trucks we've found that with proper filtration we don't need to change oil. Simply change filters on a regular basis and monitor & replenish additive levelsas needed.
Of course, I'm dealing with a unit that holds $500 worth of oil, I'd change oil in a bike just to save the hassle factor and for piece of mind.
My suggestion is this,
Change your filters twice as often as recommended
Change your oil 1/2 as often as recommended.
Have your oil lab tested every time you change the filters.
Use whatever oil makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside. As long as it meets specifications.
Lab testing has saved me a ton of money. It will let you know when something inside the engine is going out, usually long before catastrophic failure. I have found bearings that we're starting to wear through sampling that could have turned into a nightmare if it weren't caught well in advance.
Does anyone use Synthetic in all holes?
Never seen a 15/50 there. In a 5 qt jug must be running standard automotive oil?

synthetic in the primary tends to cause slippage for the clutch more times than not. motor and trans is a yes.
with Mr Old Fart,
I have never seen 15/50, 20/50 yes. I always change my oils yearly, whether its 2-2500 miles on the Dog, or 3-4000 on my vehicles and I use Mobil 1.
I corrected it for you.....
