Thank you, Ron.*SNIP*Only one I've had done was the 600 mile break-in where I got the bike at Sloan's in M'boro. Do not recall how much of the service charge was the oil change. Went back there because they will do it while you browse if you get in early enough and wanted to look at some accessories anyway.
I see this alot on other MC forums too, but I don't recall anyone actually reporting a problem. Certainly I could have missed it.Just be sure you do not put anything in the bike that has "Energy Conserving" low friction additives common in car oils as it will mess up the wet clutch.
I've never had a problem and the manufacturers never say not to use them.I see this alot on other MC forums too, but I don't recall anyone actually reporting a problem. Certainly I could have missed it.
For me, it's no biggie to pay a bit more for MC oil, but my point is that I think it might be more an urban legend or "theoretically possible" thing than a real big issue. FWIW, I'm typically a "use what the book" says sort of guy with regard to specs so again, it's FWIW...
