Interesting oil filter and oil articles

  1. I think change your oil regularly with a stock filter and its not an issue.

  2. I use Mobil 1 or Royal Purple synthetic oil in all my broken in vehicles, and Mobil 1 or K & N oil filters. Both brands of filters are well-designed and have properly constructed bypass valves, which is very important. It's also very important to regularly change your filter and oil when the bike is hot, to avoid low oil pressure and or/activation of the bypass valve due to accumulated junk.

    Never use synthetic oil in a new engine.. use standard oil for at least the first 4,000 miles, to allow break-in. Why risk your rings and such not seating?

    Also never use "racing oil" unless it's specifically rated for street use with the proper additives/detergents. Racing oil is for one race and then it's dumped/changed.
