Amsoil anyone?

Who all runs Amsoil in their RCs? I have run it in every bike I own and have no complaints.

I have run Amsoil in my previous bikes without a problem. I am currently running Rotella T Synthetic in the RC and it works fine...

Rotella T is for diesel engines and heavy equipment.
I'd be careful, as many automotive oils have anti-friction additives that could damage the wet clutch plates.

The Shell oil you might ought to try is Shell Advance Ultra 4 full synthetic for bikes.

Loads of guys use it on the FZ1OA forum without a single problem, it is cheaper than most other reputable synthetic oils, and it meets the specs described in the owner's manual.

Sub - there are no friction reducers in this oil...

Here's a link to a thread with an oil analysis of the Rotella T: http://www.yamahafz1oa.com/forum/sho...hlight=rotella

Ok the real reason I asked this is because I am an Amsoil dealer, I sell at dealer cost, so if you need some oil please let me know!

Amsoil is certainly good stuff, when I lived in Duluth I used to get it straight from the factory in Superior...

Good luck!
