I run 98RON in all my engines, better fuel economy and the engine stays cleaner.
Oil is entirely your personal preference.
I run semi-synthetic motorcycle oil in all my engines.
I don't have any brand preference.
15W-50 or thereabouts is fine.

Re: Advise 954 Blade

All the info you need is in the manual

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.

Re: Advise 954 Blade

I've had my 954 for 10 years now and always run 95 octane simply because fuel is extortionate here in the UK @ currently 1.34 per ltr and its cheaper than premium .

I have always stuck with semi-synthetic 10-40 Silkolene comp4 or Castrol GPS or Motul 5000 depends on the deal at the time and do regular oil changes.

Enjoy your bike a good choice you have made.

Re: Advise 954 Blade

1.27 down here in Engerlund, i remember when it was less for a gallon

I've always used Halfords own 10w40 semi, and change every 4k miles, filter every other oil change.

I tried that out for a while. Switched to Motul 5100 - the difference in shifting was amazing.

Re: Advise 954 Blade

You guys in the UK would run different weight oil than us, you don't get our 45C summers, and our winters sometimes get down below 10C ;-)

Re: Advise 954 Blade

Thanks Guys, unfortunatly I didnt get a Manual with my bike so seeking advise from you guys, since I have spoken to a few more riders of Gixxas and R1's they say they are all using Premium 98Ron so Im going to run with this.
next question is for me to work out what oil to go with too many options I dont mind Paying good money for the best.

Bikes don't come with manuals, you have to buy it yourself.
Owner's manual calls for 15W-40, 15W-50, 20W-40 or 20W-50 for our conditions - 0C to 40C+.
