VRCC SHOP TALK: Oil Change
If you want to get an argument started about motorcycle oil, just ask a group of Valkriders whether Synthetic or Dinosaur oil is best for their engines.
You'll find some very, very strong opinions on these issues.
The fact is that the choice is yours.
There are very good automotive motor oils that some of my friends use in their motorcycle, while others wouldn't even THINK of putting something in their engines that didn't say clearly on the label that is was created specifically for motorcycles. Some of my friends are completely sold on the fact that synthetic motorcycle oil doesn't break down as quickly and wouldn't use anything else - in their motorcycles. Others choose to stick with the dinosaur oil. As long as you choose a top-of-the-line oil product that meets the specs for your engine, the choice is yours.
