Thread: Oil Brand you use

    I didn't include elf or Bel-Ray in the poll. Guess that could go under,"other". Not even sure if one can get elf in the states.
    I have heard good things about both lubricants though. Any body know about these?

    Two quarts of 20W-50 plus 8oz. of BG's MOA in my '79 R100S. I usually change oil every 1000-1500 miles and the oil and filter every 2000-2500 miles. If I stretch out the intervals I usually have to add about a half-a-quart at 1000 miles.

    Looking back in the service reciepts from the early 90's. various BMW dealers put Castrol 20-50 in my bike 1990PD-owned by someone else at that time. ive used mobil 1, which let me know which gaskets were really leaking! Now with replaced gaskets I use Castol Syntec Blend 20-50. Valvoline makes a synthetic 20-50 which ive tried
    Having said that castrol Dino was always used in it prior. When I replaced the oilpan gasket last summer, there was not a lick of tarnish inside the pad, cam lobes looked great as well!!
    Every 3000 miles, does it really matter??

    Mobil Delvac "the million mile oil" has served my (and more importantly my iron horse) very well. It tests very well, and is cheap so you change it often.
