No bashing from me I am delighted to hear about your experience. I've been thinking about Mobile 1 V-twin 20W50 and I was waiting to hear first hand how well it performs vs. 10W40. Did you buy your oil from a local dealer?

I switched to it when I did the 600 mile service. Have done 600 miles since then and so far, the shifting is less notchy but still clunks and the engine is much quieter.

I use Amsoil in every vehicle i own,2 bikes,2 cars and a riding mower.I swear by this stuff.

I use the 20-50 in my bikes along with the proper gear oil(cant remeber the weight) and it really smoothes out the engine noise's and the shifting(some what).Great stuff in my opinnion.

The proper AMSOIL Gear Lube would be Product Code SVG which is a High Performance 75W-90 . There was a price increase July 1st and is now $8.50 per qt.

10W-40 is the recommended oil. AMSOIL has 2 10W-40 M/C oils. The M/C Specific oil, Product Code MCF, is $74.40 per case of 12

AMSOIL also has 2 20W-50 M/C oils. M/C Specific, Product Code MCV, is $77.40 per case of 12

Freight is about $8.75 for a case, no sales tax except FL if purchased directly through me.

I still have several qts of Amsoil gear lube from when back in my dealer days. I did a second motor oil change at 1200 miles and noticed the metal shavings were none existant on the drain plug magnets this go around. I used Repsol 10-50w full synthetic. I got it onsale at Cycle Gear along with a k & n oil filter, I love that nut on the end. shifting already feels better.

i use the mobil 1 mx4t 10w-40 and love it. by the way non-energy conserving. a little expensive but worth it. i think that mobil 1 v-twin stuff was primarily designed for harleys. i'll stick to the 10w-40 since thats what suzuki recommends. :bigthumbsup: :super: :doorag:

who pissed in your cereal? don't jump down my throat. if you read the book that came with YOUR bike it says suzuki RECOMMENDS...yes RECOMMENDS 10w-40 and if its NOT AVAILABLE select an ALTERNATIVE according to the chart(page 2-4). your little 20w-50 hot weather oil is an ALTERNATIVE to 10w-40. suzuki only recommends this oil if your in a pinch and cant find 10w-40. you should learn the facts before offering advice. what did we learn by all this...yes mobile is pushing this oil to harleys, as i see it in the dealerships. by the way, who said harleys have wet clutches?  ::)

:D hum,,,sounds like your the one with the red arse !!! i was just simply stating what worked for me,,,, if the bike runs smoother,shifts better and alot quietier,wouldnt you think suzuki would have recomended 20-50 instead of 10-40 ?? maybe they should have, and i was not flaming you so take a chill,relax and enjoy this site and all the info you might get from it !!! :bigthumbsup:

no harm no foul. i just didnt appreciate the way you came at me like i dont know about this bike or harleys for that matter. you have to understand when you come at somebody to insult their intelligence, you are gonna recieve some responses you may not like. i go by manufacturer recommendations in all my toys, which includes a harley. ive been on this site from the beginning and have learned alot. use the search feature so you can too. so welcome to the site and enjoy. have a nice day!  :bigthumbsup: :super: :doorag:
