I've always heard from the mechanics I race with,wait till you get to 3,000 miles then put in the synthetic oil.
All the internals are properly seated and broke in at this range.
How you break in the bike is another monster,
how you oil it is life or death of your bike!
I worked as a researcher for a company that makes engine gaskets. Best to wait until at least 2k. Then for sure switch to synthetic. The difference in corrosion of rubber gaskets and breakdown between synthetic oil and conventional oil is amazing! especially at higher temps.
You can tell it's spring again by all the oil threads. And all the BS nonsense about how you have to break an engine in with dino oil.

Can't count how many times I've been warned t onever put synthetic oil in my bikes because it'll ruin them. :headshake

Reason: my 2007 zx10r front brake system recently started to get extremely soft when bike sits for a few...
I haven't been on here much lately, but i need some help. This has probably already been covered, but my search didn't yield what I'm asking.
I bought a front triple tree stand for obvious reasons, but it pushes up on my fairings under my light? It's a venom. I'm 99% sure I'm doing it right...
So my gen 2 ZX10R is only running on cylinders 2 & 4. I’ve tried switch 1 & 3 coils to 2 & 4 with no change. Did the same thing with spark plugs, same result. Getting power to all coils & injectors. Someone else on the forum had this same issue and remedied it with a new ECM(second hand). So a...
