I'll have to have a look behind the guard on my XCA! Interesting distribution of insect strikes especially at the bottom of the radiator looking as though the airflow is getting under the guard?
I donít think the stuff is coming under the guard, more like itís coming through the fairly large holes in the guards. Prior to the 900 I had several 800ís, all with rad guards and canít say there was ever much debris in the rad. ( note to self, must remove rad guards on a regular basis and not leave them for another two years!)

Though the post is regarding the 900 which has 2 radiators sat apart more in line with the fork legs and not directly in line with the front mudguard like the 800.

Though off topic my 800XRt radiator never gets anywhere like that, possibly due to the front fender extender fitted from day one doing what it's designed for.. :002:

If the oil's coming out golden you could "recycle" it in your Toyota.

Haha, that's an interesting thought....Would the friction modifiers in the motorcycle oil have a detrimental effect on the Toyota engine?

Your money but you are wasting it. There is absolutely no technical reason to change oil that frequently all you are doing is creating additional waste oil in the world for no mechanical benefit.

Wrong, come October the tenps here will be dropping and according to triumphs factory service manual I should be switching back to 10w-40 oil regardless of the miles I have driven.

Also, buying this motorcycle used I have no idea of the service history. The oil I just drained could have been the original oil for all I know. A couple of early oil changes to make sure all the residual old nasty oil is gone is well worth the cost for my peace of mind.

As for wasting oil, my other vehicle is a gas guzzleing 97 toyota land cruiser that burns about a quart of oil every 1,000 mile. Even if I do perform a couple of early oil changes I am still saving loads of petroleum by riding and using the motorcycle instead of theToyota. This is half the reason I own a motorcycle.
