I wouldn't recommend it for your GSXR but if you buy a HD or old Nighthawk it should work quite well.

straight 70 weight......not sure about that. Kinda thick...I wonder if those race bikes have a different oil pump....

I could definately see the plus side once the bike gets hot and the oil thins a bit.... plus, you got the super filter, so bypass shouldn't be as bad due to the higher flow rate on the Scotts filter....

Higher flow oil pumps are illegal in most racing clubs.

Really! I didn't know that. How would they know? hehe

Anyway, that's not what I'm gettin at. I just want to make sure that your current oil pump is going to scream it's nuts off trying to pump the extra weight/thicker oil. I'm sure it will but it was just something I wanted to toss out.

But I can definately see some great advatages to running the thicker oil. Once it gets hot, it would be heavier than the other. Aren't you runnin 20-50 in it now?!?!? If not that would definately be another avenue I would look at. The 10-40's just wouldn't seem to be enough for the track...
