i and all my peeps back home use Dumonde Tech full synthetic. its twice as good as mobil 1 and like 20 x better than any castrol or any other commonly used oil. Ive tried finding oils that are better and can not find one that compares. Everytime i change my oil, its as if im on a brand new bike again!

IMO everyone should try it and use it


Prove to me its not the best!

I didn't use Rotella T6 Blue jug since I can only find it in 5w-40, which is too thin of a weight if you ask me.

JASO oil

JASO full synthetic, brand seems to matter little as far as I can tell

JASO OIL RATING:
Unlike the API, which is an petroleum-specific institution, JASO is a consortium of major vehicle manufacturers in Japan. JASO stands for the Japanese Automotive Standards Organization (although translated from Japanese it might be more accurate to say Japanese Vehicle Manufacturer's Organization). JASO rates oils for compatibility with their products (cars and motorcycles), and all the major Japanese motorcycle manufacturers (Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, Yamaha) specified a JASO standard for compatibility with their four-stroke motorcycles' oil needs starting in 1998, called the JASO-MA standard. Most non-Japanese motorcycle manufacturers (Aprilia, BMW, Ducati, Triumph, etc.) now also specify a JASO standard for use in their motorcycle engines.
JASO only has two standards for four-stroke engines at this time: JASO MA (higher friction oils) and JASO MB (low friction oils). The JASO specifications include HTHS Viscosity requirements (covered further down on this page), sulfated ash content and a number of other important characteristics that are not specified or are not as rigidly specified by the API specifications.

Updated: JASO split their JASO-MA standard into JASO-MA1 and JASO-MA2. MA1 is the follow on for bikes that call for JASO-MA oils.

i prefer Motul 3000. It's a semi synthetic and motorcycle specific. Not to mention one of the top leading brands in the industry.

We sell them for $27/gallon at our shop along with other brands like Amsoil, Maxima, Repsol, and Silkolene.

Awesome. I haven't known a place that had Amsoil so may give it a try since so many people rave about it, although an oil analysis I read on a car site said it thinned out earlier than other. Might hit you up for some and some other goodies for my FZ.
