First of all I want to thank chris for starting the origional thread and putting us all on the road to a happier motor, his information was an eye opener to me and is a great guy to talk to.
First the Bell ray oil, after talking with chris and blackstone labs this oil which I thought to be a good oil, is good for nothing except weed killer or use in your lawnmower.The wear additives (Mag,phos,zinc) are low and the viscosity was within range but low as well, the sample from my LTR shows some flags and concerns first the silica limit is alarmingly high caused from dirt getting past the airfilter, which in turn has caused high wear metals present as the oil is more like liquid sandpaper. Sodium is also high which is an indication of either grease left over from manufacture assembly (engine has low hours) or coolant entering lubrication system. Fuel dilution is also high which dropped viscosity to around the 20w area also increasing wear, this is either from my sampling technique of letting the engine idle to bring oil up to temp or a rich condition or other fuel system problem, only further sampling to create a trend will determine.
The klotz oil looks very good, wear additives are high and viscosity is good, this oil is a keeper. The raptor also has high silica do to poor air filtration,causing some high wear metals present, the sodium level is also high, this is where it was helpfull to have sent a sample of virgin oil in as without that sample the high sodium reading would have pointed to a coolant leak, but the virgin sample contains sodium as a detergent so no issue there, all in all the raptor looks ok the high wear limits could also be due to both engines being new and neither have had alot of oil changes.
Bottom line is this is great info for me, needless to say I will be getting rid of my K&N airfilters and draining the bell ray oil on friday and switching to klotz in both bikes and will continue sampling to protect my investment.
