Once my VFR is broken in I will be using that or Motul or Amzoil. They are all good oils. Just make sure you double check what your bike is recommended for the correct weight

What is the OEM recommended oil change interval?
here we go again with the amsoil man

I hired 100 Eskimos to squeeze the oil from whale blubber with their bare hands. It isn't synthetic, and I don't recommend it for your bike, but the labor was cheap. Ya can't get good whale blubber squeezers these days unless they are real Eskimos. I'm just saying - stay away from whale blubber oil. If you are thinking aobut trying it I would think twice. I have Mobile-1 in my GSXR. 32Kmiles and runs/shifts like new.

Plus it could lead to blown seals. Or maybe even walruses. Either way, the molestation of Alaskan wildlife is nothing to make light of.

I've used the Mobil several times in my bikes and it's great oil.
