What type of oil for my dommie?
I have been reading through some of the previous posts, and i was interested about the engine life of the dommie, and the type of oil to use.
Its seems that a lot of people reckon that the top ends go at 50,000 miles or so. Does using a different kind of oil prevent this?
My 91 dommie is on about 35,000 miles, and i change the oil / filter every 2-3,000 miles. (Runs fine at the moment) I have been concerned about the engine going in the near future, as everyone reckons they wear out. What kind of oil do people use then? synthetic / semi / car oil? I never bother with motorcycle oil, as it seems to be overpriced car stuff. Putting 10w 40 Mobil in my dommie has worked fine ever since i have had it.
I would be v.interested to hear any views on this.
