New C90 owner!

Post by Mtaylor » Sun Jul 08, 2018 9:20 pm

Apologies as I sure what Im about to ask has been asked 1000 times before.
2 quick questions.
I have a 1986 (C plate) C90 not electric start (only details I have until collection)
What battery should i be looking for? Seems a bit of a mine field out there.....
Finally a recemendation on engine oil would be superb. I’ve seen suggestions of 10w40...??
And a very daft question I assume I can run on unleaded. I was told by a friend I would need to use an additive in addition to the fuel??
Apologies and Many thanks all
😊😊😊

Hi welcome to the club ,batteries are now sold with the acid in them ,any motorbike dealer should be able to get you the right one , the bike does not need it to run.for oil see the post above .Petrol ordinary unleaded or super is ok no additives .

Put they year of your bike in your details and a rough location.
