Mobile 1 offers filters for motorcycles? I had asked Advanced Auto Parts they said no (could have just meant his store)

They do have some that cross reference to bikes but I don't think any for the 'busa. Wix makes a good filter in my opinion (Wal-Mart) and they have one for your bike, so does hiflo, suzuki, and K&N.

I guess if you do increase the oil change intervals to 12,000 miles, it wouldn't be so bad.

Honestly folks, if you think AMSOIL is better for you, use it. For what its worth, all 6 of my cars (2 with over 200K and 4 with between 100-150K) and the 5 bikes I've owned have seen nothing by Rotella. All on their original engines, no oil consumption and they all have compression numbers a lotta folks would wish they had.

Whatever floats your boat.......
