What's the difference between "Break in Oil", "Mineral Oil" and "Regular Oil"??
I never heard of "mineral oil" until I read few posts on the forum. I also read that some motorcycles are shipped with a special "break in oil".
I don't know if they are the same or if they apply to the Z900. I was going to change the oil on my Z900 (200 miles on the odometer) to see if the theory that the engine is broken in after just a mere 20+ mikes and that the OEM oil. Some even state the oil came out like water and full of metal shavings. I figured I have nothing to lose as changing the oil with regular Kawasaki oil is the same as what's in the engine from the factory - right? Now I'm not so sure.
I'm second guessing the idea to do this as I have also read that the OEM break in should be done for proper break in of the engine. If there are some special properties of the oil from the factory, then I could adversely impact the break in of my engine. Well that is the fear anyway.
Sometimes to many opinions cloud logical thinking. lol
