I haven't changed the oil in my bike yet so I have no idea what to put in it. No owners manual either. It's a 93 F2 w/ exhaust and I think a jet kit also but I have no idea if it really does or not.

it dont matter what mods it has. what type of riding you do (track, country roads, cruise, commute) should determine the weight you should use. brand is just personal choice based on expereinces.

try the cheaper stuff the try the more expensive stuff and make a choice. cheaper doesnt mean the autozone oil though :laughing6

We've got all that stuff at Cycle Gear for way cheaper than at the dealerships, come in and talk to me. And Repsol rocks! The Motul is good stuff too.
