only the best for my bikes !

My dad swears by Mobil 1 in his side by side i haven't made the switch yet if I do end up going that route think ill still use OEM filters just for safety...

just figured I would ask about oil, gotta have something to do the next couple weeks off work going to be cold as a witches heart figured I would tinker with my bikes in front of the heater maybe a cold spew or 12 in the process.. thanks for all the input ...

Why ROFL... , all he asked is what engine oil everybody is using .
This is NOT an oil thread..
So far = 50 Km I always used 10W40 Motul synthetic with OEM oil filter bought from Honda dealer.....
As of next season, I may use synthetic 10W30 with OEM oil filter (always)

RE: What kind of oil is everybody running
First oil change was Honda GN4.
Got 4 quarts of GN4 for the next oil change (February-March?), as I have done 2140 miles in 7 weeks, thus far.
After that, plan to switch to Honda pure synthetic HP4S before summer in Las Vegas.

The HP4S is $10.99 a quart from local Honda dealer. Decision is a toss-up with Castrol Power One, about the same price from AutoZone or O'Reilly's.

Recent bikes:
2014 Honda CB110 standard (new 7 Nov 2017)
2018 Yamaha XT250
2016 Moto Guzzi V7II
2017 Yamaha TW200
2012 Triumph Bonneville
2002 Harley-Davidson Sportster 1200 Sport
2003 Harley-Davidson Sportster XLH883
