IIRC once you go synthetic you have to continue with synthetic, no?
If you ride very little and own a new bike, you don't need the expensive stuff...but if you have a older bike and you ride everydayKnightslugger said:
that doesn't answer the question. What is an expensive synthetic oil going to do to an old motorcycle engine that it wouldn't do to a new one and vice versa?hollywood said:If you ride very little and own a new bike, you don't need the expensive stuff...but if you have a older bike and you ride everydayKnightslugger said:
in bad traffic, I would advise the more expensive sysnthetic oil...
A magnetic drain plug wouldn't help with clutch junk, but would catch other iron bits that may come off during the course of the engine's life, however the oil filter, one of high quality, would catch most of it anyway. but yes they are available.Manson.V said:In regards to the "clutch junk", would a magnetic drain plug be advantageous, and is one available?
