What kind of oil do you guys use for your bikes? I was thinking of switching to a full synthetic as I did with my mustangs. My first oil change I did with the bike I used the Yamalube normal stuff. I ride pretty hard most of the time and I think I would benefit from the things synthetic offers over the conventional.

For those that do run synthetic, which brand do u use? I used to use Amsoil only in my cars...

I did a search of the forums and went thru a few pages and couldnt find a post about this, which is why Im asking.


Thanks

Patrick

Instead of typing in "oil" type in "amsoil" or another brand. You will get a ton of threads on it. I use Mobil 1 moto and a K&N filter.

just go through this 15 page thread on what a few of us use

http://www.r6-forum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=58719

I use Amsoil full synth 10w-40 with amsoil filter.

the main thing is you change it every 3000miles. clean oil is key, i can't stress that enough. regardless of what oil you use.

oil is basically politics. everyone has their own opinion on which is best.
