I use to use Mobil 1 15w-50 (car oil) in my race bike...... I'll probably end up using Mobil 1 MX4T in my street bike. Walmart Sells Mobil 1 MX4T 10w-40 so that makes it a bit more convienient.....

Engineered for on-road, off-road and competition four-cycle motorcycles. Key benefits of Mobil 1® MX4T 10W-40:

Helps provide optimum acceleration and peak horsepower.

Scientifically developed high-performance additive system.

thanks everyone.

i ended up getting the suzuki oil at the shop when i picked up my filter. crap! that reminds me...i have to order a k&n air filter too. the oil was only $1-something...i put mobil one in my car, but i've never had great success switching over from reg to syn oils in older cars so i'll just stick with the suzuki oil.

thanks again!

cheers!
