Royal Purple is great stuff, not usually as locally available though, and more expensive. Mobil is awesome, relatively cheap, and at most stores. Mobil is great stuff, don't let this thread deter you...RP, M1, Amsoil....all great, amongst others. I've used M1 almost exclusively in all my vehicles, motorcycles, and small engine equipment always and never an issue with it. I also use RP in my buell as the bike runs very hot, and RP does a great job at lowering operating temp.

I use castrol syntex and have never had a prob. I now have 25000 miles on and have used it since the first oil change at 2400 miles. I change every 4500-5000 miles even though I know I could go much further on the synthetic oil, I like to keep it clean. Only use 5w20 like the owners manual says and everything will be good.
