Just another oil report
I occasionally get oil reports just to assure everything is OK inside the engine. Recently I did a long trip to So. Cal. and rather than short change the 5k mile intervals I normally use, I decided to let it run and ended up with 7700 miles on the oil so I did a report on it. It's attached.
Basic summary, everything was fine even at 7700 miles. Kawasaki schedules oil changes at 7600 mile intervals and it seems to be about right. I do use full synthetic Mobil 1 4T oil.
"KEN: Wear metals look great. The universal averages for this type of engine are based on just under 4,000 miles on the oil. You ran longer and got better-than-average metals -- that's excellent. This engine is wearing with the best of them! The slightly thin viscosity is no problem at all, and the small amount of fuel dilution didn't hurt anything, either. No other contamination was found, and insolubles read very low, showing low levels of oxidation and excellent oil filtration. This all adds up to an excellent report! We'll look forward to building trends."
