luumac Posted August 15, 2011 Report Share Posted August 15, 2011 I was talking with a mechanic today about motorcycle engine oils. He recommends a semi-blend but not full synthetic (which can cause clutch slippage but can stand greater temperatures). He also recommends that I stick to one brand since there are variants in additives, etc from brand to brand. The last oil change my bike got was full synthetic, because the previous owner of the bike said he switched it to full syn. I've heard that once you switch to full, you shouldn't switch back to mineral. My question is: Is it ok to switch to a semi-blend, or should I just keep it with full synthetic? Also, what brand would you recommend (I was planning to use Mobil1 4T racing and stick with that)? my bike is a 2001 ninja zx6r Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
