flitecontrol After reading this thread, I bought some Rotella for the first change in my bike. I like synthetic oil and the Rotella is not energy conserving. Castrol Syntec is.

Old Dog I got steered on to Shell Rotella T 5w-40 Synthetic and have stuck with it for good, bad, or ugly...

I used Castrol Syntec in my Honda Rebel and messed up the clutch. Don't use energy conserving oil (look in the little circle logo to see if it is) in any bike with a wet clutch.

shark88 Use what works best for your bike, I didn't have luck with the 15-40 Rotella that a lot use. I went the the Castrol Synthetic 10w40 last time and love it.

Mastertech I run 20w- 50w straight motor oil, any brand you like!
Generic oils is all i use, supertech, parts master, napa etc.
Some folks get real heavy into the oil.
It is always an opinion thing really.

What kind of oil do you use?

Brand? Weight? Whats best for these bikes? Do you run a heavier weight in the summer?

Thanks
