Exclamation Oils?

What type of oil do you run in your bike and why do you like it?

Syn 3 - wasn't my choice since my oil was changed during my 15K checkup. Next go around it's going to be Amsoil, I think. It's agreeable with my wet-clutch.

diesel oil

Chevron Delo 400 - its not overpriced, meets factory specs, and it lubricates my engine. Other options include Mobil Delvac 1300, and Shell Rotella (reg or synthetic).

The purpose of oil is not just for lubrication. It's job is to hold contaminants from the combustion process. Water could lube an engine, but will not hold up to heat mainly. That is why regular and frequent oil changes are beneficial. After years of experience in engines (turbines spinning at 50,000 rpms) I can tell you that a synthetic is what the FAA likes and requires in most turbines.

castrol actevo...cause it was 2.29 a quart, and when you have an oil leak, you dont want to put expesive oil right through your bike and onto the highway...haha.

Shell Rotella 15W-40 conventional. Change every 1000-2000 miles or after a track day. Cheap and fabulous, additives dont cause clutch slippage, holds up to shear extremely well. 6 bucks a gallon due to the economies of scale (diesel truck companies use barrels of this stuff). Formulated for high shear, extended service engines in diesel trucks..which is a very competitive market and has benefited from lots of corporate R&D and laboratory work. The additive packages for Chevron Delo and Rotella are superior to any conventional and approach or meet the standards of synthetics. Since I change so often, a synthetic is not really an advantage. A race engine, sure I would use a synthetic...but a street bike...I dont see the advantage considering the price.

Lots of opinions to be found on this subject, and lots of anecdotal evidence will be given. My bike runs well...I've had this one for about 15k miles.
