      My '99 TBS has 26K miles and is sorely due for an oil change. The Mobil 1 I used to use ($10 l) is over my budget since times are tough, but I'm reluctant to go non-synthetic. Any cheaper synthetics on the market you all have liked?

        I believe that a synthetic base oil should do as well as a full synthetic like Mobil 1.  Look into Castrol. ________________________________ From:

            I've used both Amzoil and Mobile 1 in my bike. I switched to Mobil 1 only because I needed 10w50 and could not get it from my local Amzoil guy. In both cases I used their motorcycle oils instead of the regular auto version. I found a big difference. Auto oils are too slippery for wet clutches. It effects the shifting. Once I switched to cycle oil she started shifting smooth as silk.
