    Synthetic Oil?

    How much of a difference can you tell with synthetic oil and what kind is the best? Royal Purple or Amsoil?

    I have heard good things about AMSOIL. I have not heard anything -good or bad about the other product.

    You may not be able to tell by the seat of your pants a difference. It will not break down like a petroleum oil, it will run cooler and last longer. Here is a test on some oils. You can choose which one is better. I hope this helps.

    +1 on Amsoil. I'm sure their is a TON of information on oil here. Motul full synthetic is also good.

    Skips, did a good write-up on this and I try to follow as close as I can...the oil capacity for the 250x and the 15f are the same. Kawi lists it as 5.3 qts.....
