What is the common motor oil you are using?

Postby gustavowoltmann » Thu Jan 26, 2017 1:04 am

Hello everyone my name is Gustavo Woltmann and I am an assistant in a small and private publishers company. I am also a new motorcycle rider for 3 months now. May I ask from this forum, what is the common motor oil you are using? Is it the best one and why?

This can depend on the actual make and model of the motorcycle so I think you need to tell us what that is.

Also the brands and types of oil you are able to buy may also depend on where you live.
