Timing Belt

Hey guys wonder if you can help, i own a 2000 uk turbo classic, how often does the timing belt need changing mines on 60k and i believe it was changed on 30k.

Also my mates gonna service it - whats the best oil to use is 5w 40 okay or would you recommend a different blend. Also what make would you recommend ?

Re: Timing Belt

Hi lee,always ran mine on 15w50 (silkolene at first but now motul 300v)car had 26,000mile on it when i bought it-got 57,000mile now-never had an ounce of engine trouble and it literally uses no oil-seriously recommend motul to anyone though it is pricey.
Best sealant used to date- Fourstar ultimate paint protection *Now discontinued* Rebranded as sonus SFX4 paint sealant-Try some ya wont be dissapointed.
