Episode 6 – Part 2: The Devil Is In The Details (Oil Change)

In Episode 6 (Part 1) – The Devil Is In The Details (Sprint Filter) Brock ended the segment with the question, ”Are we going to pick up 5 horsepower with an oil change… or just half a horsepower?” after discussing molasses and sawdust oil comparisons in the past. Our 2017 GSX-R1000, now officially named “Gixzilla” in a Brock’s Performance facebook contest, is showing great consistency on the dyno and is ready for her first oil and filter change. Brock goes through his normal, painstaking detail to keep the results as nonbiased as possible – while passing along a few hard earned ‘life lessons’ along the way. What will Gixzilla make after the addition of Alisyn less than 0 weight full synthetic motor oil with our proven Petron Plus oil additive compared to the previous oil? Check out the results now.
