that particular oil, the 20W-50 v-twin is exceptionally good.
see, look at how it rated among other top oils

I have used bel ray in other motorcycles and they make good products the only problem is the price is it better than casterol or vilvoline

im going to stay with synthetic forever, i did notice a huge difference in switching, mine runs smoother, quieter, and not as hot

that's the synthetic. as much as i change oil it's hard to justify a really expensive oil.
i change it about every other ride it seems.

I was told once you run synthetic through a machine you should never go back to conventional. Any truth to that?
