Why not switch at 600miles or rite away? I ve been told (with cars) you should switch on mile one if you plan on running full synthetic. Due to the fact that the molocules in syn are much smaller alowing the motor to break in with tighter tolerances. Dont know if thats true or not? Brake in with dino oil and its large molcules creates wider tolerances? any truth to this?
On the same note Ive been told its a no no when breaking in a bike, why?
-Thanks

Motors will never properly break in on straight syn. Its too slippery to ruff up the linings and rings. Thats why you switch after the break in period. Is that Cuban oil or just regular arab oil??

yea i got it from them....their regular oils are priced ok but their synthetics are a tad more than other places...., i paid around 10 per qt... but i had no other choice since i was in a rush and needed an oil change fast.... since i am going to Drag race the bike tonite...

If you want a good synthetic for a reasonable price, Use the Shell rotella t-syth 5w-40 by the gallon at walmart. Someone started another "what oil you use" thread on the general forum too. Check it.

Run Valvoline 10w40 standard automotive oil for regular oil.
Mobile1 MX4T for full synth, unless you wanna pay more. Then go to Cycle Gear, I think the Motul shit is like $12 a qt.
