    Good Oil

    Changed over to this oil, and found the bike to perform better, shifting was smoother than it ever has been. Seems to do a great job overall.

          Comments about Valvoline 4-Stroke 10W-40 Motorcycle Oil (1 Quart):

          I've used this motorcycle oil in all the motorcycles I've had. works fine in the hayabusa, Yamaha 600, and the gs-500.Never any problems with the oil in any of the bikes. I had 15000 miles on the gs500 when I got rid of it and no issues, shifted just as good as the suzuki oil that came with it. I've used the oil in my 05 Suzuki hayabusa, and never any issues.It has run up to 11000 rpms and I go 4000-5000 miles on an oil change. I have used this oil for over 15000 miles on the hayabusa and the bike has over 26000 miles on it. When it needs another oil change this is going back in. The 600 is getting ready for another oil change with this oil. As far as I am concerned it is good for air cooled twins, and 4 cylinder water cooled bikes.
