For those of you replying...he is not asking what oil you run. He is just asking what you think of Amsoil....

Amsoil is great oil, I've ran it for years. But it's not as good as Repsol. :)

i knew that was coming!I know, but it's true. Repsol has the slipperiest API rating of any oil. So much so that they have to include a friction modifier to their motorcycle oils to prevent clutch slippage. Another first for the industry. :)

I've been using amsoil for a long time. Best stuff I've used and I've used a lot but everyone has their favorites for different reasons. I get amsoil at dealer cost so it's not anymore expensive than every other premium oil out there. I'm getting ready to place another large order of amsoil myself.

I need to change my oil soon, but I already have Honda Repsol oil. I may try this oil next time around.
