Which oil and grade should I use????? - October 16, 2008, 04:37 PM

Looking to change my oil within the next two days, I'm trying to see which oil i should you as well as which grade 20w40 and all? The store wants $12 for the filter and $15 a quart for full synthetic that can get rather expensive, is that the way to go or what? Also I'm not sure what the previous owner/owners ran so should i go full anyway? One shop was saying i can get clutch slipage and possibly have to change something if i choose the wrong oil. What should I do???

Who when asked for bread hands a hungry man a stone?

Googs over on dot com just posted that he's been using Shell Rotella T 5W-40 Synthetic now for over 16K miles. Others say it's good too. I'm switching over myself. You can get it at Walmart. Also, you don't have to spend a bunch of money on filters either. Here's a chart:

How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

I'm just curious why you would think Rotella/ diesel oil is a bad thing...

^ if it was made to run in a high reving gasoline motor then why whould they specify the oil for diesel? wouldnt they market it for both?? last i checked sport bikes dont run on diesel...so i would kind of think twice about puting a product made for a diesel in a gas motor, if you have that train of thought then hell why dont we just put straight diesel in a gas running motor (it will probably run but i bet it will run like shit) there is a reason there are different oils for different applications

Unless someone wants to break out the "its all the same arguement", in which case buy whatever you want because its a marketing ploy and there are absolutely no advantages to one over the other.
