    viscosity index and chain tensioner issue

    I had a 1200cc Bandit some years ago and the automatic tensioner stuck and the spring pressure would not push it to the next tooth. I ended up giving it a push with my finger and all is well some 37,000 miles later.

    foaming oil?

    Just double check and make sure that it's not over full. If it is drain it until it is between the add and full marks. If it's not over full I wouldn't worry about it and ride.

    2011 Kawasaki Concours 14 Rotella T6

    My C-14 with 2K miles on it and about 1.5K on it's OCI is starting to have chunky shifting now with a quality 10W40 bike oil. I wrote it off as to that's the way Kawasakis shift, like a dump truck. Not really bad shifting but not the snic snic snic feel a Honda has.

    Amsoil shelf life

    Good to go! I buy Amsoil a few cases at a time, and all I do is give it a good shake before I pour it in. The only reason I shake it is just in case any additive has fallen out of suspension during storage.

    Motor oils as firearms lubes. . . .

    I have been using Amsoil Scooter oil on my Kahr's and 1911's for about a year now. So far I really like the way it works.

    If oil is changed only once a year...

    I have been doing annual oil changes for many years and do them in October. This has worked well for me for the past 12 to 13 years.

    Amsoil 10W40 Scooter Oil

    I plan on using this oil in a couple of generators, mowers and maybe my four wheeler. Looks like it might do the trick just fine.

    Polaris 0-40 options.

    Amsoil 0W40 ATV oil or their 10W40 Scooter/Motorcycle oil. Either of those should do the trick.

    Smallest .40 S&W???

    I have a couple of Kahr pistols and like them a lot. I have a P380 that is my daily carry and a CW45 the I sometimes take out on camping trips and 4 wheeler rides. Lately I have been carrying a Taurus 38 snub nose and it carries well.
