actually...my claims are supported by a good friend of mine who is an oil sales rep for exxon/mobil ....i tend to listen to what he has to say!! because HE HAS seen lab results and sat through classes upon classes on top of going to diesel school and whatever else the nut did...he knows ALOT.
he is either a really good bull****ter or knows what he is talking about!..thus why his company pays him about 160k a year! and i have learned through him. so im not just spewing words. its not like im bashing your bike...just the oil and filter you choose...but thats your choice.
sometimes when he is talking about oil....his vocabulary sounds almost as if he were a philosopher! lol....i never knew there was THAT much to know about oils and additives in them so on and so forth and ALL of the characteristics of each.
im not bashing you....i just wouldnt skimp on something already so cheap.
Fram filters by the way are proven to be less than average from time to time...do an internet search....a TON of people I know have had problems with them (threads,leakage,filtering properties,"rust" believe it or not)
Hell....im not bragging that I spend 60-70 bucks to do even my OWN oil change for my vehicles...but when they are worth anywhere from my 10k bike to my 70k M3.....Im not looking to save 20 bucks by buying cheaper products.
