    stock clearance!

    Hi all, just a quick heads up...

    As you know, Castrol are famous for making top of the range, high quality products. They are also a company that like to keep their products looking fresh and up to date. To do this, they regularly change their bottle shape design and the look of their labels.
    An example of this is their recent changes to the Castrol Power 1 Racing 4T 10w-40 - this fully synthetic 4 stroke motorbike oil still has the exact same high quality formula that remains unchanged, they have simply updated their label and the shape of the bottle. They take aesthetics very seriously!

    At Opie Oils, we also like to keep things up to date and looking fresh, so we're offering a fantastic price for our remaining stock of "old label" Castrol Power 1 Racing 4T 10w-40, which is even better when you apply your 10% forum discount (found in signature): JUST 16.20 FOR 4 LITRES!



    You can view this product HERE

    There is only limited stock remaining of this great product at this price - once it's gone, it's gone. At this point, only the "new label" Castrol Power 1 Racing 4T 10w-40 will be available for purchase, at the current price of 34.16 with forum discount, so get those orders in quick to take advantage of this price.

    If you need a bit of info on this product, have a look below:

    Re: stock clearance!

    I'm a little confused by oil types. As we all know the manual for the RR says use 5W-40. The 5W part of the code is the viscosity in cold temperatures, and 40 the viscosity at 100C.

    As such, the only difference between the oil in this offer is a slightly worse performance at cold temps? So much worse that it cannot/should not be used in an RR? In the winter only or would be fine for RRs that hibernate through the cold stuff?

    I am assuming that because oilman advertises it here, that some forum members use this stuff in their bikes? I'm really asking because I have always been a good boy and followed the manual (strictly - after a trackday I trot off and buy 4 x 1L Castrol Power 1 5w-40 because you can't get it in a 4L tub), and I have always wondered if was being a complete punter. I know I'd probably be fine with any fully synthetic 5w-40 e.g. Opie have a deal on where you get 6L of Fuchs for same price as 4 x 1L Castrol.

    Can anyone clarify?

    Cheers

    Rick

    10w is worse for cold start but personally I don't do that many cold starts, I tend to either go long distances and or go on track where the stability of the oil is important. From other Opie posts, there is in in-depth one on here. I'm fairly sure that 10w40 is going to be pretty good for that scenario.

    I'm only taking advantage of the deal, I normally have Motul Ester-based 300V 4T 5w40.
