CRB Plus Vs Active 4T

August 9th, 2010 No comments

I had been using CRB Plus for my Thunderbird bike for the engine compartment and the clutch case. For the gear section I am using a 90 grade oil.  Lately, I found that the clutch case was getting overheated within few minutes.  When I enquired about this to my mechanic, he advised me to try Active 4T oil.  Later that day, the oil from the clutch case was drained and refilled with Active 4T. Wow, the heat dynamics is much better now.  I am able to touch the case with my bare foot even after 1 hour of driving.  Thanks to Active 4T.
