    Kawi oil

    I had my dealer change my oil and filter as part of my 50 hour service.

    I do not want to go into details about my results on just 50 miles of riding, but I suggest maybe some of you guys may want to give it a try.

    I am basing this on what I saw on both my ultras, not one.

    Don't ask for details try it for yourself.

    50 hard miles is not enough to make any real conclusion on anything. but, it appears I had significantly less blow by. That is all.

    I was suggesting others try the oil and see what happens.


    I am not one to believe brand x is better than brand y, but I can say I saw something today after riding I have not seen in a very long time.

    Also, I have never had a real problem of level rising. The oil gets dirty, but I hardly ever gain level of any significance.

    HELP! Are you saying 50hrs or 50 miles?

    I had my dealer change my oil and filter as part of my 50 hour service.

    50 miles of riding. I am comparing Mobil 1 to Kawi oil.


    Guys, buy the Kawi oil and give it a try. That is all I am suggesting there may be something to using it versus other brands and then again it may be nothing at all.

    Have ordered Kawi oil today. I will try anything. Its a shame the 250 has the fuel in oil proplem, I like it better than my stage 1 RXP,(now sold) but just want to sort this weakness. I also have a Yam FXHO and a Seadoo 3D.

    I remember you posting the info. Also, another member I will not mention by name has used Kawi oil and has had no problems.

    I have not had what I consider a major problem.

    All I can say is after 50 miles of WOT very hard running on two Ultras with Kawi oil both intake drain tubes were completely dry. Nothing!

    After every run since I changed the orignal oil I have collected at least .5 to 1 inch of fluid in the drain tube that looked and smelled like an oil/gas mixture. It was more gas than oil like.
