Have had good luck with T6 in everything from Cummins semi to Briggs/Straton lawn mowers and everything in between including 4 stroke motorcycles.

You can order it directly from Amsoil.com

$13/qt for signature series
$52/gallon
$18/filter

I spec'd out 6 quarts of oil and a filter it would be $111 with shipping and tax.

If you spend over $100 they waive the $8.99 shipping charge (it was $96.30 before shipping :ybrick:)

Just food for thought if you decide Amsoil is worth it to you. It may not be.

Much less if you "join the club" and become a Preferred Customer. Also helps to not buy single quarts...a case of 4 gallons @ PC prices gets the cost to about $9 per quart.

Same here, been using it for years. I've only had one bike where the clutch wasn't happy with it. Still worked but was real notchy with T6.

Yeah definitely. I buy the 30 gallon drums of 5w20 and 5w30 and do the group ship which is free freight and delivery. It's all I'll use now, but understand to some it may not be worth the extra little effort or cost. Our fleet hasn't had a single engine related issue (aside from grenading internal chain driven waterpumps at 350k) in the 10 or 11 years since we made the switch. Prior to that I had a few issues at the 280 to 300k mark on a couple 4.6l town car motors. (chain guides, low compression) from the previous owner running Motorcraft semi syn. Swapping at 5k intervals (royal pain in my ass with the mileage we run)

Any Dexos 2 labeled oil on sale at Walmart and the YZZD3 filter will do. Change every 5-6k miles.

2x on any Dexos oil on sale with oem filter. Costco has 10qt of their Kirkland synthetic for $25 right now. Kirkland synthetic is a Warren Distribution oil.

amazon oil is also warren dist... same as walmarts supertech, at least in the greater upper & lower midwest area. both are very good oils proven in use & from oil analysis. supertech might be a little cheaper.
