Using M1-108 and some Bosche that cross references that... If someone other than Pep-Boys would carry the Purolator I would try one of those too. (especially if it's cheaper) Maybe I can get my oil changed for under $10...

WIX, Purolator, Bosche, Mobil1 and AC/Delco are good filters, prefer any of those to a Fram.

I've been using the Mobil1 M1-110 along with Motul 5100 oil on my street bike (about $35 total).

The trackbike gets the Fram filter and O'Reilly Oil (about $13.00 total!). It gets an oil change after every track day.

The Fram's are pretty inexpensive. But, this makes me want to use the Mobil1 (I've read this elsewhere too)

"Newer high-performance filters like the Bosch and the Mobil 1 really are better and not more expensive. Instead of traditional paper filtration, they use a synthetic or mixed paper/synthetic medium that removes up to 98% of 8 to 10 micro particles, where conventional premium paper filters only remove 70% to 90%. "

thats nutz i would want the best of oils in my track bike i mean thats the bike sitting at crazy lean angels while sitting at 12000 rpm and getting torchered just seems smarter...

It normally costs me bettween 30-40 bucks for ME to change my oil...NOt bad...

I'm always skeptical when the phrase 'up to' is used. It can also mean that it will only remove 50%, but hey every once in a while our quality is good 'nuff that we get 98%.

That's just me though. I trust no one.

I won't disagree with you because this is a much debated topic in all circles of racing, auto & motor.

The regular oil definately isn't going to break down in 100 or 200 miles so it's fine for my t-bike. Daily rider is a different since it has to deal with dirtier conditions and going 2000 miles between changes.

Here's a good link on Oil if anyone wants to check it out:

I wont disagree with you to a extent but ME personaly i would use the best of the best in both....I dont have a dedicated track bike but if i did i would still use the best of the best (in relitive terms no im not going to pay 20bucks a quart thats just plain stupid).....Just becouase of all the stress on the motor...

Now me i ride hard on the street too the bike doesnt really see the lean angles but it def gets verticle lol...So i really have no choice but to use good stuff if i want my motor to last...where as my dad he has a bmw and uses 98cent oil and has been doing that for the last 81,000 miles lol but his bike never goes over 6 grand.....

For me i live by the motto you gotta pay to play...but i do understand where your comeing from.
