    M50 oil weight

    Forgive me, there are just too many threads to dig through even when using search function.
    What is best weight oil for these M50's? Dealer put in 10W-30, but could I use 10W-40 or 20W-50?
    I don't want to go searching for the 10-30....my AAFES carries the 10W-40.

    Thanks

    10W-40 is probably the most commonly used here. I use that weight, and I use Amsoil.

    For those who are unfamiliar with the acronym AAFES it stands for Army Airforce Exchange Services...LOL

    I miss AAFES and the shoppettes...(cry)

    LOL You could always tell who was in the Army and who was in the Air Force though....based off the haircut.

    Aw yes the good old AAFES STAR card, I am still paying on that thing and I have been out of the Air Force (Active Duty) for a year and a half, sitting pretty on the Inactive Reserve side waiting for the letter in the mail to pull me back in

    AAFES is over rated and overpriced. I prefer drivin down to the local wal-mart. Then again, maybe that's just here....

    Oh, and I'm running synthetic diesel oil, rotella 15-40. Works great and isn't as expensive as "motorcycle specific". No clutch slippage or anything...

    I went out and bought the Castrol 4T Motorcycle Oil. It isn't the Castrol RS 4T Synthetic.
    I bought the 10W-40 (only other one available waas 20W-50, which they show as best use for V-Twins). Anyone run this in theirs, or know of any problem with it? It was $5 per quart.
    They had the synthetic Mobil 1, but I have read about clutch slippage issues running this....thoughts?

    I like the mobil 1 bike oil....it's designed for wet clutches so I can't, nor have I heard of such an issue. I only change the oil twice a year...start and end of season so I don't mind the extra cost associated with the more expensive oils. I honestly find the shifting less clunky with synthetic oil in place.
    Currnently in love with my ZX9 but will never forget the 05 M50 that filled the garage.

    The dealer put in 10-30 oil. Was it motorcycle specific oil ? Or was it a regular cage oil with energy conserving additives ? If it has additives get it out of the engine. Did the dealer tell you the brand, synthetic or dino etc ?
