    Corn Oil - made from Pop Corn
    Preservation over restoration - they are only original once

    I use diesel oil because
    - no friction modifiers is fine for wet clutches
    - mineral based semi synthetic blend so you get some of that high tech custom molecule wear prevention with out costing the earth.
    - Has a Zinc additive to help keep the metal bits apart
    - 15 - 50 suits QLD High temp range better than 40W and yet not too thick in our winter (bit more of that semi-syn advantage)
    - Its a whole fleet oil, I buy it in drums and use it for the diesel Triton, and the muti-valve petrols like the wifeís Capiva the Son`s Laser because its cheaper that way.

    So more than adequate and cheap.
    Great info, thanks.

    It's very interesting. But I don't have the courage to try it.

    I use Motul 5100 10w-40 Technosynthese Ester on my Katana's and also on my Suzuki Track Bikes. The Track Bikes had the oil and filter changed after 4 track days.
