Multistrada 950 - Main Chat board / Engine case paint wearing off
« Last post by rpmbaz on Yesterday at 11:11:35 am »
Iíve just got a new 950s and someone suggested I get some engine case covering done before the lovely gold paint starts to wear off where my boots rub against the casing . Can someone recommend the best film protection product to use for this .

You don't have a set of channel locks? That's what I used to remove my factory filter.

When they are stuck that tight, regular filter spanners sometimes just don't cut it as the metal can of the filter distorts before the seal breaks. If that is the case, you can stab it with a screw driver to get it off. Dramatic, but effective. Remember to offset the screwdriver or you just hit the internal bolt.

Thanks gents.  BTW ... is this one of the better oils during interim do it yourself oil changes ? 

MOTUL 300V 15w 50 - Race full Sythetic ?
Depends what you mean by "better". It is certainly one of the more expensive oils you can buy, but race oil is for racing and if you are not racing, then it is not doing the job it was designed for.

If you ride normally and are changing the oil at or before scheduled service intervals (or every year, which ever is sooner), then any quality branded oil that has no additives will do the job perfectly well.
Better quality oil and oil with greater synth content will last longer before it needs to be changed, but if you are changing it at the service interval anyway, then it is not giving you much extra protection. That said, given how small the price difference is between the cheap stuff and good high quality branded oil when spread out between changes, it is not an area worth trying to save a few pennies on.
