A GOOD read about OIL

Recommended Posts

In reality anything that lubricates will work in a pinch. If your are stuck out on a trail and punch a hole in the case, Quicksteel and fork oil will get you back on the trail. Fork oil also works for premix.

I thought it should be noted, this stays true for the visa-versa situation.

I just like how the article explains that no major 'full synthetic' labeled oil made in this country is actually group 4/5 synthetic.  They are all Group 3 dino oils with extra refining.   The labeling laws were lobbied away, so now you can call it what, practically.

Castrol Syntech 'euro formula' is an execption, as it is from Germany, and is mostly group 4/5 lubricant.

What do you think the Snake should run in her brand new Ktm? It was even hard to write that, since hell completely froze over😳

The weirdo will run what she runs in every other bike she owns. Mobil 1 15/50. 😂

She put 78 miles on a Malibu rock store ride with the boy on Thursday. She declares her broken in and time for a oil change.

Damn 15/50? You running boost or nitrous? You're riding a KTM now, you're going to need all the power you can get, 0/20 should help

She runs it in everything she owns. You'd figure she owns some stock in that there oil. Will Yamaha graphics give her any top end?

That might work, but this may work too....

Step 1 buy a rekluse auto transmission and LGBT left hand rear brake

Step 2 throw that trash in the garage can and ride a dirt bike like a real man!
