Just out of interest what brand of engine oil is everyone using? Obviously 10w40, but I wondered if anyone has had better results with different oil? I'm just about to do a change, and I'm using ASDA bog standard 10w40, purely because it doesn't have additives in it, which can foul up motorcycle clutches.

I use bike spec motul 10w40 semi.... it's the cheapest bike type I am find and it's only £20 inc filter so I change is every 6 months.

Seems a fairly contentious subject.
Whatever pal, your bike, do what the fuck you want with it. Dont ask for an opinion if you've already made your mind up.
I didn't ask for an opinion
Let me know how you get on, I've got a load of Halfords semi 10w40 and wondering wether to use that
Still, I have just checked the forums and people are using tesco oil lol. Nothing about it in the service manual. Maybe I'll get some bike specific oil.
Asked the poster you dim wit
Price has gone up since I last bought some then.
Get this all the time ben. I worked in an engineering firm and studied lubricant fundamentals. If people want to save a fiver its up to them, they think its all a conspiracy theory by the oil companies but dont know what the fuck there talking about. I regret responding to these posts because there is always one bloke ( Jack Daniel Jess) who, despite knowing sod all about oil, still wont be told.
Know sod all
Silkoline comp 4 nothing else if you love it treat it right .
Well thank you for your input Andrew.
Bet you never thought asking such a simple question could cause such a stir Ben!! In my opinion motorcycle specific oil every time! My local mechanic says it's better using cheaper motorcycle specific oil than expensive car oil
http://www.nightrider.com/biketech/oiltest1.htm I've seen evidence to both sides of the debate, but I actively sought people's opinions, and I'm thankful that people took the time. I think I'm at a point where I know what I'm going to do, so thanks everyone.
