the local dealership was having a sale on torco t-4sr 10-40 oil. It says 100% synthetic on the bottle. it was only 6 bucks a quart. I have used the search and didn't find much on this brand. Has anyone ever tried this oil out before?

True....

I usually use the lightest oil possible that delivers protection. Use of a higher viscosity oil than necessary comes with it's own set of problems.. reduced fuel mileage, less HP, possible oil starvation.

The only time I would consider a 20W-50 is if it is a petroleum oil and I ride at highway speeds for an hour or more at a time.. I don't see me using a petroleum oil.
