I've only used the Zuki 10/40, but reading good things about 20w/50. I've got 1200 miles and changed it once. Thanks for any input!!

I will check the brand, I think its Valvoline (motorcycle oil ) plus Lucas oil addictive.
About the way my parts arrived today!! I will be working on the bike tomorrow, hopefully I will have it ready for a afternoon ride!!!

Oh yea this thread was about oil.Well last year I was running 10-40, last friday after finally putting her back together and I took her out for a crank on last years oil. Saturday when I got home from work,I changed the oil with 20-50 went out for a ride and can't beleive the difference.Smoother and quieter.Does make a difference.:bigthumbsup:

Yeah! 20/50 does make the engine run so much smoother!! I do add Lucas oil addictive, just about 10%.
