It's Billish -- you want me to translate it for you?


Cavie, you buy cheap oil from Walmart so you probably eat at cheap burger joints like Greasy Mac's.  

(Bill only eats at exclusive French burger joints with French names like Hardee's.)  

Cheesy

Will you two please take a minute from your repartee' to go ahead and nominate your various oils please?

I doubt it will make to the list, but Ive been using Chevron 10/40 plain jane oil in pretty much all 7 street bikes and 10 or so dirt bikes. Never had an oil related or wear issue yet.

But i do change it often.  Every since I worked in the engines lab at Chevron research I started using it regularly.

Its about 2-3 bucks a quart.

Ive dabbled in the synthetics, semi-synthetics and higher priced stuff but never saw any benefit.

Started out on Mobil 1 for about 2 oil changes.  
Went to Rotella T6 after that.   Works fine for me, gets my vote.  
While I don't ride really really hard, I probably have one of the highest mileage bikes around here.  (around 86,000 miles)
The only internal engine component that had to be replaced was the cam chain, from stretching out.

Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut between the seat and the handlebars. Make sure yours isn't too tight or too loose.

We got a  Rotella T-6 5w40 synthetic and a Rotella T dino proposed that do happen to meet all the requirements.

Chevron 10w40 does not have a JASO rating, so it fails to make the list.

Next set please.

Rotella T6 is my 1st recommendation as that is what I use.  But I would use Amsoil for my 2nd choice

I've been using Mobil1 15/40 in my wifes 2008 with no problems, but, my 87 (I've only had it for 4 months) slips in 4th when cold so I will try the T6 per old fellers recommendation. Wish it came in a 5 quart jug! Angry

Ironically, Suzuki brand 10W40 fails to make the cut due to lack of 1,200 ZDDP to support the flat tappets that the Savage uses.  
This is sad, but it is what it is.

Mobil 1 car oil is out due to not being JASO approved and for having 81 ppm of moly in it (energy star slippery stuff).

If you are proposing an as yet unknown Mobil 1 JASO motorcycle oil please supply a link to the VOA on the oil and verification that it carries JASO markings on the label.   Ditto if you are using a Mobil 1 of the diesel persuasion (presuming such a thing exists).  

Mobil 1 changes what it makes (and how it makes it) quicker than you change your underwear ....

I've used that mobil1 v-twin stuff, it is JASO rated but may be too expensive to make the "recommended" cut.

http://www.mobiloil.com/usa-english/motoroil/oils/mobil_1_v-twin_20w-50.aspx

Pretty much like Amsoil in that I like it, but probably won't buy more of it unless I can pick up someone's stash for cheap.

How did you find that?  In the Material Safety Data Sheet it only states that ZDDP is less than 2.5%.  Did I miss it somewhere?

I don't know what that per cent means I've only seen numbers like 800-1800 ZDDP That was Mobil car high performance racing oil not motorcycle oil,With the 1850 ZDDP.
