    Shipping is on the house, do a good deed for a vet or an elder.
    Hope you had fun on your 5 day ride. Still have snow on the ground up here in Ohio.
    Be safe, Dave

    At next change , I am again going to run Yam 15-50 and will sample. If it stands up as expected , I will settle on this and extend out to (10000km- 6200mile) intervals.
    Interested in your results.

    (Can only post 1000 key strokes in email) geeesh. lol

    Steve.

    Reading the oil recent oil thread and see you had a analysis done at 8500 miles.(RT 15-40)
    Do you happen to have the viscosity values from that sample? Also % of fuel if any?
    I have been doing some testing using 5/40 and 15-40 RT. on my Gen 3. (I ran 15=40 on my 99 Concours for more than 80K miles with no issue).I personally know two people running C14's that have well in access of 100K miles exclusively on T-6. They have not ever sampled...
    I have run a couple of changes with 5-40 T6 and based on the amount of shearing(even 1800 mile test showed excessive to me) have decided not to use it anymore. The non syn 15-40 fares
    better.
    I normally change at 6000km(=/-4000mile). I have run Yam 15-50 but did not sample.
    I did first two changes with Yam 10-40 and did not like sound of engine under light load (3500rpm). Yam 15-50 takes care of that as does RT 15-40.
