Re: BMW not recommending Synthetic oil
Much over nothing but oil again. I use Castrol now because my Service Manager said not until 12,000 for snth. FD and Tranny is Synth since the 600, and yes mine changed my FD oil at my request, with my carry in. At 3000 I went to 10-40 for the Winter here in PA, need to get the 6000 done and I will dump in 20-50.
I use the banned brand name and have for 15 years, will continue to, but at the frequency most of us change oil, synth or dino will do. You can debate white papers all day, but in the end has anyone documented a blown engine to engine lubricant alone as the cause?
Stop the oil wars and use what you like, change often, and ride the snot out of the bike.
