Both of the above mentioned are good.

I use the Shell Rotella T too myself. I buy it at Walmart most of the time, or AutoZone. Walmart is usually a dollar cheaper a gallon, around $9 per gallon which you cannot beat.

I know several big time engine builders, especially on the ATV side with the LTR which is basically the same engine that all swear by the Rotella T.

Has anyone tried the Lucas Oil in their bike?

Tried it in my last bike(KX450), bad clutch slip and couldn't get it into neutral. Thought I had maybe accidentally gotten the auto kind, but when I got home and dug through the trash there it was 10w40 Semi.syn motorcycle formula,safe for wet clutch. Rotella back in and problem solved, I even tried a few other brands(Silkolene,Bel Ray,Motul) synthetic and semi.syn to try to duplicate the problem I had with Lucas, nope it was the Lucas.

went from motul 300v 20 bucks a liter, which i changed every 3-4 rides or 6-8 hours to rotella 15-40 change it every 2 rides and although it comes out really dark, it seems to be fine and cheap:)
