Hello to all riders,
Im using GTR 1400 2018 spec
I have 2 things check n get opinion from you all.

On my 1st service kawasaki mechanic recommend me Ipone 10w-40w fully.

1. Day before yesterday i went to another bike workshop to change my front and rear tyres. I met few elder mechanics in the shop. Since im new to GTR so i take few opinions from the elder mechanics. 1 of that is about engine oil. They told to use semi synthetic and not fully.

They said fully synthetic will burn my clutch plate faster. Im abit surprise.

2. I bought brand new bike and now its 3month old. No modification on front suspension and handle bar. Using slip on two brothers. My front tyre exhausted 1 side which is right side(throttle side) more. The shop tyre man didn't give a proper explanation for it.

Any of u experience this before?
Why my tyre exhausted 1 side more then other side...?

Thanks in advance.

Full synthetic will not “burn your clutch” and you should avoid hiring anyone who says that. My ZX14 has had nothing nut full syn in the sump and at 78,000 miles, the original clutch is still good. Sounds like someone trying to sell what they have on hand.

Not only that, but the standard for synthetic oil has been lowered. To get the good stuff, look for the word “ester” on the label. If you don’t see it, the oil may be the cheaper stuff.
And there’s no standard for % in semi-syn or synthetic blend. Could be as little as 10%.
