My 09 is now 100% synthetic.Changed oil 2 weeks ago and noticed right away that the tappet noise is almost non existent(checked clearances a week previous and were within specs)
Went for my first ride of the season tonight and the shifting was unbelievably smooth.I first thought full synthetic was over kill but with the improvements I've noticed so far I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Just wanted to pass on my thoughts.(Now if I could only find a Stearns seat cover in Canada)
The wife and I are heading to Windsor Ont next month so I was thinking to scoot across the border to Detroit and see if I could pick one up there.
Yeah I use synthetic Lucas oil in my bikes and shifting smoothness was the most obvious improvement after going to that. Also notice the oil looks cleaner for a longer period in the site gauge.
What weight do you use, is there a specific lucas oil for bikes?
Depends on the bike, and I always use the recommended weight in the manuals depending on time of year (temps) and yes Lucas main focus is motorcycles.
Which windshield are you using and where did you get it? Thanks
