penrite hpr30

Post  Ironman on Sat 03 Sep 2016, 10:03 pm

First topic message reminder :

just a quick one. on the penrite website they mention hpr30 is ok for use in motorcycle engines with wet clutches but nothing is on the bottle at all with regards to that.
I spoke to their lubes guys and they said it is ok to use but its not jaso ma certified because of the amount of zinc in the oil apparently as I recall. I could be wrong. anyways I thought that a heavy 60 weight oil might help my 1200 witha bit of a hot engine noise and clutch shudder just before the lever is fully released.
I changed the filter and filled with hpr30. well im impressed. its smoother, clutch shudder is gone and quieter.
I was using hpr gas 10. so the hpr30 gets my approval.

Sort of sounds like Slick 50.

Here's a question - with regards to an oils capacity to transfer heat, will say a 40 weight oil transfer heat better or worse than a 60 weight to a given size oil cooler?

This is the $64000 question......
My brother has been asking this question to oil reps,  and clerks alike,  for 20yrs or more. 
(He's just about to turn 54, and has still got his first car, (VW bug, one of many) from when he was 17).
He's a VW nut, and as such,  they are air oil cooled, so has the same interest as me,  when it comes to oils.

I'm using this and it's brilliant in my GSX 1250 FA, more positive gear changes, quieter gear box and you can "feel" the difference.  see link: https://www.autobarn.com.au/penrite-engine-oil-oa03395-mc410w40004

That's about the same price as the Motul I buy
