i believe in frequent non-synthetic oil changes. being from the northeast, my brand of choice has always been spectro. that being said when i used to race harley sportsters, a class where one or two hp is a huge gain, we used to run $8 a quart dealer cost royal purple oil. it actually made a difference of over 1hp on the dyno in back to back runs.

Red Line full synthetic is what I will change to. 10w-40 in the 1098
I run it in the Monster and the Brutale.

Mobil 1 R4T 10W40
This is what I plan on using, I like Mobil one products and use them in my other bike.

I think after reading and thinking things over I plan to break the bike in with non-synthetic oil.

Just the way I break in engines is to use a non-synthetic for about 2000 to 2500 miles and then switch to a fully synthetic!
I want to make good and sure she is fully broken in!!
