    I have an 04 107cu Ridgeback and would like to baby it as far as the best fluids.
    Anyone run synthetic oils in your choppers?
    I know its more expensive but I know in my cars it's been worth it.

    Mobil 1 full synthetic in my motors. Lots of times I find it on sale and buy a case or two, so it's not too badly priced!

    Been running it in three bikes and two Beemers -- some for as long as 10 years. Had to send the X-wedge in for warranty work last year. The Tech asked me what I was running because the motor looked new and it had 18,000 on it.
