    Recommend a thick 10w-30

    You’re correct. Slight dilution, but nothing scary. Redline I would need to order, and prefer something I can just find at a local store. The people I race with, have recommend diesel oils. Not sure I feel comfortable with that.

    Recommend a thick 10w-30

    My engine calls for 10w-30, and that’s all I use. It is a turbocharged performance car from the 90s, with no emissions. Mainly an auto cross toy, but I do drive it to events. So I have never looked at actual racing oils. I’ve just used Mobil 1 synthetic 10w-30. It shears out of the 30 weight...

    High zinc 10W-30

    It's been awhile since I've needed an oil with higher zinc, so not sure where to turn as formulations seem to change all the time. Not looking for a racing oil, as they seem to have no detergents, and need very frequent changing per my analysis in the past. Looking for a simple off the shelf...

    Royal enfield interceptor 650 oil choice

    The 20W-to V Twin Mobil 1 has been holding up great! It will be changed out once the weather starts to get a bit cooler though.

    Royal enfield interceptor 650 oil choice

    I went with the Mobil 1 v twin 20w-50. Shifting is back to being as slick as ever. Curious to see how it holds up!

    Royal enfield interceptor 650 oil choice

    <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted by Bonz</div><div class="ubbcode-body">I think most oil manufacturers have a grasp on high temperature issues, LOL. Check to be sure the clutch is fully disengaging when you shift. You would notice that more on downshifts...

    <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted by CT8</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Why would the M1 be too thick? </div></div> It calls for 10w-50.

    Royal enfield interceptor 650 oil choice

    I have a 2020 Royal enfield interceptor 650, and interested in some options on oil. I've owned a good number of bikes, mostly high dollar sport bike stuff. This enfield has the nicest shifting transmission I've ever felt, up until I reach 300-500 miles, and it starts to feel not as good...

    3.2 V6 Cayenne oil help

    <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted by Zolton</div><div class="ubbcode-body">VR6 is tough on oil, but not picky. If climate allows, just use HD oil like Rotella or Delo, a 10w-30 maybe mixed with 15w-40. Change it out frequently until you need a winter oil...

    3.2 V6 Cayenne oil help

    2007 cayenne 3.2, I had it serviced when under warranty at the dealer and at random places since. Always full synthetic, Changed at 5-6k intervals, but who knows which weights were used. I think it calls for either a 0w-40 or 5w-30. Little under 200k miles, and still running great. Peeking in...

    Ktm 690 Suggested Oil

    When I bought this new many years ago, I was told the engine needs the special "motorex" as it's designed for the motor. Something about silver bearings similar to a diesel truck of marine engines, and some other oils might eat away at this coating... No clue if that's true, but sick of paying...

    <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted by Chris142</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Wonder why they want such a big range? That 10w60 is likely a 10w40 after just a few hundred miles. Maybe a 20w50 would work better?</div></div> I'm not sure, but it shears badly...

    Ktm 690 Suggested Oil

    I have a 2013 or 2014 KTM 690 duke, not exactly sure what year off the top of my head! Bought it new, and have only used the factory recommended motorex 10w-60 with short 1,000-1,500 mile intervals. Not impressed with this expensive oil, and looking to make a switch. Looked at various 690...
