As all of us XR owners know, the XR is a noisy beast. All that valve noise coming out of the top end is normal (to a certain degree, of course), so we are used to it. I had my 03 apart to put new valves in, and I decided to switch brands of oil I had been using Amsoil for a couple years and thought it was quite good. But I switched to Lucas 20W50 synthetic motorcycle oil after seeing it at the auto parts store. I've always liked Lucas products so I figured I'd give it a try. I read a couple reviews from Harley owners, they said their bikes were amazingly quiet and ran cooler with the Lucas, sounded good to me.

So I go the bike back together, put 1.5 qts. of the Lucas in, and fired it up. Let it warm up a bit, and what the heck, I could barely hear the engine running. Took it for a ride and not only was it virtually silent, but it ran approximately 25* cooler (the 277 kit makes it run hot).

 

Longer term update on this oil.  Fantastic. :thumbsup:   Lower operating temps, no foaming of the oil after a hard ride.  The bike is quieter, even with a skid plate I installed the same time I put the top end back together and put in the Lucas.  The clutch is behaving perfectly, no issues there, it is wet clutch compatible (JASO) and works very well.  After a couple hundred miles of use I can say I highly recommend the Lucas synthetic, especially if you are running a big bore kit.  At ~$10 per quart it is one of the better bargains out there.
