Life span for Engine oil?


Recommended Posts

Lets say I changed Fully syn engine oil and it can last for 5000km. But I seldom ride the bike and the engine oil passed 3mths but yet to hit 5000km. So its okay to hit 5000km then change or when it reach 3mths i haf to change?

 

So if overshot the 3mths i still still using it will anything happen??

Basically its good practise that you change the oil when it is more then 3 months old dispite clocking very little mileage.

 

Low usuage usually end up with condensation within the tranny. Trace of water vapour can cause acid build up in the engine oil.

 

Then again, really its your call.

 

 

 

trust IL4 man he is the man!!

It's only engine oil.. Costs only $10+.. I'd say best to change it..

 

$10+? tat have to depend on which type of engine oil u use. normal fully-syn easily cost $20 and above.

Clocked 3000km on it changed at least 5 times..

Never really used fully syn oil...

Till now all my engines silky smooth..

ugh. please dont treat synthetic oils as a magical oil that can last twice as long as semi-synthetic and mineral oils.

 

they both get expended at around the same time.

 

if you change every 5k using semi synthetic, then change every 5k as well if you are using synthetic.

 

god knows how much eo is left after 10k. do they even check the eo level once in a while?

 

10k. good grief, just how much EO is left in the crank case anyway after some EO gets burnt?

 

just because synthetic oils cost twice as much as semi synthetic oils doesnt mean that it will last twice as long.
