to be honest I thought this would turn into a swhy didnt you search thread.. suprisingly very cordial in here.. In honesty I usually use mobil 1 Vtwin.. Thought throwing out the chevron would get me a little flameage going for the heck of it.

I have used the Rotella syn 10/40, thought it a little too thin, my clutch didnt like the V-Twin Mobil 1 20/50. So far for me, the dino 4-stroke M/C Castrol 20/50 has worked the best, and used less oil between oil changes. Ive never used the Motorex 15/50. I started using Valvoline 4-stroke dino oil in an old Ironhead Sportster Im building, but too soon to tell... Just my 2 cents. BTW, I like oil threads, knowing something an be gleaned from them.

I'm keeping an eye on this thread, I do oil changes on my 525 every 3 ride and the 990 uses three times as much. At 18-19 a liter I wanna find a cheaper alternative. I'm leaning towards Mobil 1.

Me,

10W 50 and 10W 60.

All oil is expensive here in Oz, except the real cheap shit.

The one thing I have always feared from non-motorcycle oils in bikes was the friction modifiers and their effect on the wet clutch.

I plan to use the Motorex until all of my warranty is gone, then switch to Mobil 1 10-40 racing formula.

PS: oil threads are good. After all, this IS a forum and not just a data base. Keeps all of the players playing!

Laters.......

Been using amsoil for years in all my rides,but recently picked up a Terra and the recommended oil for it is Castrol 4t racing oil.
It looks similar to the motor ex in the fact the oil is almost colorless,which I like because you can look at it and actually tell how dirty it is....if that even means anything......and I can get in 10w50


At the asking price it ought to be good.Just like to find a cheaper supplier.The local dealer gets the same price as the internet guys..

castrol
