    Default Oil again Sorry.

    Short question .Has anyone notice a different in mecanical noise between Ordinary 20-50 and Syntetic 20-50 oil?

    i Use ordinary right now and you can not hear any noise from valvetrain when the engine is cold ,but at hot engine it sounds like a heavy mecanical workshop from valves. Will it be less noicy with Syntetic?

    The test of the motorcycle is the satisfaction it gives you. There isn't any other test. If the motorcycle produces tranquility it's right. If it disturbs you it's wrong, until either the motorcycle or your mind is changed.
