Thank God when its about food there is an old roman saying "de gustibus non est disputandum" we badly need something similar for engines...
Btw I strongly recommend to wash your hands when coming from the ///kitchen/// to work on your bike. Imagine you could contaminate your engine oil with coconut oil just by touching the dipstick accidentially on the wrong end :lol: :lol: :lol:


@newt I just wanted to support your first post. I too do hate oil at least in a forum.

The UK market in rape oil is really booming. There are cold pressed extra virgin rape seed oils that are finally overturning the must use olive oil mentality in fancy cooking. Rape is a fine multipurpose oil where as olive can yield poor results for frying and will generally smell very unpleasant when heated to high temperatures.

Try sesame oil perfect for a little oriental nutty flavour.

Sacrificing that one C90 has probably done more for the C90 than any thing since 'The Purple Helmets'

It's a funny old world isn't it? :D :D :D
You forgot something. To see most of them ending up in yorkshire :lol:
