This is probably going to evoke a thousand answers!

I use Silkolene Super 4 10W-40 semi synthetic.

Any motorcycle 10/40 mineral or semi synthetic oil should do. Both my zeds have this in - supplied by Debben performance in Ringwood.

Apologies- not got me glasses on. Suggest you phone Ray @ Debben performance and ask his opinion.

Morris Oils semi synthetic.

Crazy thing is i live a cough and a spit away from Morris's in Shrewsbury but they won't sell it direct only through a distribution centre/shop in Stoke :roll:
So buy it from the Stafford show each year.........much cheaper !
