"there is a large push in the industry, especially in Europe, for sealed-for-life charges in the sump" I read this today on BITOG in the Question for the day forum. It was under "Higher Viscosity=Better Hydrodynamic Film" then to XS650's "Chew on this Awhile" and then down to the forth paragraph from the last (I tried to paste it here but couldn't. Maybe someone could paste it for me.) I thought my head might explode. Trying to keep us from changing oil would be like tryuing to take away our guns. It just won't happen. Anyone else have thoughts on this?
