What Oil???

How often do you F4 owners change oil? What oil do you use? And why?

I use Motul 7100 4T 10W 60 fully synthetic and change every 2000 miles (approx 3200km I think equivalent)

Mine gets Agip Racing 4T. Interestingly enough the manual states the following.

"AGIP Racing 4T 10W/60 has been manufactured for the F4 engine"

Every 3000 miles for the bikes. I do the cars at about 7500.

AMSOIL. Expensive, but It is for your MV Agusta exotic Italian super bike. Mine ran cooler with it, and I swear less vibration.

What we've got here, is failure to communicate.

I use AMSOIL ($16 usd per qt) as well and change the oil every 1500 miles or 3 months - whichever comes 1st. I change the oil filter every other oi change. Bike(s) run cool, no over heating, never have had an issue with the motor that has been related to the oil.

Ride fast and furious but live to ride another day!

I have started using BRAD PENN® PENN-GRADE 1®
V2 4-Stroke High Performance SAE 20W-50 Motorcycle Oil.
This is full zinc race oil and cannot be used with a catalytic converter.
Runs smooth and nice gear changes.


Someone once asked me if I was "out of my mind". To which I replied "of course I am, as its dark & scary in their".

Has anyone used semi synthetic oil and would you consider it or not? What are the advantages or disadvantages? I don't think I would personally change myself but when I first bought my bike the dealer carried out a so called service as per our sales deal only to find later that the service invoice amongst the other bike documents indicated use of a unipart filter and semi syn oil

Use AMSOIL 20w50 in the Brutale. Change it every 3,000-3,500 miles.

All fluids in every bike I own(minus the Zuke) are from Maxima. This is what I run in my F4.
