Engine Oil

Hi Everyone

I’m sure this will have been covered a million times somewhere in here already but….

What preference of engine oil do people have when maintaining their own bike?

Here we go again, can of worms time..!!  :001:

There's probably over 50 oil manufacturers and probably well over 1000 opinions on what to use. If unsure, just use the recommended BMW Advantec oil....which is actually just rebranded Shell Advance 5W40 Fully synthetic.
