    There are threads on oils. There is an air cooled specific oil available at a cost. Recommendation is that the oil should have a zinc content.

    Another tip is to fill the oil filter before installing, just helps the engine to get to oil pressure quicker at start up
    If you do not run the engine regularly, it's also good to drop the oil after a long run to minimise contaminants that can settle over time.

    Last quote for an oil change was $150, I nearly fell over. A guy I go camping with changed the oil in his diesel 4wd his father bought him, ruined three(3) good t shirts doing it. They were his dads too.o_O
