Oil Questions

I know this has been asked but I am going to be more specific. I have had really good luck with Liqui-Moly oil in my high rpm applications on my euro cars. I know they make a motorbike specific oil in 5-40 up to 15-50. What weight oil would you guys run in a 20k mile bike that has had all maintenance done? Thx

Just make sure that the oil doesn't actually contain moly (bdenum). Bad for your clutch. Just check the back to make sure that it is not energy conserving

Will do. BMW loves this oil but it may not be good for a ricer, I will check on it.

Well I studied more and found that there are a lot of good oils now for wet clutch aystems. The liqui moly is one of them as their moto line is not energy saving and does not have moly in it. Since I cant run the moly version I will prob look at different oils because I love that stuff. May try some Max Syn in 10 40 and see how it feels. I will also go with a hff filter as they seem to still be the goto and I ran them back in the day and they were always excellent.
