i still have my 04 vfr800 but no the 0w40 is being tested in the yz250f mixmasterofdoom

neither are getting ridden much as i have gone back to swimming and winning national championships at it vs being a soso local harescramble racer and until this last week was too dusty to ride offroad anywhere around here.

All the free areas for offroad is all but gone isn't it?

I sold my cr500 back in 2000, I moved to florida for a year in 2004, they had a lot of forest area that could be ridden, no cactus, no thorns, and you could ride in the rain cause, no mud it was all sand, it was great for a dual sport, cause the roads alone were limited..

Out of curiosity Sunruh, what ARE you running in your vfr800. I've got an '03; love that exhaust growl.

Are you selling the bike, or getting something repaired?

Im closing in on 2500 mile mark with Valvoline mc oil, Im only running another uoa to see if my lead count is the same general area, Im expecting it to be.

I ran a 200 mile flush with Supertech 15w40, before installing the Valvoline.

Hey Mack, how would you rate the Valvoline oil for shift quality and NVH?

I just dumped the Valvoline 10w40 today 2500 miles, Its as good as any and wasn't replaced due to shift quality degrade. To tell yeah the truth, it seemed fine on install, and only got better with more miles. I swapped back to Castrol 4 t , but all oils are on sale till aug 25 at autozone, so I may pick up another batch of Valvoline before it expires.

By sight , the Valvoline looked really nice on drain out, definitely could have extended, I retrieved a sample, and will probably send it in soon.

UHHH I want the Valvoline back, Castrol has much stronger clutch grip and translates into notchy shifting . This was the second time Ive ran Castrol 4t and didn't notice the last time. Maybe I was coming off a diesil or car oil at the time and that's why I didn't notice.

Thanks Mack. I also have a vfr800, and am always looking for a good oil at a good price. I've been running T6 for the last few oil changes, and it's done well. But I am a member of BITOG, so you know.
