Street bike you say? Whatever's cheaper...

I have used 300V and felt no comparable difference to Lucas or Mobil One oil. The best oil is one you change frequently.

Riding a race bike is an art - a thing that you do because you feel something inside.

He sorta told you....whichever is cheaper. You will not be able to tell the difference and as long as you change regularly neither will your bike. (to sum up what Mott said)

300v road racing is for onroad bikes.
The other is for offroad (dirtbikes etc)


castrol isnt a real synthetic. They use a marketing loophole. Its listed as a class III. which means it is derived from mineral oil. The loophole comes from thwm containing a synthetic additive.
who knows what mobil 1 is they don't say.

Motul is class V. 100% synthetic. Plus 300v is double ester.

Ive always used Motul 300V in my 2012 R6 since new after break in period was over. I pretty much just stuck with Motul for all my fluids. I get a half decent price on the stuff, I like running full synthetic in these high reving motors and I've had no issues and bike seems to like it.

use the 7100 for a street bike. Well unless you like changing your oil frequently with the 300v. (every 200-500 miles)

what does Ti valves have to do with anything? One valve costs the same as a 300v oil change $79.
