Is FAILURE to use the MOST PERFECT OIL known to mankind for the KLR (some say, Kawasaki oil; others, AMSOIL, etc.) COMMITTING the UNFORGIVABLE SIN of . . . ENGINE ABUSE?????????????
What are the MAINTENANCE CONSEQUENCES of feeding a KLR less-than-the best LUBRICANT? For example, how many miles and operational hours are SACRIFICED for the cruel and insensitive act of NOT using the ONE PERFECT OIL in a KLR?
Would a FRIENDLY, and PERSONAL, analysis by the convivial Blackstone analysts answer the question?
Motor oil, even "SYNTHETIC" ones, depend on (dare I use the term?) FOSSIL FUELS (whose use dooms the planet earth to total extinction in 10-12 years). So . . . why should motorcyclists be complicit in DESTROYING THE PLANET? (How do synthetic lubricants use fossil fuels? First, petroleum is the base for many so-called "synthetics." Otherwise, the refining and chemical processes necessary use POWER produced from the dreaded and deadly fossil fuels (oil, coal, natural gas) in the manufacturing process.)
Alternative (or, how to save the world to the satisfaction of concerned "environmentalists"): Use WHALE OIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Whale oil possesses unique characteristics; long used, for example, by watchmakers. Why not bottle the lubricant and sell it to motorcyclists? Absolutely, ZERO "carbon footprint," the lethal umbra covering our present-day energy practices. No subsidy to the evil fossil fuel industry if this "green," natural lubricant is used.
But, you ask . . . what about the propulsion systems of the SHIPS used to harvest the whales? Oil- or coal-fired vessels remain complicit in their pollution processes; "green" folk run, screaming, from the thought of nuclear power in any form . . . THUS, we shall return to the use of WIND POWER; only sailing ships shall be used to hunt and transport whales used for fuel and lubricant purposes. (If heat is necessary for producing whale oil yield, previously-refined whale oil will be used as a heat source for this purpose.)
Why wind-powered sailing ships? Because the TRAINS, replacing internal-combustion engine-powered conveyances and all airplanes, cannot maneuver successfully about the ocean wide, where whales are found; sea winds have no carbon footprint.
I await meticulous Blackstone analyses of whale oil samples submitted from KLR use (special interest in krill content).
EDIT: Another advantage of whale oil: A RENEWABLE resource (unlike depletable fossil fuels). Through animal husbandry, "herds" of whales can be managed not unlike cattle herds today. WAIT! Bad example. I forgot: We shall have no cattle in the brave, new GREEN world of our future! Maybe, domesticated whales, as in contemporary farm-raised salmon enterprises?
