suitable oil for a triumph tiger cub

5 posts in this topic

Hi guys, i'm about to fit my clutch plates - using an eight plate clutch upgrade.  My experience with more modern bikes is to soak the plates before fitting.  As my engine is likely to sit on the bench for some time as i'm keen to do this.  Consequently, i'm seeking advice on what oil to use?  I'm not too fussed about price i'd rather run with something that doesn't encourage slippage.

Chris at Meriden Off Road advised me to use straight 30 for everything on a cub.

This is what I've always used and my cub runs beautifully

Hi Samwisemcg and thanks for your helpful reply,  I decided to buy exactly what it said in the manual and picked up a ltr of SAE 20 & SAE 30 off the villiers stand at Stafford yesterday.  I've yet to buy engine oil but will use silkolene as i've used it before and rate OPIE oils as their prices are competitive.
