Which Engine Oil to use for 910 B4 ?

I did not see any reccommendations listed on the FAQ page here: http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showth...57#post1726657
so just curious what oil should i put in my 910 B4 ?
I will not replace the oil filter this time, just replacing the oil.
Will a semi-synthetic be a better choice than full-synthetic or just non-synthetic will do ?
My B4 currently has about 14, 000 miles on it.
Thanks in advance!

Why change oil and not the filter, might as well leave it then, and defo not non-Synthetic, have you looked on your manual at all ?

Oh good...another oil thread.

I use ENI (AGIP) 10-60 full synthetic as called for in my owner and service manuals.

Next....

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

You guys are so lucky in the US, I tried to buy 4 litres of our own Penrite 10w-60 from a reputable auto shop here in Aus (Repco) and they say I have to buy 20 litres at a time (and even with discount - it's $350 for 20 litres).

Who moved my cheese?

You're not looking at the right shop mate.

Sounds good! Going to check if that's available at my local shop.

Looks like the best oil is Bardahl XT 4 http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showpo...8&postcount=49 but I cannot find it on any wesbites in the US:http://www.bardahl.com/en/products/oil-additives

Paul if you get on the penrite website there's an easy search function that will tell you what stores stock specific products.
When I was looking for a test 4L bottle there were only 2 shops in all Sydney that had it

Bardahl ? Thought they made additives, not oils.....Whatever you get, make sure it is motorcycle specific.

I buy the ENI by the case direct from the US distributor. I'll eventually use it all.
