Default 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.

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.

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.

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.
