Hey guys, I know that there have been many threads started on oil and they can get a bit off tract. I have been riding bikes for 30 years and have spent most of those years riding sport bikes on and off the track. I have toured the 11 western on those bikes many times but now that I'm not draggin my knee any more I have found the wing from my past my new ride. I have read a lot of info on this but would like to hear from you guys that have worn out the 1200 as to the best oil to run. Thanks for your time. earthpig......
