I know its been discussed elsewhere, so why not discuss it here..
The previous owner always ran Rotella Im guess the white bottle.. But Id like to run something else maybe Amsoil, Royal Purple ext...My neighbor swears by Honda products.. For the price, I can probably get something better..

What oil for the engine and what oil for the tranny..

I am a huge fan of Motul oil. No argument, it makes HP and comes out cleaner them any other oil I have ever uses. NEVER black! It goes in lime green, comes out lime green.

I hate Amsoil so much and their MLM marketing scheme I should ban the word. They lie, cheat and deceit their customers.

A lot of people love Rotella

I use rotella, well because of its popularity and its cost, but as much as I ride...which is probably less than most of you, i would not be opposed to using something better, any suggestions and why?

Honda blood in the trans and Honda synthetic in the motor. I have a friends @ honda so i dont pay the jacked up costs for it. If I didnt get the discount id run rotella both sides. Even the rep from Rekluse recommends rotella.

does rotella rob power or something? i saw somebody said it's not dyno friendly and HQ is claiming to get performance gains from his Motul......is there something i'm missing? my oil is slower than your oil?

It is possible .. Even different weights will show different on a dyno. Will we ever feel it on the butt dyno no, but for someone looking to squeeze every last bit of hp Yes. Using a oil like motul will help.

I would be lieing if I told you a # but i would say 1 or less. Its kinda a drag racing thing when ya running for time. Every little thing adds up

I use 300v in my motor and transoil expert in my tranny. I saw .73 HP on my 05 build. I was talking to a builder who saw over 1.5HP on a YFZ build the other day.

I'm going to do an oil comparison on the dyno with bone stock, and lightly.modded bikes with filter changes between each run

i can get that Amsoil for 12 a quart at the local Do It Best store, but i usually get the Rotella for $3 a quart....i don't know why? :thinker:

honestly, i run rotella because it's what everybody on the interwebz does and it is also cheap, and i like the way it looks coming out.....sounds nasty......

It's just a quality oil, that saves money as often as i change it.
