I'm the same way but I just go to the gas station. I pay for oil changes what some pay for one bottle of oil.FZ1 Matt said:I just put the cheapest oil I can find from walmart in both my FZ1 and my SV650S. Last weekend I put in regular old 10w 40 Penzoil. I just make sure the oil doesn't say anything about friction modifers, but even if I miss that on the label I don't worry. I put over 5000 miles on the SV since I last changed the oil too. I think I put 8000 miles on the FZ1 since last change too.
I wouldn't worry too much. My bikes haven't blown up yet. I'm pretty hard on them too. You should be ok with whatever oil you put in.
Functionally, that's what Bike oil is. And if they guy's asking "what oil should I get", the likely hood of him going in and getting the right oil diminishes. And, having had to replace the fricton plates on the clutch because some crafty guy bought cheap penzoil full-synth for his bike and it fugged it up, kinda eats away any profit he might have saved from cheaping on the oil2002 Busa SE said:"BIKE OIL" you guys read to many magizines!! Walmart...Mobil 10W40, with the right API (SF- SG) $1.10 a QT, Ive been using it for 4000 miles this year so far and 25 ( hard ) passes down the strip , not 1 problem.
Nice. Ouch for the oil though. Busa's have an aux oil cooler on them? You'd think the Turbo'd guys would want a b***** sump with an oil cooler.2002 Busa SE said:you could feel the heat coming off the clutch cover, it never slipped once and still came out clean.
