could I buy that stuff at walmart? :lol:Ace said:Pippi is right, Amsoil. Thats what I have used since my first oil change. I use Full Synthetic, but not sure if you are supposed to on a brand new bike or what. Might want to ask Captain Post WHore (Gas Man).
But go with Amsoil and then a K&N oil filter
bumblebee said:Get out your owners manual and read the section on oil. It will tell you exactly what to buy and what to look for on the label. I am able to put Pennz 10W40 in the Bee, and I buy Fram filters for under $5.00 each. But I also change my oil every 4-6 weeks or 1500 miles. That means we are due again Snakemann!!
bumblebee said:Why do you take a bath more than once a week? To keep clean?? An oil change is cheap, engine damage ain't...For normal driving, I would go with the 2 to 3K between changes. But if you are driving 20 to 30 miles at 100+ when you are out, you are breaking the oil down much faster and I will error on the side of clean oil. Also, when you live in areas of high humidity, you are fighting moisture. An oil/filter change is the best maintenance for longevity for any internal combustion engine, so why take chances.
