    The previous owner of my 1150 used only synthetic and changed the oil every 3,000 miles. Now that it's mine, it gets Rotella 15w-40 from WalMart, with oil changes at 6,000 miles like the rest of my...

    Weren't you asking how long Stabil (the product itself) lasts before it goes bad? I'd like to know the same thing. I have been using the same bottle for 3 years, but I...

    It seems to me this question was asked some time ago on the R1150.net forum. IIRC, the older R1100R needed the steering damper and the newer R1150R did not.

    What bike are we talking about?

    FWIW, I've had 4 oilheads with ABS and 1 without. I like the non-ABS brakes better.

    Hi, Mr. New Guy...

    ...starting an "oil thread" could be hazardous to your health. You should do a search. Or, better yet check your owner's manual. You will get widely differing and almost religious positions on oil.
