foaming and ability for oil to absorb and release heat
just returned from a 2k trip on my /6. Checked oil at approx 700 miles and it showed almost no consumption. Ran the bike pretty hard at Barber raceway (kept up with Ducati) and a couple of trips on the dragon tail and a long day at 70mph the oil light flashed on at stoplight. Checked and level was just above minimum. added 3/4 qt of Castrol 4t. Looks like the oil went through the right carb.
Question is this; Valvoline claims it has anti foaming ingredients. If crank ventilation is source of oil loss is there any data on what oil prevents foaming the best? I was using Spectro gold.
Some dragracing fiends (friends) seem to believe that synthetic oil doesn't absorbe engine heat as well as conventional. Any data on that?
Sorry if I hijacked zddp thread with other questions but since the topic is oil....
link to mobil 1 zddp levels
the levels in the motorcycle oil are quite a bit higher than the 15w50 car oil.
actually quite a bit higher than in the amzoil advertisement / oil analysis.
Oh and about blowby, I sure hope not with new pistons, rings, valves, guides and way more money invested than the bike is worth.
