  • oil anaylisis from my 2016 883

    I don't put to much miles on the bike. In the last year a little over 2000 miles. Oil filter and top off of oil at 6 months. Using HD360 20w50. Copper is high but should trend down.

    Looks pretty good. What do they think is causing the high copper?
    Bonneville might have beat us this year but that White Bitch is going down in 2017!!!

      Normal break in. My 04 xb12s had high copper for a while to then, settled down.

    The oil, like most petrol oils sheared down to a 40w pretty fast. Doesn't seem to affect wear though.

      Put some VR1 20w50 conventional in there. You will love the results.

          The analysis done on the oil nerds bike showed no shear after 3500. The lab said they would prefer he wait till 5000 to send in the next sample for better analysis. This was on a bike from Phoenix running 300 degree temps. I never believe anything until I do it myself. My motor was way quieter .
