He wasn't asking what the newest on the market is, he was asking about oils that people have experience with and he was also asking the differences between dino and synthetic oil.

Two topics that literally cannot be beat to death any more humanly possible. "Which Oil?" might be the worst repeated discussion since the inception of the motorcycle itself with an infinite number of responses that ultimately leads to a conclusion that somehow is divisible by zero....

9 posts huh?
GTFO.

I gave you your one noob freebie post with the direct links to different oil threads or synthetic discussion. After that, search will expected.

The only thing you are allowed to repost is motorcycle videos, so we can play the

R

game.

The BEST oil is the one with a label that you find pretty and change frequently!
Oil opinions are like , everyone has one and they all stink!

On my 6800 mile trip in june I had to take my bike to a dealership in Berkley, CA for an oil change. I usually run Mobil Delvac 1300 super. They put Yamalube in it and I felt a noticable difference in the bike. Shifted better, accelerated smoother, it felt like they did a tune up on it or something. I think I'm switching brands now. I guess they know what they are doing formulating an engine oil just for their bikes.

The world of oil innovation is not nearly as hot an industry as you'd have us believe. With the exception of these new "high mileage" oils.........................that have been on the market for at least 5 years now................companies only make new products when API specifications change. Like in diesel oil where the government required a low ash oil.

Could that just have been the difference between dirty oil and clean oil?

I did consider that also. I don't think so. I'm getting close to my next oil change and it still seems the same. I've done about 8 oil changes on my bike now and have a good idea of how it felt then and now.

I agree that you can tell a difference in shifting when the oil is new.
Since the trans and cylinders share the same oil, the brand new stuff feels better shifting.
As far as performance goes...I think the placebo effect comes into play. Like your car feels better to drive after a car wash and wax.

My does feel better after a wax. I think it raises the top speed by .00034% due to reduced drag or something.

I heard if it is dirty, it has less drag.

Like the dimples on a golf ball.

Actually mythbusters busted this one, but found that a dimpled car is more efficient. Given a simple shape such as a ford Taurus.
