Motul 15w50 with HiFlo oil filter. I change my oil every 3000 miles.:wavetowel2:
I've fitted hundreds and hundreds of Hi-Flo filters to both my own, and customer's bikes over the years, and never ever had one single problem.Hey brother, I would stay away from HiFlo filters on a BMW bike.
They sell Fosters in what looks like an oil can size from the 60’s here in Big D or at least they did a few months ago. I’m still getting over that hangover. Cheersshudders
Why does Fosters even exist? They must make their money selling it overseas...
Honestly, I haven't known anyone who drinks it - even after nearly 20 years in the Army drinking in a lot of strange places with a lot of strange people.

As for the oil debate, I’m running a full synthetic Mobil 1 5/30 in the winter and 10/50 in the summer. No problems and I’ve used that in every moto I’ve owned since Mobile 1 appeared as one of the original synthetics in 1974. ( 6 bikes, I think) I have only praise for the product. That included a 1961 Austin Healey Mk5, a 1964 XKE Jag and a 1971 Triumph GT6 all ran on Mobile 1. The only thing I wouldn’t recommend is an engine that’s leaking oil because that can get expensive. Like my old HD.
I ride in Texas heat all summer and our winters in Dallas are usually pretty mild. In the winter I usePicked up my 4 (Thought it gonna be 5) litre 15/50 oil today, nothing on the container to designate it Full Synth. Shop said it came up on their comp. screen as FS.
After googling I think there isn’t a 15/50 Full Synth. and will have to go to 10/40 for FS.
Waiting for shop to come back with their findings.
