Re: Best oil?
I've been using AMSOIL 10-40 cycle oil. A service manager I know said don't use synthetic oils in a 929. Well, I did. I don't know if this is a factor in my clutch going south at 30,000 miles or not. I don't abuse the bike, try to ride smooth but do spend a good deal of time in the powerband on the twisties.
The Little Woman's F4i has slightly less mileage. Clutch is fine. She rides a bit easier than I do and has always used GN4.
The new clutch guts are going in this week (along with an Ohlins shock..drool) and then back on the road. Whoopee!!
I think I'll use dino juice. I've heard good things about Bardahl.
