Im not a troll, just allergic to stupid.
Funny how some people think that they are so special that their particular question is novel, original, and previously un-asked and un-answered.

What are you going to start a thread asking next? What tires are best? Which liter bike is the most badass? Can you really do 610 in under 12 minutes? Does anyone on the forum know a powdercoater? How should you prepare for a trackday? What brand helmet should you buy? Which gear company is best?

Honestly untill you start paying high dollar for high quality oils most motorcycle oils are the same. Yamalube, Honda Gn4,Mobil1, kawasaki, Suzuki etc etc. I think as long as you change your oil regularly at 3-4k miles its not going to make a huge difference if you run synthetic or regular oil too. Stay away from FRAM oil filters as they use cardboard in them. You really dont need to run stuff like royal purple or AMSOIL unless youre out racing your bike 24/7. Just make sure the oil you use is JASO-MA.

BTW youre going to get hundreds of views on motorcycle oil, break-in procedures, etc. Just do what you feel is right and what works for you.

But its more fun to respond with smartass comments when a topic has been covered hundreds of times. Who the are you to be calling someone a troll with such a stupid thread?

Leave the newbie alone. He will learn over time. I think trolling comments can be funny at times, but for somebody whos only been riding a few months and been here a few months if can really turn them off to coming back here for advice. And despite what ive seen by a few members.. There really is some smart people here.

get off my nuts fucktard. I was genuine in my first reply, I don't give two what you or the op thinks about my reply. He asked what oil we run, I answered. Don't like my advice? Don't follow it. This is one of the most opinionated questions on any forum that revolves around powersports, answers will always differ immensely. Do you think the search button is up there for only our experienced members? Maybe I am more judicious in my approach, but I will exhaust the resources of the search function on any forum prior to posting redundant bullshit. GFY!

And for the record, I kept it civil until your boyfriend started running his inexperienced mouth.

Amsoil is to expensive.

Used to get Repsol but it is double the price now

Cycle gear usually has a decent price on Mobil 1 full synthetic, thats what I run. Sometimes a sale, buy 4 get one free...

Anything with the API rating as noted in your owners manual should be fine.

Other than that, I use peanut. higher smoke point.
