This will be my first oil change on my 04 DL650, as I get it ready for winter. I picked up a filter yesterday, some seafoam for the tank, I'll clean it up and swap it with the snowblower, and put a battery tender on it. Because of the other stuff that will be piled in front of the bike, it will likely sit undisturbed until the first robin arrives. This Strom has about 12000kms on it and in my hands I anticipate about 4000kms/year.
Now, without stirring up a monstrous best-oil debate, when I walk into Canadian Tire tomorrow, what do you recommend for brand and grade of oil?
