I have Repsol ?'s

So I know there is a difference between the "synthetic based" and "full synthetic" but has anyone use the synthetic base 10w40? I don't ride that hard and it doesn't get too hot here in socal so I am wondering if the cheaper synthetic mixture will be good for me or not.

I would spend the extra money and go with full sythentic. Shifting is so much smoother and you get that extra performance/safty out of full synthetic. but that is just me

you only live once, do what you want

I use Repsol 10w40 synthetic in my 04 and will eventually use it in the 08 - its good stuff.

Alright, I was just making sure that everyone else thought that full synthetic is the way to go.

I've also used Maxum Extra 10W-40 and loved it. Just have to go through the hastle of ordering online and waiting on shipping.

How much shipped to 92058 for a 1 gallon jug and a 1 liter bottle (for topping off) of full synthetic repsol?
