I have looked at the Penrite site and have been impressed with them. Their oils are really good because they run in the top of the range for weight specific classes. I would try them if shops here carried it.

Not all car oils have friction modifiers in them, but those that do _will_ cause the clutch to spin freely, guaranteed.
Some motorcycle clutches don't get along with motorcycle-specific full-synthetics either.

The brand doesn't matter, what matters is that it is replaced regularly.
The weight is specific to your local environment, but generally a 10W40.

Re: High milage blades

10W40 semi is what is required, a good quality one and regular changes help further.

Ive decided to keep her. cos i know how clean she is but the front forks and rear shock could do with a revamp. So if anybody in England knows of a gd suspension reconditioners let me know. Thanks

Re: High milage blades

That thing looks brilliantly clean. I would go for it. I know theres more to that but if it starts, why not?

Re: High milage blades

I'd consider it. It looks very clean from the pictures, but it needs to check out under the fairings. Lots of tell-tale signs under the skins. If it ran strong, seemed healthy, and the price were right, I'd snap it up. It's a great looking bike. Good work on keeping it looking that good.
