Synthetic oil-R1200RT ...............What Brand of Oil?


Recommended Posts

Mobil 1 15-50 Synthetic, available at Wallmart.


And it is an old wives tale waiting until 12,000 or some such mileage to switch over.

Most Syn oils are pretty good. You will get many opinions on which is best.


I have been using Amsoil 20-50 for years because it works. I believe it is the only truely synthetic oil. Amsoil comes out on top of every side by side test.

I agree with Greg. I also have been using Amsoil for years. I have heard though, that BG Products have come out with a full synthetic that they say beats Amsoil confused.gif. Big question mark for me. I would wait until 6K to 10K before switching.

No need for the dealership recommended 3k oil changes, either. They still had my ST on the floor (8k recommended oil changes!) and tried to tell me that I should change mine at 3,000 miles. I asked if the tranny ran in the engine oil like the ST (and reminded them of the 8,000 mile recommended changes)? Razor blades? A special oil-sheer attachment inside the engine? They just shrugged, like I'm going to do when I try to buy an oil filter wrench from 'em.


I'm going to use Delvac (Silver bottle). Always have.
