It can't possibly be the "best" since Amsoil is the "best"....or was that Mobil-1? Valvoline makes a good product too. But then theres my buddy who put 416,000 miles on his early 80's Harley with nothing but plain old Walmart Castrol dino oil. And thats only a fraction of the miles he has put on motorcycles and scooters...with Castrol being his favorite. :roll:
I like synthetic, but don't ask me to prove its the best. Just makes me feel good to think maybe its better than regular stuff, slicker, less friction, less heat buildup, :wink: :wink: .......despite those 416,000 miles mentioned above.
I dont know why its the best, he said it was, but again he thinks he knows more than most, you know the type :wink: . I never heard tell of it before, so was on the web site reading about it and thought I would ask the gurus here, if thats how you spell guru :? Wayne.
Having suffered through many "oil threads" on various motorcycle forums, I've seen at least 100 other guys proclaim they know which oil is the best. All different oils of course. There is a guy over on the V-Strom forum currently praising Rotella Diesel oil for use in his motorcycle. I suspect they are all correct. Any modern motor oil that meets the base specifications in the owner's manual is probably going to work quite well, whether regular oil, synthetic oil, or a blend. The only thing that most folks agree on is not to start using synthetic oil until after the machine has fully broken in.
Me - I use Silkolene synthetic oils in both of my bikes. I don't know if it's the best. I do know that nobody else really knows either. So I use what makes me happy - and that's about as good as it gets. :wink:
