    I'd happily run a 10w50 in summer in my bike, but yeah... was thinking the 10w-60 may be slightly too thick....

    Yer 10W60 is getting up there for a bike that doesn't list it as a recommended oil.

    I run Penrite 100% PAO 5W50 in most of my bikes, with the others running 10W60 as recommended, again also the Penrite 100% PAO. Has been working well. Got Penrite in the Diesel as well. Like I've said time and time before, change it on schedule and you shouldn't really have any issues. I'd take clean fresh oil over trying to run a premium/expensive oil for longer.

    With that said, maybe we should just go two stroke.. something to be said for not having to do massive oil and filter changes..

    Ive quite a few litres of Comp4 10W40 semi synth left over from sponsorship in 2014.
    20 litre drum, lid kept on, in shelving off floor, rag and upside down cup on top as well.

    Running mineral in my R3 track bike,
    The Fuchs is also unsuitable for my cars.

    I want to use it up in my Masport Briggs & Stratton which calls for SAE 30.
    Yes or No?

    *have googled, too many eggspurts have made me unlearn what I thought I knew regarding viscosity, multgrade, and temperature*

    The 10w40 viscosity is slightly heavier than recommended so it might be a bit sluggish when starting on a cold winter morning, maybe just dont go full throttle for the first few laps till it warms up properly. Other than that its a mower, the spec meets b+s recommendations and they approve full and semi synth oils. Considering most mowers dont get any oil changes at all yours will be the one of the happiest in Perth!!

    I couldnt find Delo 400 in Perth for a reasonable price so ended up buying Gulf Western Top Dog XDO (15w40) heavy diesel engine oil. Used it in my landcruiser, DR650 and FZR250 with no issues with wet clutches etc. I haven't noticed any "seat of the pants" change in either bike, and if you can get it on sale in a 20L drum its cheap (which means I'm more likely to change the oil more often)...

    So if Oils are Oils, are oil filters, oil filters?

    The filter supplier has giving me a car filter by mistake. The thread and the seal are the same so it will fit.

    What could possibly be the difference?

    Bit off topic but also related.

    Only what I've read - the internal pressure bypass valves could have different spring ratings

    Plenty of sites that will cross reference specs of filters for you to see what is interchangeable and what is not from the code on the side of the filter.

    Get googling and you’ll soon find out.

    I would think like Triple said the bypass pressure will probably be different but you might get lucky. 🤞

    +1 There are many "car oil filters" that will fit and have the same specs as MC ones but are much cheaper, just need to have the same specs like bypass valve etc

    The supplier rung me. The Ryco part number I gave them cross references a Baldwin filter that among other things the manufacturer lists motorcycles as a use.
    The Baldwin was out of stock and there computer references the filter he gave me as an equivalent but the manufacture of this one doesn't list motorcycles as a use. He said it'll be fine there is no difference between this one and the Baldwin. So this is an equivalent of an equivalent.
    The Manufacture of this filter makes a motorcycle specific one which I assume the only difference is probably that its more expensive.

    Cheers,
    Viva la 2 Stroke!!!
