Oh well, since it don't make any difference what I use, I will just stick with my Chevron Delo 400.

If it is good enough for my Cummins, it is good enough for my bike.

Most all of the diesel grade oils are SG rated. I've never had a problem with going to Wally World and getting some.

Thanks Lester!!! Great info!!! I was looking for GS and couldn't find it in Advance Auto. I will just ask for diesel oil!

It seems so strange to me , That a Bike ownercan avoidworrying about the price of a cup of coffee or a six pack or any other unnecessary vices that we all have. But when it comes too four quarts of oil once or twice a " YEAR " Thats where they are going to draw the line and cheap out and start saving money .

So ,Unless you are doing 20 oil changes a year , It's seems Rediculess to worry about the price of a Quart of Oil. I Personally will stay with the best Oil I can find and still buy my six pack and cup's of coffee, Because Engine rebuilds areExtremely Expensive ...
