    Oil and filter deals

    Anyone get deals on oil and filters? I am getting ready to service mine for the winter. I need 8 qts of synthetic oil and 2 k&n filters for 04-05 zx10r. Just seeing if i could get a deal before I go and pay full retail. Plus I would rather buy from a junkie!

    K&N oil filters ZX10R $10.50 a piece. Let me know. What kind of oil are you looking for?

    I use rotella synthetic and Puroilator filters from wal mart.

    Most modern motorcycles use the filter I call type [5], so this is the filter where I give you the most options. Personally, I always use Purolator Pure One PL14610s, which, along with the Mobil-1 M1-110 is clearly the best oil filter available. A small step down are the Bosch and SuperTech filters. These filters all have advanced filter media which is clearly superior to anything else on the market. The SuperTech filters, at $2 each, are a real steal. The AMSOil filters also have the advanced media, but they only have a very few square inches of it. Because of my fear that these can become clogged up too easily, I cannot recommend them. The remaining filters all have "normal" media, and have significantly poorer performance in capturing particles. I recommend you avoid Fram and Pennzoil filters.

    Here is a conversion chart if you choose to do this.

    The commercial grade oils are clearly superior to the mass market oils. For the best protection in your bike or car, use Shell Rotella Synthetic, available at Wal-Mart in blue containers for $13 / gallon. For the best petroleum oil you can buy, get Shell Rotella T, Mobil Delvac 1300, or Chevron Delo 400, about $7 / gallon at any auto parts store. On the back of most oil cans is a circular stamp with the certification. Avoid oils that say "energy conserving" in the bottom half of the donut. These oils contain friction modifier additives that could cause clutch slipping over time. All XXw-20 and XXw-30 oils are energy conserving, and should not be used in your motorcycle. 10w-40 oils should not be used in a motorcycle that runs the engine oil through the transmission. Don't buy any oil additives like STP or Slick-50

    So what weight oil do you use of the shell Rotella T synthetic?

    wont hurt the ZX-10? I have never used it before. I have heard many good things about it though. I have always used factory rec. of 10w-40. I will give it a shot though.
