167000km,`83 engine, nice.
at the piston/cylinder/pistonring area you have about 300°C, at the main bearings about 180°C.
in this temperature range the lubrication is perfect. but the hot oil (hot in the oilpan, more than 150°C - up to 165°C) is aging fast and loosing the qualities, soon.

: I don't have a GS, but a 83 R100 drove it 167.000 km.
: About the oil temp. I always thought that at 150 Degrees C. the oil didn't lubricate anymore, and the oil would oxydize very fast
