First Service! ~1200USD ?



yeah, it was. BUT: I also got the Moto Corse titanium midpipe, new EPROM (i guess it matches it, of course you have to pay for that too), Carbon fiber rear mudguard thing (to stop crap from collecting in the swingarm, etc.)....

And Oil. I saw some oil threads. Thought this was a bit interesting. So the oil I got is called (on the bill) "ADVANTAGE NEO OIL SAE OW-5". Now this stuff cost me almost 40 USD / quart (x3 quarts). I was like "wow, that is some expensive oil" and got the response "very nice oil".

I love it here.

don't suppose anybody knows what this stuff could be??

just brought it back from the dealer (3km away). Haven't done much on it yet, but looking forward to the 6k+ rev range....

(pics to follow when i get it home, etc.)

What what what? Did you just say that was too light!? I don't know, an interesting choice.

On your question, isn't 'Advantage' a shell moniker?

yeah, maybe that is a typo. but not mine...that's what's written.

Not sure about the Shell thing. Never looked for oil at a shell, so haven't seen it.

I'll try to go by and ask to get some more specifics. but still, 40 bucks a quart....geez....

The $40 a quart is what amazes me. That is highway robbery.

The factory recommend AGIP full syn 10W-60 was only $9.16 a liter when I bought it a few months back. I bought 20 liters for that price.
