Question What kind of oil do you use ???

I took my bike to the dealer to do some work and I ask for an oil change, when I asked for synthetic oil, they told me it is not recommended, the factory recommends 10-40w suzuki petrolatum oil.

Do you guys use synthetic oil?

Best,

Re: What kind of oil do you use ???

Hey, I know you're new to the site but there are a billion "which oil" threads. Not trying to be a dick, just letting you know. If you search you can read up on previous replies. Millions use synthetic so you'll be fine. As long as you change your oil on a regular basis you can use whatever oil you want. Synthetic or conventional.

Don't take your bike back there.

Any JASO approved oil is good to go.

Many use synthetic with great results, Dino works fine as well. The key is not to use oil that is energy conserving as it can cause clutch issues.

That Suzuki brand is very over priced. I'm sure the dealer makes a healthy profit on it.

Use 10-40w dino oil and you're good to go.

Synthetic oils (including fork oil) FTW. I believe synthetic oils degrade slower (and last longer) comparing to mineral oils.
