20W50 like Castrol old age engine oils? No. Tried that. She sipped oil and gear changes were sluggish. 15W40 Mineral or semi synth is a good choice.

I'll do the 0.5mm oversize and see what she does. Thank you for the advice, I appreciate

StofOtter, I have 2008 oil burner and went the 0,5mm route and now It does not burn any oil even with my riding style. I only change oil when giving it a service

Hi Porra, if you go 0.5mm oversize what do you have to change ... rings only ?

Unless you use the opportunity to check the head, re seat valves etc. I had 2 new seats put in as they were worn beyond the smallest shim I could get.

Add another R1500
