:Bang

i just can't get it out of my head
here it's like 30c-35c HOT

1st, i really wanna get rid of using Mineral oil, they give me nothing then i want to forget what happened with Motul 300V 15w50 :mic
perhaps mechanic did something wrong
however i found a place, brings Motul and Mobil Stuff which is 30Kms away from my home.

i want to switch back to 10w40, they have Mobil and Motul
Mobil 10w40 Semi-Syn and Motul 10w40 Fully-Syn
they are very expensive but i wanna try them one more time.. perhaps Next weekend

Prices (1L)
Mobil 10w40 Semi- : 1300LKR
Motul 10w40 FS : 2300LKR
Motul 10w40 Racing : 2900LKR

let you know the real names later (like motul 7100, 5100 etc)

any word, advice WELCOME! :ahhdiddums

As long as it's motorcycle specific oil you should be all right. It's weird though because according to the oil table in the manual the 15W-50 should be fine for your temperatures.

Plan changed a bit, No 300V stock
paid advance, shop-owner who is a local motorbike racer/champion promised me to bring my stuff with in 2days

in fact he runs 300V in his Ducati 999, cbr600rr and cbr250rr gull-arm tracks, streets he says no problem
he asked me to bring my hornet to his garage and he'd change oil+filter himself for me :D
he says its THE Best oil ever used, he has experiences with castrol and mobil1 but this factory line thing with double easter tech. is something extraordinary and he guaranteed if something happened wrong he'd give my money back

im glad that i found someone really knows about bikes and oil :clap

update
i just changed oil today MYSELF :hat no more time to mistakes
let more than 1D to drain oil freely in fact i had no time to spend time with her
then spark plug cleaned, they were lil oily
fuel overflow line replaced with this, bit fancy though :lol
Image
and carb overflow lines too

fuel filter removed, i think that fuel filter didn't supply fuel to carbs as they needed. perhaps that's why she ran like out of fuel?!

airfilter cleaned

new filter and Motul 300V 10w40 2.4L now inside

i had a little ride after like 10Kms, really didn't want to speed her up. it was around 50-60Kms
all i noticed that gear shifting is sweet and smooth
i can go back to neutral gear without stopping the engine, with motul 3000 4T that was impossible
let's see what's next


p.s. oh i found some braided lines for fuel lines,still looking for radiator lines
fuel lines costs 2FT = 3$ :clap

Lol, well at least you see that you have a fuel overflow hose now :D.

Seems like you went for 10W40 motorcycle specific. Should be perfect.

The gear problems you describe are common for people who aren't using motorcycle specific oils.

Costs just over $100 for that Motul oil here in Australia (4L), might look into it. Either that or I may try Ipone since a store is selling 5L bottles for $50.
