I had to take a picture just as it turned over 500 miles.

What Syn. oil should I use now?

Synthetic oil

Well friend, you are on your own here, I always use straight 40 organic, and would use old-fashioned 50 wt racing oil if I had any left.

Hmmmm...I thought everyone was using Synthetic after break in. One of these days I'll quit listening to Dave.

I use Shell 40Wt. I tried Mobil One [synthetic] for a while, but the net result was less money in my pocket. I ran the same motor on the dyno with straight 40 Wt in the morning and Mobil One [synthetic]in the afternoon and the top speed was the same.

Congrats on the first 500 miles.

Ive been running Shell 40 wt in it. If there's no benefit, I might as well keep on using it.

Thanks!
