    Hey,

    I use both kawi v-twins on my wb and rider and i'm wondering whats the difference between a 10w-30 and a 30 wt oil? The manual says either is fine but Ive never seen a straight SAE 30 oil at Canadian tire or where I buy my oil in bulk (costco). Can some one tell me what the difference is and if it will affect engine longevity/performance?

    Cheers
    Jeff

    It's good stuff.
    The "oil rating" is not the real news on this page.
