Oh dear...another oil thread on the interwebs..lol

A lot of people use Rotella in their bikes. As long as you change your oil frequently enough it works ok.

I'm partial to Amsoil. Get your "dealers certificate" and you'll get a good price on a quality synth oil.

I tell everyone that during breakin use the cheapest oil you can find. Change it at about 200 miles, again at about 800 mile and again at about 1500 miles with a filter change on the 200 and 1500 mile change. On the last oil change put in your preferred high quality oil.

Motorcycle specific oil IS NOT snake oil. Automotive oils have modifiers that our wet clutches do not like. The oils are slippery and make clutches slip.
