We Need A Good Ole Fashioned Oil Thread.

I prefer the kind that's made from dead dinosaurs and comes in a plastic bottle. What do you use?

I like it in gallon jugs, or even 5 qt containers.

I like Oil of Olay, it keeps my KLRs innards younger looking. :wink:

Oil? Oil in a KLR? :shock:

Don't even start this stuff. Been riding too long to worry about oil now. Come on guys. Besides if it needed oil it would have stopped running by now, right? As long as it runs why worry? I wouldn't even know where to put the oil in if I wanted too. Oil in a kLR..... :roll:

8) what next... huh?

Oil is kinda like beer. You don't buy it you just rent it and then get rid of it. Delo 400 buy the jug.

tomatocity is the only name that I recognize! Hi Tim.

Where did the rest of you disappear to? I love oil.
I wish my wife 'loved it', as much as I do!
