Advice needed please
« on: April 17, 2020, 05:06:48 pm »
I know this has been briefly discussed on the forum before so please excuse me for posing the questions again.  I know these issues are a matter of life and death and I'd really like to get the experts' opinion.

1. What oil should I use in my bike.
2. Should I stand or sit when pouring the oil into the bike.
3. What pressure should my tyres be before changing the oil and is this dependent upon whether I sit or stand?  (I know it lowers the centre of gravity so that is not my point)

Please keep your replies on topic and no bitchy comments.

At least bitch jy nie meer onophoudelik oor die lock down nie.  Waar het jy die olie gekoop?

KÍrels ek is nou diep seergemaak.  Onskuldige vrae en ek word gesteenig.   :peepwall: :lol8:

9 Bar sÍ jy.  Raait, gaan dit probeer.

@Bill the Bong nog nie olie gekoop nie, ek wag geduldig dat ons vonnis gelig word dan koop ek.

Jy moet die petrol ook eers uit tap voor jy olie mag in gooi om te verhoed dat dit meng.

Gooi dit ook eers in n glas saam met ys. En voeg jou gunsteling geur van Oros by.

Please keep your replies on topic and no bitchy comments.

If you re asking for the new bike, it is a Honda, so; 1. Any old oil, cooking oil makes faster.
                                                                                 2. Please stand while pouring the oil into the bike, as you'll be able to jump away quicker should anything suddenly shoot off the bike.
                                                                                 3. Tyre pressure is irrelevant, those bikes have the solid wheelbarrow type of wheel favoured by Honda and Lasher.

En di belangrikste is:

3 omwentelings antikloksgewys in n oostelike rigting terwyl in di glas, uitgooi moet suidlangs geskied in n kloksgewyse beweging

I'm sharing the oil from my "broken" Cruiser with my bike.  That shouldn't be a problem should it Welsh? I read on Twitter it's OK to do that.
