Oh,and watch stainless reusable oil filters. No first hand experience,but it's said they let smaller particles through that OEM or paper filers would catch. I opted not to use one on my Dr due to this. I haven't did testing,or haven't seen first hand accounts of damage due to one, so pass your own judgment on them.

Thanks, Dan. I already wrote off the stainless filters a long time ago. Seems good in theory, probably not worth the hassle.

Decided to get a new air filter today also as well as a new front tire.

My oil experience on my quad, when I got it it had dino in it even though it was hopped up for racing. When I was racing GNCC with it,I ran Mobil1 synthetic, now that I use it to putt around the house, I went back to dino.I usually buy what ever is on sale at the dealer when I get a filter.I haven't noticed any difference one way or the other.I just felt better spending the extra money when racing.

Hey Meef, thats a good looking ride you have there, right make too. I had wanted a white Tiger, but Hardings couldn't get me one in a reseasonable amount of time and everyone else wanted TOO much foe theirs.

Got a Commando phone and Page Plus, it's driving me frigging nuts, but I'll learn it, wifes on Page Plus also, time will tell.

Thanks for the advise,

Dave

Thanks.

Yeah, there is a learning curve. You'll be a pro in no time.

Nowdays, both contain detergents,as well as your fuel to keep the crud out. Even more not a single natural oil is 100% natural anymore,it's all recycled base oil with natural and synthetic being different blends,synth having almost no new oil and typically higher in detergents.

As far as what to put in.. anything with a motorcycle specific spec will do, try as close as possible for weight ratings,and avoid anything car specific stating that it has friction reducing additives due to nearly all mc's having a wet sump clutch that shares motor oil. I use shell rotella t. It's a great multipurpose oil. Diesels,cars,bikes,mowers,you name it,it'll work in it.
Rotella T6 sythetic. 15-20$ for 4 quarts at walmart. I use it in both of my wet clutch bikes, and my cars now. Me loves it. It works and is largely the favorite of almost every bike forum.

the app, tapatalk, will likely help you a lot on that phone, especially with the slower connection speed and screen size.

Been using the Rotella diesel synthetic and diesel dino on my bikes, I remembered reading where the diesel oils don't have the crap in them that causes clutch slipping that motorcycles hate. Been working for me for the past 4 or 5 years.
