I was talking to my mechanic Gord Mcmartin and asked him what oil he generally uses for bike oil and he said Motul 5100. So I decided to do a bit of homework on the subject just for fun and learning. I found a pretty interesting web page some of you might be interested in checking out. So what do you all use.

Oh god another oil thread!!

jk..

I use whatever is not stupid expensive and change often. Right now that would be Kawi's full syn for $34 for 4 litres. Filters everytime. I know you don't have to but it comes down to peace (not piece - Doug) of mind.

Wasn't there just a poll on oil? Anyhoo, GN4 as specified in my manual. Replaced with filter every 3000km.
