Could anyone tell me which oil to use in my 88 1100j, I've put a semi-synth in there now but I dunno if thats ok . . .

Or should I just use a standard 10/40 oil ?

semi-synth is fine, full synth (certain ones, at least) would be even better. some aftermarket clutches and certain synths don't agree with each other.

I have an 86 750 that I use Mobil 1 15-50 car oil synthetic and have no problems if search oil on google there is some interesting articles. It seems to shoot down a lot of myths re certian oils and wet clutchs the 15-50 is okay for me because I do not ride in cold weather and the synth 15 flows fairly well untill it gets very cold I would not use non synth that is that heavy

yeah, i used to, but it's only a semi synthetic, and for the price it goes for, you can get a full synth like mobil 1 mx4t.
