Hi,

I'm not sure that member is still posting, can't help you myself but if you post the query over in Shotgun you will probably find someone who knows, traffic in the shed is very light these days.

Cheers

As I told you in PMs, Richo has forgotten more about bikes than most of us know.

He's the dude to be asking.

Where everything out here ain't what it seems
When I'm down to nothing, I just go ahead and dream
And face the fact that I'm a circle in a world full of squares

Mobil 1 15W-50 Automobile oil.  Just don't use it in your Harley tranny or primary.   pappychris.gif

I've experimented with all types of motor oils over the years.  Mobile One 15W-50 has been where I've landed the last year and seems fine.  I have about 1,500 on the most recent change and it looks like new.  I'm going to change the filter, add about a quart and go another 1,500 before doing the same thing....I'm going to send it out to be tested at 3,000 and if it's still good...well, maybe another 1,500 before I get nervous.
