How-To: Choose the Right Oils for Your Bike

6 months ago

Let’s face it, understanding the dos and don’ts of motorcycle maintenance can be like trying to learn a second language; especially when it comes to picking the right oils, lubricants, fluids, and sprays for your trusty machine. We like to keep things simple by sticking to a small selection of premium brands for all our moto maintenance. Swiss manufacturer, Motorex, has been in high rotation through our test bikes over the past few years, and while there are other options on the shelves, the depth of their range is hard to go past.

To make life easier for you, we’ve thrown together the Motorex products we currently have rotating through the Transmoto man cave.
