I've been trying 2 new oils this year with some pretty good results..

Once my stock of mineral is gone I will only be doing 15w 50 semi synthetic for day to day and 15w 50 fully synthetic for race use. Both are designed for 4 stroke motorcycle engines and wet clutches..

Anyone had the courage to try North Sea Lubricants yet? I could buy it and use it as a flushing oil :-)

I can't believe anyone is selling oil that cheap and making a living out of it!
