    Hello! Would like to ask is 10w60 too thick for pitbike engine?
    Its 155cc Zongshen
    I found 4 litre bottle of Ipone Katana offroad 10w60 so would like to try
    Could it cause some damage?

    Use 10w-40 like all pitbike engines, mineral oil is best, never use fully synthetic oil as its no good for clutch plates.
    You can use part synthetic but make sure it motorcycle specific oil as it will have additives to make it suitable for wet clutches...
