I did not see any reccommendations listed on the FAQ page here: http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showthread.php?p=1726657#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!

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).

You're not looking at the right shop mate.

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:ahhh:

The oil filter is just as important as changing the oil.Replace it.

Thanks midget, if it makes you feel any better, there is exactly ONE (1) shop that stock it in Brissy :), I really want to try out the new Penrite atm, before I deviate from factory spec and go lighter weight 10w-50 to see if I can get some improvement in a couple of departments. My engine runs a little hot at the lights (102 C), and neutral is a bit illusive at times.

I'm a bit loyal to my local Repco Donsy, they've looked after me well over the years, getting stuff in that they don't stock etc. and discount almost always offered even though I'm not trade.
heya Paul the price you were quoted of $350 for 20L aint the trade price.....hell it aint even a discount:mad:

Yeah, I know now. That's a retail price, though to be fair, they called Penrite, got the price (over $400) then tell me I can have it for $350.
They are taking the piss, not looking after you :) Tho to be fair, it you want to fork out $350 for oil for you bike.. be my guest!

I can supply you Brisbane guys with Penrite oil.
20 litres for $240.00,conditions are you have to buy 20 litres minimum,you have to pay me at work by phone and you have to pick the oil up at Penrite's warehouse in Brisbane.I spend thousands of dollars with Penrite and they look after me,so I can pass that discount onto you.

You want the 10w60 full synthetic.
The 10w50 is semi synthetic.
Your going backwards there.
