I couldn't help it, I responded to him too.

My GSX1100G is especially touchy on the oil it tolerates. This shows up in how easily the tranny shifts. I used Mobil1 for years because it gave the best tranny performance. It'd go 4-5K with smooth shifting. However recently the cost of Mobil1 went from $4 per quart to $7.50 for the 15-40. I went to RotellaT and the bike shifts just fine for the 3-4K I go between changes.



So, if you're worried about seal problems (no comments about blown seals, fur seals or harp seals please) go with RotellaT. $9.97 a gallon at Autozone.

You know. it's really past time that the stupid moderating function got disabled. Some @sshole has been moderating all over the place the past week or so. If someone doesn't have to balls to state directly what his disagreement is then the coward should just go and f*ck himself.

I run it in my '76 CB750F. No problems, no new oil leaks. Clutch seems quieter.



Good stuff as far as I'm concerned and it's pretty cheap too.

Actually, I know you're not joking, and I'm really impressed that you would know that. It's just kinda scary to think about is all.

WTF, no laptops? It's not like it's rehab for your painkiller addiction. One Berghoff Hefeweisen raised, as of now. Good luck and let us know when you're back.

I hear the whole shebang is about to change in the next few weeks. Say goodbye to MO as you know it.



And where our friend is concerned, that's a good thing.
