What oil are you using?

Brand and weight? And do you use a different weight between winter and summer or the same?

To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.

They do have a motorcycle version but the car version has served me just fine, plus its cheaper.

I use Mobil 1. When I tried the 15w-50 the bike felt down on power, so now I use 10w-30 or 10w-40.

I always ran 15w-50 Red Cap in my R1. Be careful when running automotive oils, though as most popular weights, 10w-30, 5w-30, etc, are generally Energy Conserving, which means the oil has friction modifiers that will make your clutch slip.

*you can tell, because on the back of the bottle, in the seal looking circle, it will say EC, if it's not, then it will say some other b.s.*

They no longer have the red cap. It has changed to a gold cap and that's the kind I use. I am using the 15w-50. It went up a little in price, but still the best [email protected] oil you can find IMO.

Any larger pictures of the bike?

I to have been trying to get a hold of you. I was actually at your shop back in May (bought something from the store next door) and walked all the way in through the back door and didn't see anybody so I left.

Anyway, I'm looking to get something done as well. What's the best way to get a hold of you?
