to those wondering...yes castrol srf is by far the best available to us regular joes. as pete says its the gold standard it is also priced as liquid gold. I have had good times with amsoil and motul...they however are not comparable to srf its apples and planets comparison. If I bought SRF and my wife found the receipt she would flip...she already was surprised by the price of my oil


If you have to have the best it is castrol srf hands down

Looks like I'll be getting the SRF then.

It depends on if you havent seperated your clutch and if you are doing a full flush with a tech II. Have you replaced your lines already?

Good choice I am jealous. Still need to bleed the fluid after a good track day.

Yea I've separated them - but I'll probably do the clutch fluid too while I'm at it. And I've replaced the lines already.

cant imagine the clutch needs liquid gold. i use three motul bottles per every fluid change. thats a flush a bleed and another bleed pretty sure it would only take 2 if you could see the difference in color when flushing it out. I dont have a clutch tho.

pretty sure srf comes in litre size. never seen it smaller

They don't come any better than Bruce and I like your choices for pads and fluid.

Nevermind. I misspoke earlier. About the same price at Apex ($1000ish a pair). Apparently the price I saw ($500ish) was for a single rotor not the pair. This doubles when you add it to the cart as the minimum purchase is 2 rotors. Back to looking at the DBA 5000's I guess :/
