too funny! Yeah, my first thought was whatever you use, just don't change it. But that could be wrong because possible the bike only REALLY likes amsoil syn. I added a couple tablespoons of amsoil couple days ago, and checked the odometer today after the loop, and it just turned over 35,000 miles. Running smooth as butter. I changed the oil ONCE at 18,000 miles, only because I had to change out a light bulb and so, somehow, got the odd urge to also change the oil Guess because nothing else to do.
edit: I better add that no dusty or dirty conditions and no smog here, although oil people think we do have smog, but I was raised in LA, and I truly know what real smog is like!
