Why is it people over the internet think they can get away with the retarded shit they try to spew on their friends. Facts rules the internet gentleman. What ever bullshit you try to pull over your buddies eyes isn't gonna fly in the kingdom of facts and google.com.

Try to at least do some research instead of "asking my friend who has xyz certification" or "some marketing company said to use xyz because they sell it for profit...."

Buy the oil you like so much and then buy some rotella or what ever. Then send them off both brand new to get tested at a lab. Then use both and when you're done with it send the used oil off to get tested too. Let us know the difference from the lab. You know the LAB, not bob who smells the oil and says it's better because it's got the repsol label on it down at your bike shop.

The additives are listed on the label and at request from the oil manufacturers. Most motorcycle oil DOES NOT have friction modifier that is in "GEAR OIL" designed for transmissions and rear ends. That argument is completely MUTE. I'm surprised no one has suggested using tranny oil in their bike yet, I mean shit it's better then car oil and twice the price!.. love that logic.
Ahh what the hell, it's an old thread but I have to point out that it's a MOOT point. Not mute.

moot point A debatable question, an issue open to argument; also, an irrelevant question, a matter of no importance. For example, Whether Shakespeare actually wrote the poem remains a moot point among critics, or It's a moot point whether the chicken or the egg came first. This term originated in British law where it described a point for discussion in a moot, or assembly, of law students. By the early 1700s it was being used more loosely in the present sense.

No no. I like mute better. It's better if they are mute.

Re: Car to motorcycle oil filters conversion

lmao at the geniuses here. Yall should have been engineers instead of grocery baggers!

Guy just got his motor claim denied because he wasn't using "motorcycle oil" and he was using an automotive filter too!

That sucks! Oh well. Guess he'll be on ebay buying a used motor for his 2011 r6!

"guy" was real descriptive. I'd like to see where it states in your warranty info that you must use a certain type of filter or oil that they can deny service. If someone wants to roll over and take it in the ass from ANY company that wants to deny a large ticket warranty (which most do to get dumbasses to stop trying) then that's their issue. I'd be on the phone real quick with a lawyer though.

Re: Car to motorcycle oil filters conversion

Friction modifiers do not wear out the clutch so much as make them slip like a bitch as well as the starter clutch if that is "wet" as well. I used some top of the line Redline oil in one of my bikes and the stuff was so slippery that the starter would not engage.
