Well I buy oil for mibe and my partners cars in bulk.
I want to run some 10w40 penrite oil which is jaso dh1 rated and a pretty good oil.
jesus christ.... there's neither bike picture on that oil sticker.... it's really necessary to avoid family bankrupt ? cmon.. Only Ebenizer likes that xD
Actully the penrite has got a bike decal on the sticker.
Will $10 of bike oil kill me no but if oil is suitable I maybas well use it.
If its "OK" or will get me out of a bind ill grab some proper stuff. Don't want to risk a engine.
But I'm aware as our bikes are oil cooled and the clutch is in the same oil its not quite as simple as that.
I ran Rotella solely in my DRZ400. The engine ran perfectly when I sold it. This video is after 13 years and 35,000+ completely trouble free miles.
2018 GROM: Modified for reliability longevity gas mileage... and fun.
I'm not going to run diesel oil in a motorcycle engine. Get motorcycle oil for your motorcycle.
Some people also recommend running ATF in your car instead of oil which you shouldn't do...
