Re: Amsoil Review - Ima gonna catch hell for this post...
I have a Motorcycle Consumer News article from last year that tested a whole bunch of different oils. They are, if your not familiar, a straight shooter magazine. They don't bow to anybody. In this very article they made a point of "not recommending" any one oil, but gave the results and let the reader make up their own mind.
The Amsoil faired far better than the Honda oil and many others. It was right in line with the Motul. Even a little better in a couple of tests than the Motul. I ran Amsoil after reading the article for most of last year (Motul previous to that) and was very happy with the oil. A couple of friends with 929s and 954s put it in when I told them to give it a try and they are very pleased as well.
Obviously, I bet the Honda oil works just fine. But, if you run em' a little hard like I do at the track then a little better oil certainly can't hurt. I've stayed with the Amsoil because it gets delivered right to my door along with some filters from them and since I still do frequent oil changes because of track time it doesn't cost as much as the Motul I was using.
Knee down, is a corner taken!
