ROFL Yep, here we go again, another oil thread. This should be good Big Grin
In my own opinion modern oils are so good that there isn't much to choose between them.
I've used Castrol for years, Amsoil for years and Motul for years. All with excellent results.
I'm mainly using Motul now as it's easily available in 4L quantities from a Canadian online supplier with free shipping right to my door in a couple of days.

Still rockin', rollin', and ridin' after all these years

What are you guys talking about?? My CB doesn't use oil. Or leak, either. Lets not start any rumors.

Sounds like oil threads are this forums version of calling out for “freebird” at the end of a concert here in the south :-)

Mobile 1 4 cycle oil 10W-40
I'm pretty sure I read all of the older oil threads, seems the "go to" standard is the Honda oil. Can't go wrong there. I've had really good luck (it seems) with the Mobile 1 in my ATV's and cars. So why change now.
