At twice the price, I'm sure it's twice as good as Amsoil 10W40 isn't it??? Double check, but I believe the recommended weight oil for your bike is a 40 weight.

'04 800SS...Strati Pipes, 42t sproket, DiD chain, Evoluzione fender eliminator, ABM Rotors, Carbon Lorane pads, Cogent-Dynamics Forks & Ohlins Shock.

'05 749s...Termi 54mm full system, 41t sproket, DiD chain, Evoluzione fender eliminator, PCIII/custom map, Pazzo Levers, Puig DB Windscreen, Penske Shock, CRS Forks, CF everything.

My guess is we wont be getting an answer back. That type of post for his 4th post says one of two things...troll or spam.

I believe the weight 10W40 / 15W50 etc has more to do with the environment in which you ride... actually the temp. I live on the Greek island of Rhodes where we never see really low mercury, but in August it can hit mid to high 40's celcius. so 15W50 is my choice.
