    Just ordered a case (4, 4 litre jugs) of my fave oil for $7.60 litre from my local PetroCan bulk dealer.
    Duron E Synthetic 10/40. Classified as "suitable" for JasoMa.
    Still a good bang for the buck, high spec 10/40
    I've been using Duron oils for about 10 years in a variety of bikes. I think every bike I've owned called for 10/40.

    That price is loads cheaper than the royal purple I am burning.

    You think there is enough advantage to burning less expensive oil?

    Folks following receive less cancer causing agents perhaps?

    With new oil threads being locked out so quickly, I figured there must be ones on here that are not locked. With the information people are looking for?

    I just bought a 97 Kawasaki ZX9R and did my first oil change as well as changed the sparkplugs. I am an automotive mechanic and I get to use my shop discount to get oil. I used Lucas 20W50 Full Synthetic oil and Iridium Spark plugs. I got the oil for $10/Ltr. as opposed to $18/ltr at Canadian Tire. For $40 I'm gonna stick to Lucas Synthetic. Haven't noticed any difference in performance but it's not for me to notice, the oils for the engine.

    Buying oil in the USA

    So I just bought 4.4l of Mobil 1 0W20 Full synthetic. The oil seems to be more pricey than the rest $48. Then I checked the US Wallmart and its $24.97 for 5 quarts. Any thoughts. Am I missing something because I'm thinking I need to return this and make an early trip to Bellingham.

    Assuming you have a wet clutch, make sure the oil is rated for such and does NOT have the friction modifiers.

    I just replaced a clutch recently and think that's exactly what caused it to burn out......car oil.

    All quality motorcycle specific oils should also carry the JASO Motorcycle Specifications, which are either the JASO-MA specification (no friction modifiers) or the JASO-MB specification (with friction modifiers). The JASO-MA rating specifies that no friction modifiers are used. Note that the JASO-MB motorcycle does have friction modifiers, but is designed for motorcycles that specify the JASO-MB specification. If the oil does not carry one of these specifications, even if the other specifications listed above are present, We recommend finding an oil that has the proper JASO specification clearly labeled on the bottle.

    Yeah, I hope this is for your car. 0W20 definitely has friction modifier additives, not good at all for wet clutches in bikes. And, IMO, 10W40 is the absolute minimum viscosity I'd ever put in a motorcycle engine.

    I'm going to put this thread in the "BIG OIL THREAD", where it belongs, but if you wanted an inexpensive oil, synthetic,
    which is available in the US Walmarts, but also on competitively when on sale at Canadian Tire, and extremely proven
    in motorcycles, the Shell Rotella T6, 5/40 is around the same price:
