    I'm just going to start a new threat as when I do a search for types of oil it says its to short or to common.
    So what type of oil do you run, 10w-40, 15w-50, 20w-50 and do you notice better gear shifting.

    I'm on my first fill of Penrite 15/40 semi synthetic. I gave this a go because it was one of a few that mentioned suitable for a wet clutch system. Rode throughout the national meet in Albury without any problems. Will use again.

    By the way Hulk, we are distracting RR71 from his original enquiry.
    Sorry RR71, just a little banter here.
