ok so i searched around and im still lost. Lots of people seemed to like the rotella? Did people start having problems? How much is the Golden Spectro? I just want a good cost effective oil. Would M1 be better?
I see there was some concern about the Golden Spectro breaking down fast is this true? Id like to not be doing oil changes every 500miles. Is there any oil that everyone can kind of agree on even if its not their favorite?
Well i picked up the M1 and im going to put it in tomorrow. I also found a few quarts of Royal Purple 20/50 synthetic left over from the last time I did the oil in the P-Car. Anyone ever use that in their bike?
I ran Castrol Actevo 4T 20w50 for the first 2 oil changes. It was the best the local bike shops sell. I was not happy with the way it shifted in 100*+ tempatures. After a local search for any 10w60, I found Motorex 4T 10w60 full synthetic for $10/liter (case price) on E-bay. I put the 10w60 in with that bike still hot and it was MUCH quieter than with the 20w50. Considering the price I will leave the Motoex in for at least 1,000 miles.
With the the "correct" weight oil I bet my cam chain will last for ever.:lol:
