Best oil to use????

nearing time for an oil change on my bike. Undecided on which oil to use. Does anyone have a suggestion on what to use? I'm leaning towards full synthetic castrol.....any other suggestions?

MMMMM, a tread about oil for the SV. Has this EVER been discussed here before?

Perhaps a search is in order?

LOL

Rotella is the sh*t according to some. Apparently it does everything including increase libido, increases a full cup size for the ladies, prevents acne, cures rabies, grows back limbs, removes warts and makes a great contraceptive to name but a few uses. Oh and you can put it in your SV if you so desire.

This elixir truly is the wonder of modern man ... and yes, I do use Rotella. Why? Its oil and it's as cheap as anything else and sells at Wally's

Re: Best oil to use????

Rotella t synthetic is readily available, relatively cheap, and great for wet clutch motorcycles like the sv. About $20 for a gallon jug....yes a gallon jug it is made for diesel trucks that take a lot of oil and for some reason it's sold in quart or gallon jugs and every else is quart or 5 quart. Blue jug, can't miss it and I get it a wal-mart. I use the oem Suzuki filter cause they are always in stock. I will probably get k&n next time, they aren't much more.

Re: Best oil to use????

You can go to your local napa and get a power sport filter they have done great for me been using them for about 15,000 miles and at about 8 or 9 bucks pretty good on price and let me state this again...
