    SAE70 is 0W-70, apparently.

    if you have never poured sae60...dont even consider sae70. ive tested sae60 and that stuff was very slow to pour at 90F ambient. i would not recommend 60w for anything less than 85F ambient. for sae70 i would say 90F minimum. yes it will stay on the cam lobes between rides, but getting it up...

    Jenson rule #1 about blackstoner reports is that you dont listen to blackstoners reports! rule #2 is that you dont do a uoa on the 1st oci of a new motor. rule #3 or the 2nd or possibly even the 3rd (depending on miles when done) now the good things: so glad you did the oci at 400ish miles...
