I have been using Synthetic oil since 1974....
the debate was raging back then.. and still is..
in 1983 I purchase a New Goldwing...... in 149,000 miles it had 6 oil changes...
AMZOIL every 25,000 miles ... I totaled that bike at 149,000 miles.
bike was sold and repaired.. and continued riding down the road.
oil filter was replaced every 12,500 miles ( FRAM oil Filter )
never used oil, engine was never opened up.. NO internal parts needed replacement.
2005 VTX1800 F, type II, Silver Tribal, 89,000 Miles, Purchased Feb, 2005.
MTC clutch & springs.. K&N Air Filter. Garmin 2597 GPS.
