can you find Amsoil at the dealer? I was thinking about the mobil 1 because you can find it at most Advance Auto/ pep boys, etc...

Rotella T. I ran it in my 08 ZX6R for over 30,000 miles and I run it in my 2010.

Amsoil is an awesome oil (probably the best), especially in vehicles when you dont want to change your oil as frequently as the factory suggests, but changing it every 3k in a bike is a waste of a lot money.

That's my opinion...please don't come steal my firstborn.
