Good video. But it would be really nice if the sound of the actual action could be heard.

I don't have a pipe so all the noise was wind and the whining from the triple. You would rather have music, trust me.
It actually makes me want a pipe now. I was really trying not to waste the money!

I use the same stuff Triumph uses (Castrol Racing 4T) but in a 10W-50. Seems to last a little longer. Oh, and I have never gone as far as the recommended 6k miles between oil changes. More like around 3-4k.

Where are you finding the oil at? I have been looking and not found it at any of the big name auto parts stores.

I hope the Castrol is cheaper than the Mobile was at the dealer. Last change I did on my Sprint the Mobile racing was going for around 80 bucks for the jug.

Just did some online searching and Advance auto parts has it in stock at a store 10 minutes from me.

Cold equals thicker oil so I would think a 5W would flow easier than a 10W at a given temp. In other words a 10W would be further from ideal viscosity in cold temps. Just my understanding.

Ouch!! That's quite a drop in mileage. I just loaded the Arrow Map for my LV exhaust. Still winter here, but hope to be riding soon. If my mileage drops like that I'll be putting the standard map back on.
