I've been using the Honda HP oil for about 8 months now and have grown tired of spending 8.25 per quart. I've read where alot of you guys are using Mobile 1 15w50 and are satisified with the product. I currently ride the bike 100 miles a week (to school) and try to get out 3 to 4 times a month on the trails. I change the oil every month and clean the filter every other change. How does the Mobile 1 hold up? Is it the same product that you purchase at Checker or Autozone? Thanks for the help. Mike

For a inexpensive Semi-synthetic, I use Castrol Syntec-blend in the 10w-50 weight. At around $2.50 a quart, it's been very good to me.

I don't know that I would spend the money on Amzoil, but I've heard some folks say they like it.
