Synthetic oil. Which one

Not another oil thred. I've been using Amsoil 10-40 full synthetic, but the price is getting up there, especially when changing oil on 4 bikes. What other full synthic oils are you using? Any recommendations?

Givi crash guards, Suzuki handguards, Madstad bracket, Grip Puppies, mirror extensions, Suzuki tall touring seat, Dan Vessel skid plate and hiway pegs, Givi E21 side bags, Touratech side stand plate, tool tube, turn signal mod,

Yes it is another oil thread. The info you requested is already covered in the Big Oil thread at

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Please vote in the poll on what Strom(s) you have at
