10/60 oil?


Recommended Posts

Yep a Motul 5100 semi synthetic say 10 50 is what I use. Bel ra etc are good mid priced oils. Motorex is stupidly priced. Some of our American mates buy diesel oil with no ill effect-Rotella. I don't see in here in Oz. It is considerably cheaper and apparently does the job on lubing the gearbox and engine with out ill effexts/slippage on the clutch. Just use a good oil and change it regularly. I do it after 3-4 rides and change out the oil filter ever second oil change.

Redline oil has a 10/60, not sure if you can get it in England...http://www.redlineoil.com/product.aspx?pid=130&pcid=21

I couldn't say weather or not these bikes NEED 10w/60 but for the most part, I'd give the manual the benefit of the doubt. Especially since you have a pretty new model...no need to muck it up to save a few bucks. But hey, sometimes a buck is a buck right?
