Castrol Synthetic

Recommended Posts

I am going to do my 1000 mile service, and thinking of going to Castrol Synthetic. Castrol is easy to find here. Anyone try it? 10-30 or 20-50?

I recommend using dino juice, non-synthetic oil, until the 4,000 mile mark. It takes engines a while to fully break-in, and non-synthetic oil will give the best break-in. There are probably millions of opinions on this, but my outlook is that it cannot hurt to go a little longer before going to synthetic.

I don't know if it is contained in the links but castrol full synthetic is not supposed to be as true a sysnthetic as Mobil 1 and Rotella. I have used synthetic from day one in my DR650 and no problems.
