I've tried many different oils over the years but this stuff is liquid gold. Wow, I'm impressed. Expensive but my bikes are worth it and even the glass window approves.

Have you tried this oil?

I use it in all my bikes. Owned my 1996 ZX7R and RR since new and used it right after slight break in period of 1500km. It is expensive but I swear by it. JMHO.

I only run it in my track bike. I change my oil often enough that I'm comfortable with Castrol semi-synth in my street bikes.

The odd one is I only run Amsoil in my Harley. It is worth 10 degrees less temperature to run it.

I used it in BW II a time or two. Same thing as Kawachem Syn. Good stuff.

The KTM just got a dry-sumpfull of Motul 7100 10W60.

Yes, I have tried it...... its a fine oil, I just didnt like how my gearbox shifted afterwards. So now, for me, its either Redline or Royal Purple.

I almost passed out when I saw the price of this oil at a local shop. I bought my case elsewhere but shit the price per liter is insane. I paid $18 per Liter.

Well..wait I did say liquid gold? 馃槂

I dont know where you shop Will but Amazon has Motul 300V for $58.60 for 4 litres, free shipping, IF you have their Prime account


Royal Purple Max Cycle $12.99 a quart, plus shipping.
Redline Motorcycle oil $16.99 a quart, plus shipping

Because of this, I change my oil every other summer now, but I totally get EZ's decision to go Valvoline. If I was going to go "cheaper", Valvoline would be the go too choice for me as well. I run either Castrol or Valvoline in all my cars.

Yeah pretty good deal on Amazon there. I'm a prime member too so I'll considered that on the next round.

I've tried Mobil 1, Amsoil, Honda MC oil, Castrol, Cheaper version of Motul, and Yamalube over the years.

Yes. I use 300V now in my ZX9R. 15W50. A big improvement over Castrol Power 1 and Elf Moto 4 XT Tech, and Castrol GPS. Motul claims an additional 2.5hp on the top end. It seems to rev more freely than other oils, you can feel the power increase. Good for longevity for street riders. A YouTube video shows a 2014 CBR1000RR owner who put 8500 miles on the oil and sent the used oil out for analysis. It was still good! No more changing the oil at 3000 miles. Try eBay for the lowest price.

That's partly why I decided to try 300V. I believe I've seen that video; pretty impressive results.

Agreed eBay and Amazon found to have the better priced 300V compared to other places.
