Castrol R4t full synthetic

But ya try it out (synthetic) just make sure it is at least JASO-MA rated.

Anybody run Mobil 1 car oil? I've been running it for years in my Busas and really like how it lets me modulate clutch release better than the less slippery motorcycle specific oils. I don't know how stout the 10 clutch is though but am interested because I just recently picked up a 2008 and will end up at the track with it at least a few times this summer.
