what oil is everyone using?
Ready to do another oil change and at $19 a litre for Motorex do I have other options?

My favorite oil for my 950 is the 10-30 chevron blue bottle. Something like $1.30 per quart.

Shell Rotella T6 synthetic 5w40, gallon jug @ WalMart, $22.

I use Amsoil 20w 50 on my bike. Its like $8.25 a quart.

Shell Rotella T if you run a Rekluse this is what they suggest. I just change my oil more often and still save a few bucks.

I run Chevron Dello 400 15w50 in my 950. Its designed for diesels and actually keeps the motor really clean. As far as price I dont know, I get it for free at my work :evil
