KY has that new his and hers. His for our 10's and hers for CBR's????
:lol: Couldn't be more right on the CBR fact.

I've ran the Repsol semi-syn and it wasn't bad at all. Last change put in some Royal Purple and it's like butter, but it seems like it makes the shifts and motor louder, really it does so I'm going to try some Silkolene next change, should be here pretty soon. Otherwise I'm giving in and going to AmSoil.

If you use the search feature you'll find plenty on oil though. AmSoil and Repsol seem to be up there a lot, as well as the Shell. Personally I wouldn't mind trying the Mobil 1 stuff...I'm just going to keep trying until I find one that I like. I'd say between the four I just mentioned in this paragraph though that you cannot go wrong with any of them.

Just pour in some Aunt Jamima's, great viscosity and will add 30 hp. Plus you'll never have to change it and it will always smell great.

We all just wanted to see the smart answers.

Use what oil you like. They are mostly all good.

That stuff does look good, but DANG...ka-ching$$$
Yeah.....it's the latest technology in racing synthetic M/C specific oils. As for the price.....yeah, it's expensive but like the old saying goes....." you get what you pay for." I'm sure there is lots of cheaper oil out there.
