    Pretty sure EMS ditched Ipone in favor of Motul. So around the same time, I ditched Ipone for whatever they switched to, since they're the ones oiling me up usually out of laziness on my part. Either way, no noticable difference to me between the two...

    I've been using all sorts of oil, from cheap dino 10w40, to high end Motul... for years. I have never noticed a real difference in any of them to be honest.

    They key is to keep it fresh. Oil is cheap, motors are not.

    Bayside sells/used to sell "Motul". In quotations because the jugs were not the normally
    shaped Motul containers .... the square ones. They sell "Motul" labelled containers
    that are the traditionally shaped North American containers. Very strange to my eyes.

    But I use Rotella T6 in the Ape and the wifes 696. Yay for Canadian Tire!

    Motul is fine, it's mostly what I've been using for ages with nary a complaint. I'd go grab it from Mspeed.
    Some people are like Slinkies ...
    Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    i hate Motul chain lube. Maxima Chain wax is the bomb.

    Should I replace the crush washer for my 3 drain plugs every time I do a oil change?

    Since they only cost a few pennies, why wouldn't you want to?

    And Maxima wax is tops.
    I define Hell as having to ride back and forth from Blaine to Tijuana on I - 5 in perpetuity.

    Took my old ones off and they didn't look out of shape at all. stacked them on top of my new ones and they are exactly the same. I have re used them 3 times now with no leakage.

    with maxima chain wax, i have done over 8,000 km's with only 2 adjustments. not bad. on all my other bikes I would of done 4 or 5 adjustments by now.
