A colleague of mine took delivery of this on Friday. He wants to know what oil to use - 15W-40 okay?

Years ago I wanted to buy one and someone said "grey import" and I did not buy. Still sorry I did not.
Castrol 20/50 will be fine.

15W40 if you want to go cheap (Caltex Delo)

10W40 if you want to go for a bike specific oil (Castrol ActEvo for example, not much more expensive).

Don't use 20W50. Very thick when cold, like bitumen when cold and old.

Pretty bike. Speak to Topbox about crash bars asap to keep it pretty.

Spares for the Super Ten is as scarce as hen's teeth.

The 660XTZ on the other hand shares most engine and gearbox parts with the Raptor.
But alas, if you stuff up that pretty tank and fairing be prepared to convert into a naked bike or use aftermarket cowlings.

Very nice!

I have been using brandname 20W50 in aircooled XT's for 29 years,remove sump every once in

a while.  No sludge at all, reach very high KM's without using oil, no abnormal wear on parts

like rockers,etc.

Change oil every 5000km's and filter every 10 000km's---very economical!
As ek jy was sou ek nie so gelyk het nie.
