This is Mobil Delvac 1 with 4 ounces of Lube Control at the start, and with maybe .25 quarts of Rotella T synthetic as top up. This oil seemed to work great right up to the end, shifted nicer than an other oil I've tried. Lab is OAI.
code:Even the mighty Delvac 1 gets chewed down to a 30wt in a motorcycle. Frankly, as long as it feels good and protects well, I don't care if it shears down a grade. I've even been toying with the idea of running GC when it gets cooler! Currently I am running the new Amsoil 10W-40 motorcycle oil which I plan to sample at 700 miles and 1500 miles.Miles on unit 34544 Miles on Oil 1579 Iron 18 Chromium 1 Lead 1 Copper 6 Tin 0 Aluminum 11 Nickel 0 Silver 0 Silicon 6 Boron 55 Sodium 5 Magnesium 468 Calcium 2375 Barium 0 Phosphorus 1163 Zinc 1400 Molybdenum 0 Titanium 0 Vanadium 0 Potassium 0 Fuel <1 [email protected] 11.72 Water 0 Glycol NEG TBN 8.92 Oxid 3.0 Nitr 7.0
