Did an oil change with the Motul that the Wife bought me and the shifting was no near as notchy be the age of the bike as well as 40km on it. Anyone else have this as well? It does seem to go though a bit more oil too compared to the yamalube. These bike to have a problem with oil consumption from what I am hearing.

I also use the 5100.It seems to break down a little quicker but it did improve the shifting on my R1 track bike.

I used the 5100 last change and shifts were much smoother. The guy at the other Honda shop is trying to get me to use Amsoil instead...anyone else ever used Amsoil?

I use Castrol Syntec 10W40 and shifting is like a hot knife through butter. The bike has been running cooler(?) and overall engine noise has been reduced since changing from Motul to the Castrol.
