I'm still trying to figure out what happened with the 7500 mile OCIs using conventional SF motor oils in the 1980s. How did that pan out, and why don't we see that anymore?

Computer controlled, for a new source of electrical gremlins that only the dealer can address, and stupid expensive no doubt. No, I'll not be replacing two perfectly good, 100% mechanical systems with this garbage.

If you want apples to apples, compare the current Honda CBR1000RR (which I own) to the current BMW S1000RR. In '09 the NA BMW was 197hp/L The Honda isn't.

With Gl-4 available, why take a risk with Gl-5? I will continue to use the proper gear oil, which is what I would recommend to anyone who asked me.

That would not make me happy, but if no visible damage was done I would not worry about it. I am super paranoid about getting brake fluid on stuff, yet I have - and have not yet had any damage. I would obviously try to avoid it.

Looks ok for what it is.. That said i would not ever use one of those filters.. I like the wix for the shop and for my own vehicles however the ultra is also a very nice filter. the ocod is not a filter i tell people to use.
