That totally explains why you're so down on heavy duty engine oils in motorcycle engines.
Not so much "down on" as it is this: I want to do the very best for my equipment - to get the best performance, to protect it for longevity, and for peace of mind while running down the road. I studied oils for several years before I decided to become an Amsoil dealer. Their products are ALWAYS at the top - the best in the world of their kind. Period. Whenever anybody ever touts the merits of their (lesser) product, Amsoil has a better product. Period. Amsoil products, when used as intended, are generally CHEAPER to use due to their longevity.

Amsoil is the best oil ever created, it is the only oil I use and you're wrecking your scooter if you use anything else.

Rotella is the best oil ever created, it is the only oil I use and you're wrecking your scooter if you use anything else.

Mobil 1 is the best oil ever created, it is the only oil I use and you're wrecking your scooter if you use anything else.

Valvoline is the best oil ever created, it is the only oil I use and you're wrecking your scooter if you use anything else.

Honda Spec is the best oil ever created, it is the only oil I use and you're wrecking your scooter if you use anything else.

(_________) is the best oil ever created, it is the only oil I use and you're wrecking your scooter if you use anything else.

And that's the truth. Laughing

There is only one way to tellif one oil is better than another.
1/. Pour a small amount (1/2 teaspoon at most) into a crucible of aluminium foil.
(not going too fast an I?)
2/. Light a match or other flame source under it.

3/. If it snarls crackles and pops, the oil you have purchased is a LOW Quality recyled crap that will damage your motor. Recycled oil cannot be cracked(petrochemical term) and therefore can contain Mono hydrodi- oxide, a chemical that is actually very abundant, We cannot live without it but it kills hundreds of people around the world annually. When emulsified with engine oil it can be catastrophic to the moving parts.
Its amazing stuff as it is added with full government support into nearly all of our edible consumables.
OOOPS I digress,
4/. If it doesn't snap crackle or pop its good oil priced according to the number of colours used on the container and the number of great sounding chemical names printed on the label


Apparently we here in Oz have knowledge of a large conglomerate with huge stockpiles of the monohydrodioxide oil laced with sodium chloride in the lower US states and is desperate to sell this lot off to the best bidder. Be aware be very aware when buying cheap no name branded oil, especially down south. If in doubt remember the test, it really does work.

Getting ready to do my first oil change on my SWing (used, 24K) and was going to ask about Rotella (used it in my Vulcan and it worked well-engine redline at 8500 rpm w/70 mph at 5200 rpm).

Glad I read this all the way through and didn't actually ask the question!!!

I've never had virgin olive oil on the pillion of my motorcycles, but most of us have tried to entice a virgin or two for a ride. That could start a whole new thread.:lol!:

It has around my area.

Gotta love oil threads!
EVOO, yes, tastier connecting rods and crispier valves!
Of course, Orville Redenbacher butter flavor popcorn oil smells great while riding! Laughing

Not that I advocate its use for anyone else but I tend to like the BMW semi-synthetic motorcycle oil.

WOW what does the beemer oil tase like? can you fry chips in it?

US read "Chips" (proper term) as French frys (ARRRGH try telling that to the shielas at Maccas, goes for tomato sauce and ketchup too)

I recently asked for an "egg and bacon" roll at breakfast and got a blank stare until I asked for a "bacon and egg" roll at Maccas. MMMM now I am hungry, I wonder what oil Maccas frys their whatevers with.

It has a nutty flavour with a hint of castor oil and an slight fruity aftertaste. You can fry chips with it but the flavour lends itself best to a to a deep fried strudel, preferably strawberry.

Also know as pomme fritz.
