For the Oil Crazed

Here is the article that I use to theorize the oil consumption of my KLR. Again, at 1000-1200 miles, the oil use has picked up. This time I am using 10W/40 Mobil 1 MX4T. Last time was same in 20W50 that lasted about 1500 miles before consumption increased.

http://motorcycleinfo.calsci.com/Oils1.html

"In 1994, Dr. John Woolum tested the viscosity of several 10w-40 oils in his motorcycle. He found that all of the petroleum oils had lost highly significant amounts of viscosity within 1500 miles. Only Mobil-1 held up in his test. I have personally tested Delvac-1 synthetic in my ST1300. It was 5w-40 when I put it in, and 5w-25 9,200 miles later. By 1500 miles, the petroleum oils Dr. Woolum tested were at 10w-25 equivalent. By contrast, Dr. Woolum tested a petroleum oil in his Honda Accord. After 3600 miles, the 10w-40 oil was 10w-37 equivalent. Motorcycles are indeed significantly harder on their oils than cars. Based on this result and the VI numbers above, it would seem that 10w-40, 5w-20, and 5w-30 oils cannot be safely used in motorcycles for more than 1,000 to 1,500 miles."

On the RDV trip, Supadud showed his jealousy of the infamous Trophy. He would tell a joke and no one would laugh. Finally he said, "Screw y'all!! No one laughs at my jokes but Trophy can post a smiled face and y'all go crazy!!!!"

So at random times, instead of telling a joke, we would just say "Trophy just posted a smilies." And everyone would laugh and laugh... well, except SupahComedian...

Cheese puff here. My trip has been a lot of fun! I only got a couple of days of fun mountain riding; my in laws were already in Wilmington at the beginning of the week, so I headed on over there. I did ride down the coast one day and ferried out to Bald Head island.

I'm in Macon tonight and will be home tomorrow. The flat, straight roads aren't much fun to ride on and it's hard to not get a ticket; thought I was gonna get another ticket today but the man had just clocked a car in front of me when he hit the median. Whew.

Thanks for asking Anti.

How's the foot DQ?
