    I have been out and done about 25 trouble free miles on my Cruiser 39 today. I have the smoke about correct but not at 2.5 turns as suggested, mine is 1 turn out. I am guessing it's because I have Castrol XL 30 and Not 40 as I could not find any.
    So my question is what do others use?

    Also what are the tyre pressures as I can't find anything in the handbook.

    Thanks Ken
