I did, and as mentioned more that once, purely as a joke.. If you actually read the post, you'd know that by now.So whoever said synthetic is for fags really ought to do his homework better,
I USED to use synthetic oil in my crankcase on my BMW's, but because it managed to creep into my dry clutch housing and contaminate my dry clutch, I quit using it.
Again, this was a dry clutch application on a BMW motorcycle, and the Synth oil creeped into the dry clutch area and contaminated the plate, causing slippage..
I'm much more concerned about keeping my oil clean than how long it'll last, so I use dino oil and change more often.. At less than $2 per filter and less than $6 for all the oil needed, I'll gladly change every 2000 miles. Since I do my own service work I'm not interested in saving costs for service..
And if someone wants to bring up the GREEN issues about not changing oil so soon, just remember that a gas guzzling full size pickup with 4 people in it gets better gas mileage than 4 people riding their own motorcycles at the same time, so if you want to be GREEN, you should car pool and sell your motorcycles..
There.. That should be plenty of fodder for a REAL oil thread argument..:character00271:
