End of the oil thread

Start oil threads here so they can be ignored and/or ridiculed by most of us (except for those hardcore few that live for that kinda stuff).
Forum rules
Here's the place for you to debate what oil is best. Post your oil related topics her so we don't clutter up the other sections. Most people avoid oil threads like the plague.

Motul had only one effect on my Ural .... She started to mark her terrain!

Before the last changes of final drive and transmission I used it there (Never in the engine).
I don't think the oil threads will quit, I guess now more defenders of their own brands will stand up and proclaim their non plus ultra solution.
Chaos, you stirred up a can of worms.

Two huge market forces now working together? :sarcasm: Is world domination next? Does this mean I've just voided my warranties by using up seven quarts of various Redline products, a couple of dabs of Starburags, and some 60% moly paste? :roll:

Any links to the oil threads? Searching oil is daunting. Any other key phrases? I have questions but don't want to get linched.

Mikey if you are serious, just go to the header of this page. It will say "Board Index Wrenches Order of the Greasy Wrench Oil threads".
Just click on Oil Threads and read to your hearts content.
