Nog 'n donnerse olie draad
« on: September 07, 2020, 12:11:01 pm »
Ok then - it was bound to happen - another oil topic thread....  ::)

I have had my 2007 1200GS for about a week now. I believe these okes have dry clutches and that normal gewone car oil will in fact work in these brutes.

Two questions -
1. What are you guys running in your dry clutch 1200's ? (I'm on 73K kms now)
2. Is there any specific reason why I cannot put my highly-specced-wet-clutch-ravenol-5W40-full-synth-JASO-API-SN-MA2 (which I bought for my 800) into the 12?
Thanks

No reason why the Ravenol won't work, although I like a 50 on the aircooled boxers.
I use the Fuchs 5W50  full synthetic. The new one is Silkolene Pro 4 15W50. full synth.
