Title: A65 oil
Post by: Old Biker on 04 August, 2017, 19:37:58
Hi All

Advice required about the oils members are using in their unit twins, are you using modern equivalents or do you stick to the originally recommended oil if still available?

Cheers, Old Biker

I also use Morris 20/50, in my A10, and have done for many years.

Looks like Morris 20/50 then for the next oil change then, can I also ask which oils you use for the primary drive, gearbox and forks so that I have a complete set!

Cheers again, Old Biker

Hi Old Biker,
                  If you decide on a 20W/50 Wilko have gallon cans for 15, SE spec so good for vehicles built before 1979 so okay for your A65:

I'm afraid the 20/50 does everything for me including gearbox and forks!
