Synthetic or no synthetic
There are alot of "talking papers" endorsing the virtues of Synthetic for bikes, but I see no real "Dirt Experience" represented in any of them. Amsoil claims to have tested their oil in a YZ450F, and found it acceptable. This is true for some of the other sites I looked at as well.
Can any real Dirt Riders/Racers verify that Syn can be run in a wet plate bike? I want to change my YZ450F over, if possible, to try to decrease the engine temp and would love to know if it will handle it? By all the comments I've read, Yamalube is junk, and regular car oil is not much better.
Let me know what your experience is, and all recommendations provided will be appreciated.
