Before locking in, go to the store and feel the s2. Some think it's a shade to big. But the hardware is awesome. I'm still torn over the s3 or the s2 for my next phone.

for wear and protection, rotella compares nicely. I have only had one bike that "liked" amsoil better - that 2006 tiger had some really picky clutch plates - really really tight tolerance - so to make the shifts better, amsoil was a bit nicer than rotella T6... so I used amsoil in it.

everything else just loved rotella or even the synthetic rotella T6.

so the only consideration was the ease of shifting with the super picky 2006. Been using normal rotella on the current bikes.

it's a decent oil. Don't need to turn this thread into one of those annoying "less filling tastes great" oil threads ... it's wet clutch certified, and if your bike shifts ok with it, then use it. It goes on sale at certain points during the year too... which is when I get it.

amsoil is a bit expensive. I have some left over from that 2006 tiger.... it was super picky!

Both look real nice but the S2 is waaay cheaper... For me the S2 would prolly be more than adequate...

Tag 777 - It's Gotta Be Good Luck!

Stone's throw from TAG #766. The pond has got to be better for you.



Great place to go on a Sunday ride...

Check your time stamp!

There was no one there when I got there, but one vehicle showed up when I was leaving and they were carrying in enough stuff to make it look like a party.

Yes, the lot was pretty full. I got some "who the heck is this guy..." looks. Catering Van was parked right in front of where your bike had been.

The time stamp was for some extra flair...glad you enjoyed it.

I don't mind the oil threads. I just bail out as soon as they turn nasty.

Pep Boys had Rotella on sale not too long ago.
Checking the usual suspects now.

AutoZone - Rotella T 15W40 $17.99/gallon $69.99/5 gallons

Advance Rotella T 15W40 $17.99/gallon
Rotella T6 (synth) 5W40 - $27.99/gallon

PepBoys site - down
WalMart - not responding
Oreilly - no Rotella

Carquest Rotella T 15W40 $17.99/gallon
Rotella T6 synth $27.99/gallon

NAPA Rotella T $16.99/gallon $39.99/2.5 gallon $79.99/5 gallon
Rotella T6 $27.99/gallon

I could've sworn I got T6 for <$20/gallon at PepBoys last time I bought it on sale.

I'm pretty sure I got my T6 for 24.99 a gallon. Switching the Beemer over to it also. Almost too bad that I've got 4 quarts of BMW motorcycle oil sitting and ready for the next oil change on the F650. That stuff is expensive and I don't even think it's a very good oil.

I sure wouldn't let it sit forever, just due to throwing money away. Use it for a short duration oil change or something. Or craigslist it.

lonewolf97 grab 777

Grab # 777 the taylors mill pond beside Tippits store. This is a good place to ride out to. Have a cold drink on the picnic tables outside and look at the water. very relaxing.
