... the XR is the greatest off road motorcycle ever constructed. There's nothing it can't do, hasn't won or will not outperform.

Castrol GPS 10W-40. Supposedly that's all it's been run on.
I notice they have changed their recipe lately tho, different bottle than what the PO had..
Oil brands could be a can of worms, but I'd still like to hear what other people are using..

Been running BelRay Thumper oil in the XR mainly because It's readily available and has worked OK to date
Subject has been covered at length in this or the other XR650 thread, mineral vs synthetic vs blend vs reconstituted Yak bile etc etc lots of opinions like what's the best tyre etc
I'm not a fan of swapping oil types and select one type and stick with it.
Ready supply has been an issue in the past, also the type of conditions, your in the mallee so I'm guessing fairly flat and hot at times
Check the OEM spec for your temp range and go from there

Sean-0, mine is out of rego currently so wouldn't have been me.

Plus I have a white Safari tank on mine, I have seen a standard getting around lately though.

I'm out towards Humpty Doo, dont venture into town all that often.

Should have rego by end of next week, if Honda decide to order the front pads for me.
Supposed to have been here today....NT- Not Today, Not Tomorrow, Not Tuesday, Not Thursday..........


Need to bring your bike here, some great places to go up here.

Doubt we'd be able to get to Dundee shortly, we're going to cop some decent rain over the next few weeks.

Sure is, we've got some decent rain on its way.

Been pretty hot the last couple of weeks, more humid than anything.

Doesn't make for fun riding, no escape from the heat when you're out in the boony's.
