I club baby seals and squeeze them directly into the crankcase.

I use olive oil. I was gonna use peanut oil, but I'm afraid my other bike may have a peanut allergy.

Everyone knows you can't use olive oil in a British bike, olive oil is reserved for Ducatis.

straight butter here in 'merica

I use castrol 10 w 50, it says for motorcycles right on it. remember that your oil is not only for your crankcase but also your transmission in a motorcycle. Im thinking about giving royal purple a shot this time around

All I ever use. Ever since I read the manual, I started using this and just couldn't get away from it. Go Triumph for recommending such a great product!


I'm not saying let's go kill all the stupid people. Im saying let's remove all the warning labels and let things work themselves out.
