as the topic insists. I went to 2 places today and couldnt find an oil without the energy conserving written on it. So i was wondering where does everyone buy their oil, also if you could name the oil you use.

I was also wondering is it necessary to use a center stand to change the oil, i dont have one and was wondering if it is and if it is how do i do it without buying one?

btw first time changing my own oil on my bike.

i buy my oil from me b'coz i sell 'em, since i buy what i sell i get to pay it at wholesale prices isn't that great? :D

btw i'm a Repsol dealer & i use Repsol Racing 4T 10W-50 full synthetic.

you should look at the vendors from this site they sell the good stuff like Repsol, Motul, Silkolene, Castrol.

i buy mine at o'reileys, walmart, auto zone. you can run synthetic as long as the bike is "broke in". do a search you will find all the info you need. i run mobile. some run repsol, some motul.

This is my 3rd oil change and I'm going to use the same Repsol oil. I was using Castrol Syn-Tec. I had a hard time tracking down Repsol oil here. I found one dealership that had it and they are phasing it out. I'll have to buy online from now on if I like the results. Shell Rotella is pretty popular for our bikes too and I find that in every Pep Boys and Strauss that I visit.

Thanks guys, the task at hand has been done and she runs even better than i thought now. i went with the castrol syntec, only think i could find. The damn oil filter was a bitch to get off though i worked at it for 45 minutes to get it undone without taking the fairing off. The thing is i had my 600 mile done at the dealship they must of put that bitch back on there tight as ****. but i got it off and all is good. thank for the help

Dang at cost! I gotta get a job at your dealership! lol..

+1 for hp4...Good enough for the factory race team..Good enough for me..(I'm actually not sure if they run the same stuff, but they run the sticker, so good enough for me:) haha

I just switched to Shell Rotella Synthetic (blue bottle) recently. I heard great reviews on it. So far so good. And the price is not bad either (like $17 for a gallon at walmart).

honda dealer-GN4 dino oil. I dont bother with synthetic since I change it so often (due to running the track so often 8^).

leave it on the side stand, dont bother removing any bodywork, not necessary...
