What definitely works is adding a bit of 2 stoke oil and some slick50.  Your engine will last another 200 000 kays and power will be up by at least 10- 20 % :thumleft:

Be very careful about what you pour into your engine. There are rumours that 'they' are sending round teams of investigators empowered to examine all motorcycles.

If your engine has not been filled with preservation oil this will be taken as evidence that you have been using the bike and you can be liable for a very hefty fine.  :deal:

Dankie vir al julle raad en advies kÍrels.  Ek is amper klaar. 

I had to remove all the aerofoils and ailerons before starting anything.  I had to remove the flux capacitor first before being able tor each in and loosen the powerband.  These damn bikes. 

Ek hoop net my vrou kan my dorpsklere voor Maandag weer skoonkry.

Te Koop. Verskeidenheid boute, moere en wassers.  Ook 'n paar rubber dempers.  Slegs een keer losgedraai.  Mooi met olie bewaar sodat hulle nie roes nie.  Maak my 'n aanbod asseblief.

Ek het n Japanees-Malgassiese mechanic met franse invloed. Hy is 'n expert. Die rumour is hy kan n valve so vinnig ruil dat die ander wiel nie eers afblaas nie.

Die geheime spy kamera wat ek in garage ge-installeer het, het net een keer gedeeltelik getransmit voor n magnetiese gold dit laat uitbrand het.

Maar ek is bereid om te deel.

Onthou as jy olie aftap moet jy nuwe valve clearances ook insit. Kyk sommer of daar slytasie op die powerband ook is. Baie ouens vergeet dit dan verstaan hulle nie hoekom die bike nie perform nie  :thumleft:

Hierdie is baie belangrik   :thumleft:

Onthou om die nuwe valve clearances in te sit soos Kortbroek sÍ.   PÍl van my het dit nie gedoen nie, toe val sy ou valve clearance regdeur die blok onder tot in die
sump.

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.

Please keep your replies on topic and no bitchy comments.

Dorsland, I dont know much about 1. and 2., but can offer some advice as to the the question of what oil to use. Without knowing what bike you ride and what result you are after I will offer you the options I normally consider:
a) You ride a thumper with stock seat and rear suspension, with tyres pumped to 2.5 bar, and are planning a long tar trip
   -> use Arnica oil - it will permeate through the whole bike, smooth out the vibrations, massage your ass while you ride and you will finish the ride feeling like a young man just returning from the massage parlour
b) You are over 50, and your bike looks a little abused, with numerous surface scratches. Your skill is also not good enough to make the ladies look your way anymore
  -> use Bio Oil - it will work its way all over, magically smoothing out wrinkles and other saggy parts, while also removing scratches from the bike,  leaving both of you looking 10 years younger
c) You ride a super expensive bike, kinda want a new bike already again, money is no issue for you, but your wife might think it unnecessary and withhold a bit of love at home
  -> use Pr*long oil - this way you are supporting clever entrepreneurs who can sell ice to eskimos, and when engine blows while demonstrating to your mates how you can actually drain the oil and keep riding through the 40deg Tankwa heat you can at least educate the other people around you, also having a legitimate excuse to buy a new bike

Side note - oil readily transfer properties of mechanical parts it has previously come into contact with:
  -> oil from a Land Rover will make your bike sick as well, causing a permanent discharge and making you the centre of all jokes forevermore
  -> oil from a Ferrari, Land Cruiser, etc will make your bike better

Good luck with the work, and let me know it worked out for you after lockdown

Guys please be aware that we are in the midst of a lock down.  Now before attempting any maintenance on your boney wear a mask wash your hands and don't chew with your mouth open.{coz your mother says so}. Exposing the internals of your bike to the atmosphere is a no no. The virus will cause your rear wheel to lock up (air filter totally blocked due to infection) .Now you will suffer  5G symptoms.  Bad news this. 5G symptoms are identified by  server chest pains as the rear locks up and you connect the handle bars with your chest at +5G,s . True I read it on the interweb 5g is killing us.

Hey! You young Ďuns can come learn a few things about biking from the ou manne here OK. Like I have a lot of advice to offer on oil changes, tyre pressure and stuff now.

I have my faithful Bushlander plaasdonkie still. Plus, I can still ride it while you guys are under lockdown. So thereís that.

En jy Mnr @Serf, ek hou jou dop met jou ďat his ageĒ.

Hierdie is n universal ketting. Dit moet net omgedraai word na "No" toe dan is dit dieselfde as die off kettings.

After reading all the technical information that you guy's have given I now feel that my bike will ride smoother , faster and be more reliable.  I feel that it will complete the tsat in a few months without to many breakdowns.  You guys are the best source of information to keep a motorcycle on the trailer.
