    Mad as hell......seriously where do you buy your oil and oil filter?

    I checked on line, both autozone and walmart suppose to have the oil but when I got there they didn't have any. As for oil filter, all I found was Fram which most people recommend not to use it. Please help.

    If there is a purolator gold filter that fits your bike I like them. Advance auto jsuay carries those and the motorcycle specific Mobil.

    I buy my oil and filter during normal business hours during the week. When motorcycle specific stores are open.

    k&n filters from d2moto when they have their 40% off sale
    used yamalube from the dealer now got a case of valvoline for $2 a quart to use up. then i'll probably be going to rotella from wally world. the 2.5 gallon for $30 is a pretty smoking deal.

    I ride an 09 zx6r. I just moved to Quincy this past week. Checked out Autozone, Advance auto, and Walmart. Couldn't find 10w-40, any filter other than Fram, and spark plugs NGK CR9E. I guess maybe the these stores here in Quincy don't carry them for motorcycle. Wasted an entire day driving around.

    Been checking online tonight and it looks like Autozone do have what I am looking for. I will have to go to Stoughton to pick up. Thanks guys!

    Just as an FYI, but there's nothing magical about 10W-40, unless it's what you happen to prefer. I've used that, 20W-40, 15W-50, and everything in between.

    I know the advance auto on Southern Artery has moto-specific oil and purolator filters. The Walmart also has Rotella oil.

    On another topic, are people recommending Rotella T6 (blue bottle) or is the regular Rotella (white bottle) just as good? (And why?)

    There's a real lack of quality motorcycle shops/dealers around Quincy, sadly. There's a couple of shops catering to the Harley crowd, and not much else.

    I didn't even know there was motorcycle specific oil. Oh well, guess I'll look into that next season.

    i use the mobil delvac or rotella (white bottle) both for diesel engines as specified in this research, it works great!

    i also use the mazda miata oil filter, also specified in the research.

    It's due to most motorcycles sharing the oil between the engine and trany so you need something that will work with clutch plates (if you have a wet clutch, which you do on your bike).

    I get my oil from my sponsor AMSOIL. Best oil on the market. Dave is up at the track every race weekend with oil and oil filters, so come on up. We are in North garage 11. You can also click on the link in my signature to get to the website or pm me and I can get you squared away.

    Re: Mad as hell......seriously where do you buy your oil and oil filter?

    This is what I got from Autozone
    NGK CR9E plugs
    Valvoline 10w-40 motorcycle oil (cheapest - too much $$$ for the synthetic)
    Bosch 3300

    Replaced the oil in my bike for the first time ever. No problem removing the filter at all. I have a small oil filter wrench cap fits perfectly. Done changing oil quicker than changing in my car.

    I'm with many others here. Get the filters from any Auto store (I usually get Purolator filters from Advanced Auto) and I get my Rotella by the gallon at Wally-World (walmart) usually two at a time so I don't have to go back too often.

    If you look around, there is usually a rebate at Advanced for these filters. Last time I ended up buying four filters because they were a dollar a piece after rebate. Can't beat that!
