0W Mobile one.
Thats just personal preference.
I was always a mobil1 fan and have been running mobil1 10w30 synthetic
for almost 3 years. I took the crank out and found some galling
on the small end of the rod. When I sent the crank out they said
it was prbably the synthetic oil. They recomended conventional.
I know guys that race 800hp cars that go out and buy your basic motorcycle oil for their engines, I figure if that engine can live off it, than my engine should be able to as well
Rosco, who is they. What crank company
What I usually find is that the crank and trans builders say use synthetic and then the camshaft guys tell you to run conventional oil.
Whatcha gonna do[img]smileys/smiley16.gif[/img]
I just bought a new falicon pro stock GS crank. They recommended synthetic in the 10 to 20 weight range.
I haven't decided what to do for oil either. Was leaning towards AMS oil or Mobil 1.
There are so many opinions it's hard to decide.
I used to run Kendall GT1 but they changed it and it hasn't been green for a while. Green was good.
I've been a big fan of Mobil 1 for years but have found Red Line's synthetic oil to be very good, my cams have never looked better !

I ran 40 weight Kendallconventionaloileven after it wasn't green, I change it after everyouting though.Thecamshave always looked like new and the wristpins would come out like new. I remember years ago riggin up a puller to extract wristpins out of my GS streetbike after using Castrol bike oil.
I know the 40 weight is costin me some HP but it did it's job. The light weight synthetics have me a bit worried.[img]smileys/smiley24.gif[/img]
