G'day from OZ

Post  wassie on Sun Jul 26, 2015 1:13 am

Hello all, Just purchased a 2001 BRP but haven't got it home yet, it's 300klms away. A very clean example, low klms, one owner and only after market bits are handle bars and barkbusters. looking forward to polishing it and give it a service. Do all the fluids, filters new tyres ( still has original tyre) grease the swing arm pivot and have a roadworthy done, get it registered.

'Brisbane colonies'...... that's Oz innit?
Funny, the rest of the world is in the (mis?)understanding that that entire continent is a colony!

engine oil

Post  temporary kiwi on Wed Oct 14, 2015 12:49 pm

hi, welcome to the forum, just a question regards the engine oil you listed as the one your planning on using or are using?, castrol 10w 60, is that a m/c type of castrols range or just their car type?, some car type oils will cause clutch failure as theyre not intended for wet clutches on m/c's, some car oils are fine to use , some not , hope its all good

This is the oil. It's an ACEA A3/B4 with high temp shear, high total base number.
It does have friction modifiers but that isn't an issue. She'll be right mate.
