So I decided to do the 54 000 km service myself....R3500 at the agents every 6 000km's is just not on.

Always been a fan of Liqui Moly and they have 2 variants in the 10W40..the normal 4T and then the street race variant, but no-one in the entire Pta area stocks it...only the normal car oil :frustrated:

Had to drive 40km's to Centurion (on a Saturday mind you) to buy Motul from the dealers .
Anybody in the Pta knows who actively stocks Liqui Moly ?

Is it compatible with wet clutches?

On this side of the planet you only get this at the bike shops or at the larger bike tire and accessory outlets.

Dont even bother with the normal automotive outlets ....



Just plan ahead for the next service and pick up the parts ahead of time.

Het dit probeer...nie eers Full Throttle hier het gehad nie, ook nie een vd 5 bike shops wat ek gebel het nie. En die wat Motul het vra sommer tot R200/l.

Cayenne is die enigstes wat het maar dis 60km ver in Kyalami

Ok. So meeste van die manne hier gebruik die Castrol Actevo. Goeie olie en prys is nie mal duur nie. Ek koop dit sommer hier by ons plaaslike Goeie Hoop Onderdele.

@ Dawie, dankie ma ongelukkig nie....die graad vd olie is baie belangrik...viskositeit ens moet reg wees anders gaan mens skade kry. 5W40 is 'n vol sintetiese olie vir onder andere VW 502.** standaarde, gebruik dit oppi Polo

ZX10R Service manual sê 10W40...en dan 'n klomp standaarde. Ouens oorsee gebruik somme die goedkoopste 10W40 van die naaste supermark rak af. Ek wou nie die kans vat met enige 10W40 nie, wou iets hê in 'n 4T wat spesifiek bedoel is vir hoë werkverrigting motorfiets enjins, soos die http://www.liqui-moly.com/liquimoly/pro ... nt&land=GB, maar Motul is al wat beskibaar was.

Kon die gewone 10W40 kry in Liqui Moly...R580 by Autozone en R336 by Naskar....maak mens wonder ne...
