That's so nice you took the time to troll old post comments to offer your profound opinion.
What I offered wasn't opinion it was fact. Everyone knows that a 4 banger is referring to a 4 cylinder engine not a 4 stroke engine.....except possibly you

I'm so happy for you that you had such a feel good moment. I can call something anything I want. Give it a rest son. Your repeating of the same comment somebody already did weeks ago is useless so why don't you do some expert commentary on your Rotella oil you use and how big your tires are. You have your entire life to be a jerk and impress people with your useless comments so why not take the rest of the month off?

I'm very happy that you actually learned something today. Sure you can call something anything you want but we can also make you look like a fool for doing it in a forum that probably 99% knows what a 4 banger was. I'd suggest making your foolish comments where you might be able to impress someone that doesn't know anything about what you're talking about. I might be a jerk but at least I'm a jerk that knows what a 4 banger is and you're one that obviously doesnt

That really bothers you doesn't it and look in the mirror before you call somebody a fool. Don't take things so damn seriously I only used the term in a literal sense as a synonym (if you know what that means) which is a common practice and so need to get into your of grammar rant! Actually I did learn something from you today. I learned that here are some remarkably annoying people in this world that don't know what a synonym is and you sir take first prize. Thanks for helping me understand that. Now give it a rest already son.

4 Banger is not a synonym for 4 stroke engine 4 banger is a synonym for a 4 cylinder engine, so it looks like you don't know what a synonym is either

Im trying to see things from your perspective but concluded that I couldn't possibly get my head that far up my butt.

Come on guys. No need for this. We are only talking about oil, not the undoing of capitalism for s Democratic socialist.

Ease up, we’re all brothers.

Run what you like, any quality oil will be more than sufficient provided you regularly maintain your equipment and run a quality filter.

Re: Engine Oil Options

OP:

If you can, consider adding Rotella 5-40W. It's all I, and lots of folks, run in our powersports stuff. Then, since it's so cheap, we change it whenever we want too. You'll note this plays well with the well known fuel dilution problem /small crank case capacity issue. Personally I drain and refill the crank every three-four full riding days, (for me a riding trip) and swap filters at fall storage. I don't get to go out often enough, but if I did I'd change filters in a semi-relaxed fashion. Something like 75 hours or every third oil swap.

I you really want to talk oil I suggest you start with the BITOG and TBN forums. Some very insightful and talented folks there. You'll also find a lot of respect for T6 there.

Best of luck to you, - d

Hartman:

"In a literal sense" means "literally". Synonyns would include "really" and "actually". You sure you mean to say you used it literally? Cause well, that ain't helping your explanation much.

So we're clear, and because one of does know, a synonym is a word with a similar meaning. Words like "wrong", "incorrect" and "mistaken" as examples. A "4 banger" will never will be a synonym for a 4 cycle. So yea, not a synonym. Could you perhaps have meant idiom? It still would have been used incorrectly, but American english allows a lot of latitude in how we use idioms. Not enough for that lapse, but I suppose you could at least have used your "it means whatever I mean it to too" defense for an idiom. But then I'm not sure one can string the words "literally" and "idiom" in the same sentence and have a well considered sentence. (maybe this one?)

Now I'll agree you need not have been busted, at least at first, but it happens in an open forum, and grace is usually a good thing towards those not being charitable. In fact, I make mistakes all the time. I'm sure I have in this post too. I usually response with something like "My Bad!" or maybe even "Silly Me", and of course the time tested "Yep, I Screwed Up". Any of the above would probably have been better choices for your response. IMHO.

Meanwhile, in my experience digging myself in deeper with even more poorly considered statements, and/or denigrating fellow members intellect and the like seems to oft result in, well, this kind of post. Literally.
