Autozone carries Mobil 1 Racing 4T 10-40 for around $9.99/qt. at times. That is where I get my oil. Cycle Gear had the same oil on special one day for $11.99/qt. ?!

I think he means Honda of Houston at 290 and West rd. Its over no the south west side of the intersection behind the Honda auto dealer you won't miss it.

Re: cheapest place/brand of moto specific oil

Sorry, I forgot about that there is two on West road. I meant Northwest Honda on West & 45N.

I have heard of guys running Shell Rotella Synthetic, the same stuff diesel pickups run in their bikes. Has anyone on here done this? Does it mess up the clutch plates on a sportbike?

I use it and have been pretty happy with it. Shifts smooth, runs great, and best of all it's like 15 bucks for a big jug!

There are lots of sportbikes running Shell Rotella Synthetic (Including mine). Never had a problem with the clutch, or anything mechanical.

Around $ 15 / Gallon at Wally world.
