PostSubject: Purchasing Oil from Gulf Western Oil   Sat May 29 2010, 19:08


RossT, a member of NSWR, is associated with Gulf Western Oil at St Marys. Gulf Western Oil have created a group account for NSW Riders members only. Members may purchase a range of quality motorcycle oils at prices less that we can otherwise get from general retailers. More importantly, the oils are deemed better than what is generally available.

N.B. Gulf Western Oil has moved from Penrith to St Marys. New address is shown below.

Ross previously gave a presentation to a group of NSWR members. The pictures taken appear below.

I made a purchase several weeks ago.

Now running Protecta Ultra in 3 bikes and all is good.

Plus i am sleeping well at night knowing that I am not paying $15/litre for a sticky label.

Ross has opened an opportunity here folks!

Yes thanks very much Ross. I look forward to using your oil in the near future!

Now all we have to do is organize some official NSW Riders garage days Smile.

Unfortunately I cannot host anything at the moment because my garage has too much stuff in it! But in the coming months I hope to find the time to clear this out and make room for such events as well as my poor Mini.

Hi Erica, may be we should organize again with Ross in front of GF parking places on Week end. Will get some volunteers to help and an idea about $20 /bike for up to 4 liters bring your own oil filter and bike. Will try to setup BBQ.

If not it will be on my double garage in Kellyville, do let me know to get numbers as I know one person wanted

Volunteers:

- Will ?

Interested names put on the list if possible end of 26th or 27 th June.

- David

Sure Kris I would be only to happy to help where I can.

I can also bring my Warren & Brown torque wrench(s) with me so there are no mistakes with overtightening the sump plugs.

Oh yes and don't forget you will need a new washer for the sump plug as well. So bring one of these along with your filter.

I love your garage BTW I wish mine was like that!

Haggis, normally 20 litres and over is free...but that is for trade price.

I ended up setting the price for NSW Riders at our Distributor rate, which is way lower and doesn't have enough in it to cover freight.

This price rate is normally reserved for distributors and major retailers buying over $100,000 per month.

I.m sure Kris was happy to pay $10 rather than have to drive from Kellyville to Penrith and back.

Yooo... found out If you are going to purchase over $100 than delivery is free... within Metro ... make sure you team out with your mates or buy another 20L for your Car or for Mum cars...

When I work out what I saved yesterday that's another front tyre on my bike .
So paying a small delivery fee is well worth it or do as I did and pick it up.

Are the Gulf Western Oils JASO T903 MA certified or not ? And I need 10W-30 but not Energy Conserving.

Adam, speak to RossT, he'll sort you out with the best oil for your bike.

I've been using the Protecta Ultra for the last 6000km (2 oil changes) without issues.

Adam...energy conserving means friction modified=major clutch slip.

Protecta Ultra is not friction modified and is my recommendation for your CBR.

I use it in both my R1 and VMax with excellent results and far higher oil pressure retention than the overpriced Motul which was in them when I bought them.

10W30 is too light for Australian conditions and will not give you enough film strength to protect from wear in our climate.

If you are ever riding down a European Autobarn or Japanese freeway at minus 15 degrees then 10W30 would be the right choice.

I was in a Yamaha dealer in Albury today buying some gloves and noticed that he had a range of Motul and Elf "bike oils" at between $70 and $90 per 4 litre pack and they were a lower spec. than products which we sell for about $30 per 5 litre.

They apply far higher margins to "bike oils" because it is a lower volume market and they assume that we will pay silly money to protect our toys.

I hate seing fellow riders get ripped off which is why I set up the NSW Riders COD account for your use.

PM me if you need more info.

I spoke with the Honda dealers today and they said the 10w40 is too thick for the new Honda engines that's why they using 10w30 specs for the 600s. Also because of the wet clutch I need a JASO MA specs oil.

Ross I'd be interested to learn your opinion regarding suitable oil for my bike.

I hear mention about synthetic and semi synthetic oils (at different stages of mileage), if you could shed any light on this I'd be interested also.

The Honda dealers are basing their comments on what is in the handbook.

All engine manufacturers are required to pass specific emmission tests before they can release new engines. To do this they use low viscosity oils which do provide a slight improvement in fuel efficiency, and therefore emmissions, but at the expense of engine wear. There have been a number of independent reports stressing the dangers of low viscosity oils.

Once the engines have passed their testing on a certain viscosity oil then they are required to recommend their ongoing use.

We also make a 10W30 so you are most welcome to use it but all my oil industry and bike experience says no.

A 10W30 will save you about 0.5 % fuel but slash your engine life by up to 30%...particularly if you get up the revs a bit.

Call me on 0427 323 305 if you want more in depth info.

I reckon I would agree with what Ross is saying, my gearbox would be still in 1 piece if the oil did it's job. I was using the lightest grade oil as recomended by Yamaha. (not Gulf Western).

The original problem seems to have been a worn selector part which then allowed for gears not engaging properly causing the big problem.

good info Ross - thanks.
Ill be switching to GWH too on the next service.
I wonder why we dont see more GWH on bike dealer shops, its like everyone only sells Motul/ Motorex/ Silkolene/ Shell/ Mobil. Maybe ppl only aware that GWH only sells cars lubricants?
