what are you hoping the switch will do for you? aside from drain your wallet a little further?

Have been reading up and it seems fully synthetic is a better option,also,I’ve noticed my current oil getting very dark in only 1500 miles

the purpose of your engine oil is to keep your engine free from particulate deposition. if your oil is NOT getting dark, it's not working.



honda's engineers produce some of the finest and most reliable small engines in the world, and they recommmend you use semi synth GN4.


spending more on oil will reduce your net worth, not much more than that. marketing is very strong and many go for it, but using 300v in your street bike is pissing away your money

Yes full synthetic is better. Which brand really doesn't matter. I go with whatever is cheapest at the time, so usually mobil1 or valvoline.
Oil serves a much larger purpose then keeping your engine clean, but Wibbly is 100% correct in that the color of your oil doesn't matter and is supposed to get darker.

'06 F4i- Yoshimura RS-3C, Racetech springs and valves, Ohlin's rear shock, steel brake lines, 520 conversion. 87k miles and counting.....
'08 600RR- Stripped trackbike. CRG shorty brake lever, goodridge front brake lines
'15 1000RR- weekend toy
