I did have one clutch problem that seems to have been resolved by changing oil type: I have a Barnett in an old XL500, and if left sitting very long it would stick so hard I couldn't disengage it. I had been using automotive racing oil, but when motorcycle specific oil became widely available, I switched to that, and the problem went away.

Saw this thread and thought I would ask the questions here as many have used different types & weights of oil.

Oil consumption

I took the 950SE for a run on some challenging trails last weekend, doing about 74km in total of only 1st, 2nd, & 3rd gear riding. I notice after the ride that it used quite a bit of oil, nearly to the half way mark of the oil sight window. Is this normal? Do the LC8 engines chew oil when the going get tough? The oil in it at the moment is the recommended Motul oil. I am thinking maybe the oil is too thin for the hotter Australian climate and the engine would benefit from a heavier weight oil. Has anyone else come across this situation?

I fly jets for a living since 1974...every single one of them was serviced exclusively with synthetic oil.
Granted my vehicles do not operate in the extreme ranges of jet engines, but if synthetic is the only thing good enough for a jet engine, it is the only thing good enough for my vehicle engines

This is why I run 15/50 organic oil. I buy it in bulk 20Lt drums @ $65 AU. My bike does not use a drop of oil. There is to much propaganda about oil designed to take money out of your pockets.

I agree that we are driven by marketing but I disagree that every oil is the same......

Will the engine work with any oil? yes, but remember there is a clutch in there sharing the same oil. Is it optimum, No - wear may not be noticeable rigth away but sooner or later it will.

An 8 cyl. Ford engine is different than a 8 Cyl. F1 - Do they use the same oil?

why ride a 990 instead of a KLR... after all they are bikes! is the difference propaganda?

Not even people have the same oil (blood) - you can notice that on hot places its thinner and people on cold places have thicker blood. its true

Please don't miss-quote me. I have never said that.

This is the oil I have used after break in, before that I used running in oil and change oil at 30km, 60km, 120km, 200km (15/50), 500km, 1000km, then 5, 10, 15, 2000km and so on

Sorry mate, I assumed that "There is to much propaganda about oil designed to take money out of your pockets." & "Organic Oil" meant any oil is same.

BTW is organic oil same as mineral?

Now this is more confusing.... you changed oil 5 times before 1000Km mark? .... And I thought DockingPilot was the oil change freak in here!
I'm lost on the 5, 10, 15

What brand & weight of oil are you using?

I have read that synthetic oil works best for engines that have a separate sump & gearbox. The dino oil works best with wet clutches.
