More dumb oil stuff
« on: October 29, 2020, 12:41:46 PM »
So if my googling is correct, the HF611 is the correct filter for the sef500.  Anyone care to comment on premium oil?  I see it appears Motul is recommended by sherco but what I read was way back in 2015.  Has there been a change?  Ive run Amsoil for a long time in most of my bikes so may go with it since they have 10-60w.  Thoughts?

In short, what is the OEM recommended oil at this point?  Motul?

I just did my first oil change. Yes, the HF611 is the correct filter. I went with Amsoil 10w40. It calls for 1.1 liters which is 37.2 ounces.

I did soak the new filter in fresh oil while the old oil was draining out, then I installed it.

Iíve used motul 7100 10/60, in mine, but next time Iíll be using Q8 sbk 10/50. Iíve used it in all my bikes with no problems
£75 for 20 litres, instead of £43 for 4 litres of motul!
