I will say this though....

My girlfriend has recently started using Torco Fully Synthetic and her SV650 runs great. It actually runs cooler than the previous oils she has used.

Another racer friend of mine uses it and he swears by it also.

Interesting! Might have to give that a shot.

Let me know what you think and if you notice the bike running cooler.

Im not due for an oil change anytime soon on my Ninja 250 race bike but I know as soon as its due Im going to try the Torco stuff. My Ninja 250 race bike no longer has its cooling fan so this would be a huge help.

Just in case, here's how it looks:



The company is in Rancho Cucamonga and they do a lot of products other than oils...but what they are known mostly for among insiders and educated users is the oil. I recently did an oil change on my girlfriend's truck using their full synthetic car oil...we'll see if I notice anything different. We drive a lot to Chuckwalla so oil changes because of the desert conditions warrants more frequent oil changes.

My girlfriend is actually sponsored by Torco. Here is my girlfriend's plug on Torco:

Maybe I might have her chime in if you guys have questions with her experience using it.

Man I wish I could test it before you do but the season is over here and the bike will be in winter storage before I know it! So I guess I will be waiting on your results.

Your a lucky man! haha

Probably the cheapest oil out there you can use. It also has the JASO-MA certification on there too to put yourself at ease.
I use Shell Rotella Full Synthetic 5W-40 in my race bike, in my street bike, lawnmower, snow-blower in anything that needs engine oil. I love that oil and price.

Spectro is good stuff! I've run that but mostly run Silkolene as I get quite a few oil changes in contingency!

I ran Mobil1 4T for years....Just swiched over to the Silkolene when I started getting checks...
