2008 Oil/Filter Change - what oil?
Bike is in for its first service (along with the repaires from dropping it..)
Going to change oil and filter at 500km and again in 2 weeks, as on the 22nd I'm off for a long ride 700+km....
Anyway, the garage phone me to tell me the service manual states 10-30w however due to the current climate they only have(and use) 10-40w. And it could be a while until they get some in. Not to worry I thought. Off to the UK today, so I'll grab 4ltrs and bring it back with me... now...
Looked at Mobil, Castrol and Shell Oils and too be honest (to me) it seems only Shell do a range from Mineral > Semi > Fully Sync oils? But none in 10-30w?
I have no idea what oil the blade comes with - the garage says it comes pre-oiled from the factory - any idea if its mineral or semi off the production line?
Any of you UK based 08' bladers - what do you use?

Reason: spelling of 'Castrol'
