Yes, actually, I do.DynoBobSlick said:
I do also, in fact I feel my 1100 runs better, shifts better, and no lifter noise to speak of. I used Mobil I for about 8 or 9,000 miles and sorry I wasted my money. I went to Rotella as a storage oil for the winter thinking to drain and refill with Mobile come Spring. I thought I would leave in for a few miles since it was fresh oil. Been with Rotella ever since. :wink:commanche said:as mark said..i use rotella 15-40 dino oil in my spirit 1100..i use st 7317 oil filter..
Mark,MarkC said:Now I'm pretty sure that Litnin uses Kendell in the race car that he helps build and maintain, but I stated it as not a good choice because of some testimonies about plugged up oil drain holes in engine heads that had to be knocked out with a metal rod.
This is another thing that I don't agree with.MarkC said:I sometimes get emails from people on the forum and from my web page about oil (wonder why?) And this person was talking about having his automobile engine completely rebuild. He was going on about it was using about a quart of oil every 1,000 to 1,500 miles and wanted to know if he should make the builders fix the problem or at lest look into it more. Long story short!
Golden Spectro is one oil that I've never heard many bad reports aboout. I've not used their oils for a number of years, but at one time I've emptied a few bottles in Motorcross bikes. Golden Spectro I was thinking has a line of oils of both crude (type-o ) and synthetic (or they use to) I'd say the biggest problem with the Golden Spectro products is PRICE! and availability. About the only places I know that you can buy it is motorcycle shops and in them its on their "premium" motorcycle specific oil shelf.trjam said:But if I am correct Mark, Spectro Golden 4 you gave a thumbs up to, didnt you. I know, I know, this reply defeats subject title.
