Default Hayabusa Oil Bargain!

Everybody loves oil threads, they just won't admit it. Sort of like that other thing nobody admits to. Anyway, I found this great bargain on the Suzuki website. It's listed for use in a Hayabusa! I'm going to buy a case before the price goes up:

Suzuki Oil & Chemicals 2-Cycle Performance Motorcycle Engine Oil CCI,
Long regarded as one of the best 2-Cycle oils in the motorcycle industry, CCI continues to lead the way. Customblended exclusively for Suzuki and formulated to strict factory specifications. CCI high performance synthetic blend meets the critical demands of all Suzuki high RPM 2-cycle engines.

1 quart bottle
990A0-01CCI
$58.14

Great deal!

I just got the oil changed on my Benz. 9 Quarts! of synthetic oil ain't exactly cheap these days.

$185 oil and filter change. Not at the M-B dealer of course.

I used to own a Benz. $100 is added to the price of everything as soon as they see you drive up.

Well I guess he wanted to make a little dough putting the thing on the lift. I can't exactly crawl under a car that's 2 inches off the ground.

The M-B dealer would have relieved me of probably $400 for the same service but they throw in a fancy lobby and a car wash.

I put Royal Purple Max-Cycle in my bikes and that stuff is roughly $10 per quart .. somewhat expensive, but at 4.5 quarts per bike that still only adds up to $45 .. add $12 for the oil filter and that comes out to $57. Equivalent to one quart of Hayabusa oil

Well if it works in the two cycle Hayabusa I'm sure it will work fine in your two cycle V-Strom Ken. Too bad it's synthetic based instead of bean oil..........

I love the smell of bean oil in the morning....smells like ..........Moto-Cross!

Why would 2-cycle oil be listed for a Hayabusa? Doesn't make much sense at any price.

Yeah, and $58/quart? WTF?

I've been using Castrol 2 stroke oil I get at Wally World for $3/quart.

I handle the bean smell in the morning personally.

Why they list 2 stroke oil at any price as an accessory for a Busa is beyond me, but go look, it's right there on the Suzook website. It's been a while since I bought 2 stroke oil, but if that's the going price I may be ditching the RD350 for something more affordable. Like a Mercedes Benz.
