! No longer available

My family lived on about 10e per month during the embargo in my country.

My first pay was about 200 e per month.

But my logic is - if I can't afford fuel, oil, or tyres - I can't afford the vehicle. Never found logic, or economy on skimping on oil/maintenance.

C'mon chaps, don't let it this thread die, we've only got three pages of yes or no for running car oil in bikes. Lets have some more "viscosity facts & figures" & more, "when i were a lad i used to run me GS850 on our old fellas old cortina oil & it were better for it" C'MON, we want at least four pages.  :deal :wall :lol

All oils are not equal, even good stuff.  When my bro was racing his yzf750 it kept doing crank shells.  He was recommended motul 300v as it was developed with that motor iirc.  He had zero issues after changing.   I can't recall what he was using previously, silkolene pro 4 or rock oils race oil. Same grade etc.

But did she want 710 semi synthetic or fully synthetic and how often was she changing the oil?


She probably used to buy it from here http://www.silkoleneoil.com/store/index.php?

As we we are talking about oil what fuel are we using? Supper market fuel? Is it as bad as some say or is the shell super magic stuff worth  the extra money? Just asking
