oil question

Recommended Posts

I just bought my bike about 3 weeks ago. I have a box of stuff to do to it, de-smog, uncork and change the oil.

Is it ok to use mobile 1, 10w-40 motorcycle oil in the thing?

Yes. If your ambient temperatures don't get high.

I use it in winter here. Teens to 20's is winter riding for me. Colder than that I won't ride.

20w-50 in summer, it gets over 100 here.

Stay away from any "Energy Conserving" oils.

I thought you used dino oil, Rich?

Anyhow....yes, use the heavier weight oil in the summer. I use Mobil 1 also - 20w-50. A lot of people say that the Amsoil is better, but I'm really happy with the Mobil 1. 🙂

I must have misread something 🙂
