Motorcycle Oil & Filter from Advanced AutoParts?

Good morning everybody,
I have noticed that advanced autoparts is selling oil filters (fram I think) and possible oil for motorcycles, atv etc...
Has anyone used these/their products? Do you recommend these/their products?

Thanks in advance....

I always stock up on my auto needs from Advance b/c they always run awesome specials. Use these codes when you checkout:

20% off with code P20
40% off with code LC123
$5 off $15 w/coupon code BIG5
$10 off $30 w/coupon code ES123
$15 off $40 w/coupon code BIG15
$16 off $40 w/coupon code LC123
$20 off $50 w/coupon code ES123 / A123 / EMW25
$24 off $60 w/coupon code LC123
$25 off $60 w/coupon code BIG25
$20 off $75 w/coupon code BIG20
$30 off $75 w/coupon code BIG30 / EMW37
$32 off $80 w/coupon code LC123
$35 off $85 w/coupon code BIG35
$40 off $100 w/coupon code BIG40 / LC123
$50 off $150 w/coupon code VISA
$50 off $200 w/coupon code BIG50

The codes don't work on oil but last time I stocked up on oil they had Mobile 1 full synthetic for $2.99(regular $8.49 for the long lasting) and Mobile 1 was running a $5 rebate for every 5 quarts you bought. I also use my couponcactus account for 5% cashback

"Oil for motorcycles" is mostly a marketing ploy to get money out of people with expensive toys and more money than brains. Diesel engine oil has to meet much more stringent testing standards than any other car/motorcycle oil and is put through a of a lot more abuse in normal use than any other oil you can buy. I prefer Shell Rotella T6 but Delo or Delvac will work pretty much the same. These 3 oils actually meet and surpass every single quality and testing standards for motorcycle use. They are designed to work perfectly with wet clutches and have much higher shear strength, film strength and has higher quantity detergents than just about any other motor oil out there.

ZXALAN and DvlRacer, thanks for the info. I don't even use fram for the cages, so I wasn't feeling right to use it on the Busa. But the codes will be great to use and the Mobile 1 as came-up in both threads.... hmmm. Hopefully they gotts the good stuff.

Thanks again

Too lazy to list references.... but google it .. easy stuff. If you are lazy to do the in-depth research, just put your preferred can of oil next to a can of Rotella T6 and compare the specs and certifications listed on the back label. I was just trying to share what know... i've got nothing to gain by getting others to switch.

Here.... i'll start the research off for ya... http://www.shell.com/home/Framework?...t6_detail.html

Shell Rotella T6 no motorcycle warranty listed, AMSOIL MCV parts and labor warranty.
Shell Rotella T6 not recommended for extended oil changes, AMSOIL MCV is.
Shell Rotella T6 has 2% viscosity loss, other truck oils listed up to 19%, AMSOIL has 0%.
Shell Rotella T6 does not list gasoline on link provided, AMSOIL MCV does.
Shell Rotella T6 is not formulated for or tested in motorcycles. AMSOIL MCV is.
Shell Rotella T6 is petroleum based. AMSOIL MCV is a pure chemical synthetic.
Shell Rotella T6 is not used by professional motorcycle racers. AMSOIL is.
Shell Rotella T6 is formulated for soot control and diesel emissions in diesel engines. AMSOIL MCV does not have those and other "fillers" needed for diesel engines.
Good research... Game Over???

I read a few years ago that there are only a hand full of filter manufacturers. Most are the same with different labels. I like the K&N. That welded on nut is a life saver with full exhaust.
