I thought it was kind of odd also, but I just said that I would be changing oils's....I didn't specify what oil I would be changing to. My only question is though, is that I was told not to run synthetic oils in my brute by my dealer do to sythetics not doing good in the brutes, and even though this has kind of turned out to be somewhat of a debate, I have had several people tell me that they run sythetic's in the brutes and havn't had any problems. All I can say is that I want the best oil for my brute, and I am willing to pay a little extra now, then have to pay alot extra later (sounds like a Fram commercial...lol). I am useing the Valvoline four stroke oil, but will be changing that at my next service interval.
Another thing I found interesting is that the only manufactor oil that they used in the testing was the Yama Lube, what about the rest of the manufactors oils (ie, Kawa Chem, etc.)
I would be more inclined to beleive that Amsoil would be the best if the tests had been ran by an idependant lab that didn't have anytype of favortism to a specific oil. IBBruin, you my friend are right, things that make you go hmmmm?...lol.
