Royal Purple?

Postby tuscani451 » Wed Feb 29, 2012 10:26 pm

I just picked up some Royal Purple 20/50, I have been using Mobile 1 race oil. Any thoughts from the peanut gallery if there is any benefit from one over the other?

Been around a long time. Seemed like snake oil when it was first brought to market but I do believe it is good stuff. Not sure if it's still way overpriced because I never even look at it when im in a store.

Shell is good stuff, know lots of people that swear by it, especially airplanes and diesels.

I've used Castrol GTX 20-50 for as long as I can remember.

It is still way over-priced, I had a gift cert to a HD dealership (family gets confused as to what kinda bikes I ride) and the oil was thing I could find I could use lol

I just switched to Rotella too. 12 bucks a gal vs 7 bucks(discounted) a quart.
