    I swapped to motul synthetic 10 40. I am finding my busa gets more 2nd gear falses when my bike is hot and only when it's hot. I'm going to go heavier oil on the next change.

    I don't use oil. It just slows the bike down and it shifts very light. I just spit in the oil filler hole, plug it and I'm off! I'm getting 3000-400 an engine!

    I spit in the oil filter hole after eating some greasy BBQ, and I'm getting about 10,000 miles on a motor, and the exhaust smell good too!

    Ok before someone blows up their Busa I was joking! There are so many oil threads it was sort of me being an ass. There are a million choices out there and they are all acceptable. The question is not which brand, it's how often you change it. Change it as often as you afford to.

    I don't care what brand oil people use I want to know what the manual says. I will be surprised if it says non synthetic for the Gen 2.

    Maybe it does but I know that to be BS. But if it's that important to you there are many places to get to a manual........
