Naa man Thats the oil you use in your blinkers to make them super bright. You might want to top that off though it's pretty cheap and a great way to look pimp at night.

come on ppl .... as long as it does not say energy conserving like this Energy20conserving20II on the bottle
you can use it.

if it states its MA rated thats means it was tested for motorcycles and is wet clutch capable.

MA2 is even better

i like mobile1 4t racing oil, amsoil, and i hear great stuff about shell's rotella, yes its a diesel oil that is MA rated and ppl love it. you can do the shell rotella15w40 15-40 conventional or the
t6 bottleT6 synthetic 10-40
what ever you end up picking as long as you change it often 2-3k conventional and 3-4k synthetic you bike will love you

let me know if i can help with anything else

I use mobile-1 in my race bike without any problems. Used it forever. Have also used many other types of oils and seen no difference. Pulled motor apart many times and everything looks great. My rule of thumb is the best oil is fresh oil. I change mine very often, way more than recommended

I use mobil r4t, i tried the shell rotella synth and motor started ticking. Switched back and it stopped. I know many people that use the rotella and have had no problems at all.

I use the diesel oil - works great and stays clean. I change the oil every 4k miles. I've been told not to use full synthetic unless I'm racing - and I'm not racing...

that is not true . u can go back and forth as u please. this was true wen synthetics were 1st introduced on the marked a long long time ago, it would cause bubbling in the oil in certain cases. not true any more.

you are using half synthetic half conv. by using castrol PART synthetic lol

article in Popular Mechanics...


Early synthetics got a bad reputation for leaking. This was because, despite the claims of the oil manufacturers, the seal-swell characteristics of the new synthetics were different from those of the mineral oils they replaced. If the seal-swell rate was lower, the seals shrank and oil leaked from crankshaft seals and rocker cover seals. If the rate was higher, the seals swelled a little extra and the engine was tight. Then if the owner changed back to mineral oil, or added a quart when no synthetic was to be had, things got really bad. The crank seals had become worn, in their turgid state, and then relaxed. The valve cover seals were compressed when swelled, and when the different oil was added, everything leaked like, well, an old English sports car.

Fortunately, the situation has improved; you should have no problem switching back and forth. Adding a quart of mineral oil to a crankcase full of synthetic will be fine. Read the fine print -- a lot of the "synthetics" on the market are blends containing a substantial proportion of mineral oil.

Hey now. Don't be throwing my name out there. LOL!

Mobil Delvac 1300 Super "The Million Mile Oil". I use it in all my vehicles. About $13 a gallon.

Here's a great link about oil. There are several others as well. The internet is your friend.
