I had good luck with it in my CBR but tired of paying way too much and tracking it down. I use Mobil 1now,quieter and cooler on the FZ.

Actually is my first time intent to using synthetic oil on my bikes! ,the fz has now 5900 miles using regular yamalube 10w40 and my Honda 919 11000 miles with Honda regular oil gn4.
I will follow your advice on Mobil 1 T4 for my 919 and Motul 300 for the fz, I will let you know my results.
I really appreciate you answer,thanks!

I run Amsoil in all bikes I have ever owned never had an issue little pricey but cant say anything bad....oil is really personal preference as long as it meets the OEM specs its not much different......NOW if you want a REAL race oil that is used in 150k -250k engines and you can spare the $$$ look at DRIVEN race oil....its developed and owned by Joe Gibbs of nascar among MX racing.....if Hendrick motorsports runs this in their engines....well yeah its good enough for anything. But 20$ a quart is expensive.

Just some food for thought

Motul 300V is great stuff, but bear in mind it is a pure racing oil, and thus lacks the detergent package that street-based oils have. Racing oils are intended to be changed far more frequently than oils designed for street duty. I believe Motul 7100 4T is considered their top-of-the-line synthetic street oil.

I was always told to run standard MFR oil for initial breakin, then up to at least 3000 miles (5000 km). Then swap to synthetic, run 600 miles (1000 km), and do a synthetic break in oil change. After that do regular oil changes with the synthetic. ???

+1 for T6. I run it in my bikes, small engines, pretty much everything except my truck which calls for water disguised as oil.

That would be the one, not going to go into a long rant on oils because the debate will never end but is it a top notch oil for bike use. No energy conservation BS so wet clutch problems are not a worry, I know many people who had it Blackstone tested after torturing it on the racetrack and it holds up very well.
Rotella (it's branded Rimula in Oceana)doesn't seem to be easily located here.Certainly the synthetic types aren't.So I use Chevron Delvac 15w40 in it's place.
The temperature here ranges between 10 C and 30 C so the advantages that synthetics offer for cold viscosity stability are unecessary and the 09 runs at 73 C so the oxidation resistance of synthetics is not needed either.
May as well use dino HDEO

You right Sir!! Better 7100 vs 300v for street duty, I will replace replace the 300v sooner. Here is a link that confirm what you say.thanks.

Been running this in my bikes for years with NO issues. Will switch to it on next change on the 09. Went with the Yamalube for the first 3 changes.

It's what I run in all my engines.

2000 Dodge Dakota 5.9 magnum engine, 150k, no leaks, no engine repairs. (technically this is my brothers truck since two weeks ago)
2005 Honda Accord 2.4 liter Vtec PZEV, 27k no leaks, no engine repairs
2014 FZ09 8k. First oil change @ 600 miles I switched to shell rotella T-6 synthetic.
2014 NV200 800 miles, I'm changing the oil tomorrow or monday, will be running... yep you guessed it, T-6 synthetic.

I also ran it in my honda CB750s, my Honda CX500, my KLR 650, my XS650, my Bandit 1200s, etc, etc, etc.
other then a transmission problem in my CX, (due to power shifting I'm guessing) at 150k, I've had no engine or transmission or clutch problems for years and years. It's always 'other' things that fail.

The 300V is a track weapon oil; its for accurate up/downshifts

downsides after using 2 times...

It sucks in water like crazy (the ester used likes water ) if you use it over a period of 4 months.

makes the bike vibrate like crazy too after 5 miles.

I'm switching to amsoil today I know this is a old thread but I still have to add if anyone that has done the changed to synthetic have any regrets.

I'm at 4900 miles now and would hope the bike is fully broken in now on regular oil .
