I have lost count of the number of times a customer comes in asking for fully-synthetic oil for a regular motorcycle. Manufacturers specify, for arguments sake, a 10w40 semi-synthetic oil from their recommended oil supplier, be it Honda with Castrol or Yamaha with Yamalube, etc... It'll have a specification dictated by country, pollutants and additives in oils, designed specifically for that motorcycle. So why would you make the rash decision, and more expensive option to change to fully-synthetic after 15,000 kilometers running faultlessly?
People do some strange things, Their friend on a online forum syas, “I've got this in my motorcycle,” and they haven't actually thought that this motorcycle may be a KTM, for example, and requires a certain oil. Most manufacturers recommend a 10w40 to cope with a wide parameter of working temperatures and abuse, and work with this oil consistently as a base.
