I know this thread of discussion sort of, well, drifted into the semi-insulting at an earlier stage, but now that we're back on track, what about synthetic oils in the V-Strom? I just did an oil change using regular Suzuki oil and wondered about the extra expense for synthetic. Is it worth it? What experiences have people had? Does it really improve shifting?
I come from the restoration world before this. And once you made your old Brit bike leak-free, not an easy thing, but possible with modern gaskets and good machining, then synthetic was the way to go, even on 35 year-old machines.
