  • Mobil 1 v-twin 20-50 full syn Ride Safe Doug


    Yes

    Best thing going atm







    Snake,I would not recommend using syn in your 1100...it does not mix well with the old gaskets and seals,I think you would have a lot of small oil leaks develope,cam chain adjuster and cam seals on the right side of engine...stick with the Dino oil for an older bike.

    I value your opinion.

    The Snake has his methods, and does not recommend you do what he does.

    Oil does not come from Dinosaurs  ;-)

  • Been giving this some thought,riding a 30 year old bike, I have been working on the carbs,cam chain and coils the past few weeks and it is running really great right now,put 10w30 Castrol oil in it,and the energy conserving emblem on it,hit 6 grand and the clutch would slip,original clutch.Changed the oil to 20w50 Advance oil,the cheap stuff withOUT the energy conserving label on it and I now run up to 8500 without any slippage soo I am thinking in the older engines you are better off without the slippery newer type oils...just my experience from the past month.
