Shell Rotella Synthetic $19, JASO MA rated (that means motorcycle!)
Puralator PL14612 $6, same psi as OEM, more filtering surface area, same size.
Both can be purchased at Peb Boys.

Do any reviews, the Rotella Synthetic is just as good as higher brand oils, waaaay cheaper. I've been using it for years, in everything I own. Never an oil related failure. No metal shavings, I always get 45-47mpg, no clutch slip, engine temps the same, other oils made no difference, except in my wallet.

Hell, I'm an Amsoil dealer, Amsoil is amazing, just cost waaay more! R&D!!!!

I'm just trying to save everyone some $$, especially if you're someone who changes oil every 2K. I don't change till 4K, FTW!

Rotella has been a proven moto oil for years. Walmart has the gallon jugs as well.

I've been using the Purolator One PL14612 or 14610 ever since my first oil change, which was about 40,000 miles ago.

The filter use to come in a very nice Yamaha Blue which matched my bike. But about a year ago, they changed the color to gold. Yuk, but I just spray paint the filter with black paint, a day before install. Now it just blends in with the engine.

Marcus,
Why are you using that one? I read the Purolator PL16818 (now ML16818) has a rubber nitrile drain back valve, the other Purolator's have silicone valves. But the 818's are black...stock look.

If you can afford the room the PL14610 (3.5 in) is better than the PL14612 (2.5 in).

All the above are still $6
