Here's the latest report for my KTM. Figured I'd try a new 10w60, Silkolene, and see how the engine liked it.

What the heck?

According to this, a SAE 60 grade should have the following cSt values at 100C:

21.90-26.09

So your 10W60 sheared down to a 30?!

What oil was used for the 9/18/16 sample date? That one held up remarkably well for 2k miles.

Did they test the viscosity correctly? If yes, this oil really sheared!
But with the low flash point, I wonder if there isn't more fuel than the reported 0,5%.

Edit : the oil for the 2000 miles run was Amsoil SAE60, hence the shearing resistance.

10W-60 oils are ridiculous. They try to be two too-different things at the same time. The final formulation process occurs in the engine, where they quickly often become xW-30 oils.

Yet to see anything come out of a KTM resemble its original viscosity.

Hey albertdi,

Your lead count of 219 for (1000 miles) on a catted bike is a little high,. Id scale it back down alittle . like 80 to 100 ppm max . Probably didnt give you any issue, but no reason to over do it, unless you are liking it. Your iron dropped alittle though.

20w50 mc Valvoline is running $4.50 at walmart , if into savings.

Especially for 1000 miles, you're not getting and financial benefit with $15 oil, at that milege

The oil is about a poor of an oil as it gets, it dropped out of grade.

Have you ever considered Motul 300V 4T 15W-50? Perhaps it will do a little better than some of the other oils you have tried so far.
