Default The Big Oil Thread!!!! The Only Oil Thread!!!!

What are you using? Synthetic? Suzuki? Mobile 1?



EDIT:FROM BIG B
Seems this is a very popular topic "on any moto forum".......so I am gonna merge and sticky this very fun and informative topic. Any more threads that are started about oil, will either be merged to here or deleted.

I use the Suzuki Syn 10W-40, but that's just because I'm a brand whore.

Default Wow, another oil thread!

Nuttin better than another long discussion on oil.....

I've used Spectro Synthetic 10W/40, Amsoil synth 10W/40, Shell Rotella Synthetic - 5W/40, and currently trying Shell Rotella Dino 15W/40. Interesting...the 15W/40 Shell has given the best, smoothest shifting, mostly eliminating the "clunk" into 1st gear. Also the least expensive...

My intent here was not to create debate. Just to survey members about what oil they are using. Nothing more.
