Spectro Answers Your Oil Questions

spectroOil is still one of the black arts. There are a lot of speculation and a lot of questions about what goes into your motorcycle. At Darwin Cycles we use Spectro because the quality of the product. We spoke with Rollin Karoll of Spectro for some additional clarification.

Question 1: Can viscosity grades be mixed?

    Spectro Answer: Yes, you can and no harm will be done. Topping up with 10w40, if its all you have available, will not injure the 20w50 in your crankcase. It will, however, lower the overall viscosity of your crankcase oil to a certain extent. This will cause no harm to your motorcycle. Likewise, adding a 20w50 product to 10w40 will slightly increase the overall viscosity in your crankcase. Again, no harm will occur.

Question 2: Can you explain multi-weight lubricants?
