So why does Kawasaki market their OWN Kawachem 100% Synthetic High-Performance Motor Oil (which I use exclusively)?sczx10r said:
As a general statement, that's hogwash. I have been using Mobil 1 "car" synthetic oil in my bikes for years, and that includes street bikes and race bikes. Clutch life has been normal. Yes, I have had to replace clutches ... but the original clutch in my '94 ZX9R lasted until 105,000 km before it started slipping, and that clutch did see the occasional hard launch, wheelie, or burnout, so I'd say that was quite normal and nothing to complain about.sczx10r said:
fair enough.. i too run synthetic and agree with you.zx9rmal said:I DO, however, believe in using full synthetic oil. There's no question that it's better (especially for me in S. Florida), and for the number oil changes I do in a year, the $$ difference isn't very much.
