OK, OK, top 5? I like Mobil One or Amsoil but have never used either in my Wing.

I qigongdoc and Hall

the most important thing has to do is change oil regularly, and for a specific company, the company you want, look at the site you'll have a number of answers.

Let me sum this one up quickly-instead of telling me which oil is the best, which is mostly an opinion, can anyone tell me which oil is a "bad oil"? I thought not. Point is most oils are good. Just change your oil according to the manual and use the recommended viscosity. Enjoy your ride!! Done deal!
