Mr.RC45 has over 57K miles and those are miles not in moderation either... since 98 I've been running Mobil 1 10W30 Energy Conserving oil 365 days a year and just before my annual pilgrimage to MotoGp at Laguna Seca in July during the heat of the summer I switched over to Mobil 1 0W 30... as soon as I can afford a ticket I'll get back in the saddle...
That is the "old" API SM M1 0w30. It will be interesting to see how the new formula holds up in your engine. I am sure it will be fine. Extend those drains!
that iron of 11 could be high, depends on how much he is hammering the right wrist. silver of 3? really stoners? next uoa they will show gold of 4 and uranium of 5 laugh at the lower end of 30wt. seems to thrash it pretty good. flash of 380 is very low. for just a TRACE of fuel. steve

Yes the iron is high for 700 miles in a road Motorcycle and so is the aluminum, and its because of the thin weight. Just imagine how bad utilizing a typical oil change of 2500 miles, would be 3 to 4 times as much. Plus the flash point is very low. I dont see the point in running this Light weight oil, longevity wise.
