I buy Rotella at Walmart.Thanks Paper, Do you but the Rotella from an auto parts store?
My local WallyWorld has it at $11 a gallon, but Chevron Delo 400 is only $8.50, and Walmart's own brand is $9.50.. (which I've been told is Shell Rotella).At ten bux a gallon ya cant ask for much more. And I agree with you on the change it often and it wont really matter what cha put in her!!
I use Valvoline 10w 40 atv wet clutch,4 stroke oil,,,been using it for over 23,000 from new. I change it when its dirty,,,even if its only 500 miles. I get about 600 to 1000 miles out of it before its dirty. Mines an 06,,EM doo kit,,,tweety tube removed,,,some other minor mods,,but mostly stock,,,and its still running great! Gotta love the "TWO WHEELED TRACTOR" that the KLR is ! And it doesn't burn or "lose" oil at all.My bike just turned past 6500 miles and I was wondering what type of oil people were using. I have been sticking with a patroleum base so far, has anyone switched to a synthetic and if so which brand and type and how is it working for you? Breck
Yep.. SuperTech is Walmart's brand. I've used it and can't tell any difference between it and the more expensive stuff.. As I mentioned, I've been told that the Walmart stuff is Rotella. Can't verify that, though.Just picked up a gallon at my local. It was 12 bux. Is the wally world stuff called tech something, if so it was 8.50 a gallon. Breck
LOL. I'm surprised anyone on here is shelling out for synth. No offense to anyone who does, but yeah...frugal is one word for it.I'm surprised at the poll results so far... I kind of figured that the dino and synthetic would be pretty even. Course we KLR dudes are a frugal bunch and the synthetics cost quite a bit more usually. The Amsoil Motorcycle synthetic that the PO had in mine had a price tag of $14 on the one litre container... That would make an oil change at least $40 counting the filter, ouch!
