? about Castrol Oil

Cycle Gear has a sale on Castrol GPS for $2.99 and Castrol ACT-Evo for $2.29. Either of those any good? I need to change the oil in my bike for the first time and not sure what kind of oil was in it before or what kind to put in.

Also might need a new chain, dunno yet. I'll be getting a rear stand and I'll see if I can just pull the back tire back some.

both are ok. i say get semi-synthetic and see if they can hook you up for the 20% on the Castrol R4 oil.

if not get the Act-evo. you can get the oil filter at a autoparts store like Pepboys. they usually run aroun $1.99 there for the Fram. just cross refrence the part numbers and your set!

I was thinking I'd just get the K&N oil filter while I was there but I'm pretty sure it's more than $1.99. There's an autozone and an O'reilley's right down the street from me.

Also I have a 25% off coupon for next Sat. for oils and chemicals. I guess I'll just wait till then and get the R4 oil. Just gotta figure out what weight I'll use now.

I use a K&N cause the bolt mounted to the filter makes it so much easier to work with on the R6

if you are going to change the oil filter frequently then get them at the parts store. if anybody tells you Fram filters are they are trying to sell you something. there was a case YEARS ago when they broke or something on motorcycles but that wasnt common.

the parts store isnt going to know what filter your bike has so get the #'s off the filter and have them cross refrence. the K&N filters are nice since they have the bolt head for you to unscrew them, but its not worth the extra $$$ for that feature.

yup. they got recalled in 1995. ive used FRAM for years now and have told other people nation wide (at www.kawiforums.com) and locally about the loop hole when buying them at the auto parts store. nothing but praise is all ive heard
