Oh boy we have re-opened the which is better "Ford or Chevy" "Champion or Autolite""Bud or PRB" argument. I don't mean to be a smart ass but have you ever known any people that have worn out a motorcycle by using the wrong oil? I maintain that there are pros and cons to all oils, but much of it is overkill. Many if not most will disagree with me but that is OK, I am in fact a dinosaur.
This subject goes round and round.I know nothing but I've read everything!Ask yourself when the Bullet engine was designed - I'm talking of my Iron Barrel jobbie here.Now think how things have improved over the last 50 years with oils and petrols. Todays specifications are far above anything that was thought of back in the day.As long as it's automotive oil I would use it. Fully synthetic would be like cooking with champagne.Use hallf price oil, change twice as often if you wish.I'm now standing aside to wait for someone to tell us about the zinc content...
Ford, Autolite & PBR are best.

The oil they recommend now or the oil that they recommended in the 1940's when the engine was designed?
I don't have an owners manual, and if I did it would be written in "Indian".
