Hey guys, so while my bike is at the dealer, i was guessing i should just change the oil and get it serviced, while it gets repaired. My friends have jap bikes and are telling me to put royal purple in it. I was like hmm let ask the fellas at the forum instead. What do you guys think is the best oil and filter for a 2014 F3 800 with only about 2800 miles on it. Also I'm in the US if that means anything lol.

If it s at the dealer they'll probably use eni/ agip. There's a few threads about this just do a quick search. There are some good alternative ones that are the same viscosity as recommended in your manual, which varies by region.

Royal Purple is not a good choice.
AMSOil
Mobile One
ENI

Whatever you choose, use a quality full synthetic.

Personally, I would not use Royal Purple in anything...not even my lawn mower.

I put a lot of effort into post #77 on that thread. It varies depending what weights you want to run what good oils are available. IMO There is something a bit suspect about ENI oils specifications and I would go with an alternative on my bike.

You certainly did and I hope people read it and take note.:)
