What type of oil do you use ( OIL CHANGE)

Changing oil!!! What brand,and what weight do you suggest.

Hopp, I use Motul 3000. I think it's 20-50. :)

Ohhhh no you didn't ask the oil question did you ? :)

I used 10w40 standard motor oil for breakin. Getting ready to switch to Mobile 1 15w50. Its not so much the brand but how often you change your oil IMHO.


Amsoil 10W40 full synthetic motorcycle specific. Really good oil and not too expensive. 'Nuff said.

Peace Eh - P.Z.

I guess that did try doing a search first, this topic rates up there with the grey wire one.

Yamalube all the way.

i went from Yamalube to Mobile 1 15-50. I like the new oil and seemed to help my clutch action??? Mabey just me :)

this ugly topic ranks up there w/ politics and religion. There has been all out wars on oil, kind of like Sceptor and the Power Now thingy.

Mobil 1 15W-50 red cap ONLY.

DO NOT USE ANY OTHER Mobil 1 weight.

For break in or cold temps: Castrol GTX.

Spectro 4 changed virtually every ride.


Amsoil, motorcycle specific, synthetic 10W40. I will start using Amsoil 0W40 synthetic motorcycle oil during spring and fall...

A little Wesson Behind the gears and man shes looking real good

Oil oh oil your talking about.


PavalCod told me his factory tuners told him not to worry about oil its all a myth. Bikes now adays dont use oil, the metal the engine is made of sweats while under extreme heat and thats how it gets lubber-cated.

I serous, I heard its made from some stuff they got off the flying saucers when they crashed in area 51....

Outside of that I am a castrol loyalist I use Castrol Act>Evo 20-50 Non synth

Only thing on synth oils (Be Warned) is to get an synth that is non energy absorbing.

Castrol GTX changed after every full day of riding!

Motul 300V competition 15W50. Change about 800-1200 km.

Amsoil motorcycle 10-40. Change after every 2 rides.

What type of oil do i use?? ..............engine oil. :):D

This only gets evil once the debate of synthetic vs. 'normal' oil kicks in. :)

Not evil, worn out. :)

Yeah right ... tell me what do you think sysntetic or mineral. My dealer said that ........ hahahahahahah

:):D :D :D :D :D :D :D;):D :D

From the VFR webpage... beg pardon if you've seen it. :)

Are you sure you want to use synthetic oil?

Beware of synthetic oil, it can do terrible things to you and your beloved motorcycle. It will not only leak out of your engine faster than you can put it in, but it will also cause your oil filter to clog and implode, dumping debris and dirt into your lubrication system. It also will make every part of your bike permanently slippery because of its linear molecular chain dispersion action. Then it will leak onto your kickstand causing it to retract automatically, dropping your bike on the ground! But that's not all... Synthetic oil will round off your gears and spin your bearings. It will Also splatter onto your seat causing your girlfriend to fall off in the apex of a turn and she'll never ride with you again. Synthetic oil coats Your sight window and your timing window with a whitish pro-emulsification additive that is both non-removable and highly corrosive. Synthetic oil will completely leak onto the ground overnight and your dog will drink it and die. Synthetic oil will wear out your tires and make your battery leak. It will give you the desperate need to urinate after you put your full leathers on and then jam your zippers shut. It will contaminate your gasoline causing your bike to stall on railroad tracks and accelerate uncontrollably near police cars. It will make it rain during rallies and on weekends. It will lubricate four timing belts causing them to jump teeth and break your valves to bits. Synthetic oil chemically weakens desmodromic valves and causes the clearances to change every six miles. Then it melts the black soles of your riding boots night before you walk across your new carpeting. While riding past groups of attractive women it will cause both of your handlebar grips to slip off at the same time so you smash your windscreen with the bridge of your nose. It also causes your swingarm to crack, your studs to break, and your rotors to warp, and then it voids your warranty by changing your odometer reading to 55,555. It also dries out your wetclutch and wets your dryclutch. It makes your clutch slave cylinder seal fail in the heaviest traffic on the hottest day of the year while putting an angry wasp in your helmet for good measure. Synthetic oil hides your 13mm socket and puts superglue on your earplugs. Synthetic oil will scratch your faceshield and make your gloves shrink two sizes night before trackday. Synthetic oil stole your neutral and sold it to the Chinese for $1.25. Synthetic oil will make you grow a tail. Synthetic oil will write long crazy e-mails to your Internet friends and then sign your name at the bottom.

Damn synthetic oil.

Well the debate might be worn out, but the oil itself is apparently quite evil! :)

Peace Eh - P.Z.
