WHich works best? Depends what you want to do with them...Just look at them-fully synthetic (but what fun is just looking). For functionality, gotta go with semi, or all natural...

I wonder this question could pertain to engine oil as well??? :)

Ignore him. Buy Mobil 1, but only get the 15-50. Other weights have the EC (Energy Conserving, not Absorbing) designation which will allegedly lead to clutch slippage.

I probably have 300 hours of use on two YZFs w/ Mobil 1 and no clutch or other problems.

What I think Dont matter, its what you want to use.

Synth's are good oils dont get me wrong, I think that for the price you pay for Synth's and the amount of time it stays in the bike is not worth the money.

I use Castrol Act>Evo 20-50 it is a mineral based oil for thumpers or race replica bikes. They have a 10-40 Synth Blend it is a few bucks more. I am having good luck with the 20-50.

If you shop you can pick it up at chapperal for 11.95 a liter not a bad deal, ya get about 4 good oil changes..You can get rocky mountain @ http://www.rockymountainmc.com to ship it ...

Here is the Castrol Site

Im just a castrol fan, been using Castrol for years in my Road Racers, Dirt Trackers and Mountain Bikes, Never Failed me. Even in all my cars

Mexican girls, typically, do not like gabachos like me, so I try to avoid falling in love with them.

And, I am as conservative as they come. Well, almost. I’m a redneck Hick, which should count for something. I own many firearms and used to belong to the NRA. I have a business degree. I think Hillary is a tool.

Therefore I must be a conservative.

Hope this helps.

I use Amsoil motorcycle specific fully synthetic 10w40. They also make a 20w50. They have just come out with a 0w50 (I think that's the weight) that I saw in an advertisement w/ Mike Larocco.

Amsoil makes very high quality oils. I am glad to see them getting involved in the MX game. They have been in snowmobiles for years. (we have a lot of those in south east TX)

You won't go wrong using Amsoil, but all high quality synthetics will be good, unless they aren't wet clutch friendly oils.

I tried Valvoline 4 stroke oil, and my shifting got a little notchier. I think I will switch back to Castrol Actevo.

I use Silkolene semi-synthetic because my dealer stocks it not because I know anything.

I do notice better shifting when I go to semi-synthetic.

Full synthetic is lotsa money.

Besides the only peace I get in my house is when I'm in the garage. I couldn't bring myself to dump 20 bucks worth of oil.

If you want some good tech. info. on what oil to run, and why mobil 1 15-50 is probably the best synth. oil to run check out dirtrider.net and do a search on mobil 1.
