General Question.. 1967 HDFL...The yearly miles on this bike are very few...Last year was less than 100. The oil used is a HD 60 straight weight w/HD filter. With low miles ridden, what is the length of time recommended between oil changes, since the mileage recommendation is not an issue?

What type of oil is recommended


You did not share the year, make, or model of the mower, but there is a general rule of thumb here.
Unless you are living where there is cold weather (below 40 degrees) , a good oil is 30 HD weight. If you are using this in colder weather, you would switch to 20W HD oil.
Be sure to use a HD, do not use "non-detergent".
You may also use a 10W-30 in any weather.
God bless your efforts.

Do you think that MOTOBIKE mobils can be a perfect lubricant for MOUNTAINBIKE SUSPENSION FORKS??


You can use the same lubricants as long as they match the specifications for your Mountain bike fork. Each manufacture of fork will provide a list of recommended weights and types for the specific fork model.

In general the mountain bike will use a much lighter weight lubricant and the heat resisitance needs are far less. So in general the Motorbike suspension fluids will be too heavy.

The Fork that is pictured in the bike represented will not work well with Motorbike oils but if you have a different fork it might.

How many miles you have to change oil in 2007 e


Depends on the type of oil, temperature, and whether short hops or highway, but in general one changes oil twice a year. With the better synthetics you could go a whole year.

Bike has a lag when its cold like its something in the motor is in a bid. after 10 miles or so it frees up and runs like its supposed to


What weight oil are you running in your bike? Years ago when we ran the straight 60 weight oil, on a cold morning you had a time kick starting the bike. Another thing is that when your bike is cold, it requires a much richer mixture to run. Whether your bike is fuel injected or carburated, you're running a very rich mixture. The fuel system control or the enricher provides the rich mixture and a rich mixture will make the bike run sluggishly.

Oil blowing out of exhaust


Run it out, The oil has collect in the exhaust media and baffles. Iver fill can cause this proble. As long as it has oil in it, run it out (burn it out) If the oil is low when you ck it, and that should be often, Then note it. Valve guide wear is progressive and the engine would smoke. Keep the oil level proper and take it on a mellow ride, no hard throttling. You should see an improvement after about 20 miles down the freewayat 60. Just stay alertand pay attention to the sound of the motor. Good luck and let me know when you get back.

Engine noise


and it is brand new only 75 miles on it when i got it. At the 600 mile mark i did the valve adjustment and changed the oil, after another 100-150 miles, the normal ticking that you get from the motor started getting louder. I checked the adjustment on the valves again, they were good to go, and after another 50 miles or so i changed the oil again to make sure there were no metal flakes in the oil, which there werent. Do the 250's just get a little noisier as tehy break in? It seems to me its coming from the bottom end. It has automatic cam chain tensioners, so i dont think its that, and i have checked to make sure everything is tight like it should be. The ticking does go along with engine speed, and at 55-60 mph you can just barely hear it over the wind and road noise. I have worked on cars for several years, and i know some engines are just normally loud or ticky, but this is my first bike that i have ever really messed with. This normal for this bike? ,i had a 82 yamaha 650 and with 40,000 miles it was the quitest bike i ever had. i realize that doesnt really compare to ur bike but i wouldnt expect an engine to be louder after that few a miles. i would really suggest finding a forum especially for your bike (theres bound to be one) and asking around, its really a bike to bike difference ,,,

98 fatboy engine noise.


Harley's do run hot, anywhere from 220 to 240 normally, and a little hotter this time of year. I suggest running a straight weight oil, and a little heavier weight in the summer. I use Valvoline VR-1 30 weight most of the year, and 50 or 60 weight in the hot summer, and I use Lucas 20w50 primary/trans for the primary and tranny. I don't bother with the extremely high prices of the HD oils. For the whining noise, you need to determine which side of the engine it's coming from. Whining will almost always be in the bottom end. There's nothing in the top end that should whine, and if there is whining from the top, it's usually an air leak around the carb. Start by checking the fluid levels in the tranny, and primary. These are the two most common areas to pick up a whining noise. If it's coming from the left, it's going to be in the primary, and usually this is caused by low fluid levels. From the right, it's going to be either the tranny, low fluid, or the oil pump. The oil pump is a gear type system. If you're running a light weight oil, say a 10w40 or HD 20w50, when the engine heats up and the oil thins, it can cause the oil pump gears to whine a bit, especially in the summer heat. So, check the fluid levels, if they check good, then change the oil, since the summer is coming to an end, go with a straight 30 weight. This should clear up the whining noise. If it doesn't, get back to me with the exact location the noise is coming from, and we'll go to the next level of diagnosing the whine, but I believe that this will cure it.
