    Did the job just fine. As I mentioned earlier I have never used specific motorcycle on any bike
    I've ridden since 1978. As long as it matches the manufactures recomended spec and oil/filter changes are done on a regular basic it's fine.

    Now's good.

    OK with that out of the way, she bought a Honda car in the late 80's early 90's. I think it was called Aerodeck? It was a wagon. It came with three year factory servicing. It turns out that that was the servicing it got. She drove it for 260000 k's. without changing the oil after the dealer stopped calling her for her "free" services. Actually the thing that let go was the cambelt (or cam drive anyway) but it completely lunched the motor. valves impacted the pistons and it bent a rod and stuff.

    The weird thing is she was "disappointed" in it and we were all like "how the fuck did it keep going for five years"?

    She's currently doing the same thing to a Mitsubishi.....
    What school did your mother-in-law finish?

    Here's a pic that came up in my instagram feed this morning. Good an example as any I can think of why you should change your oil....
