I am a coach for a track day organization. I coach on my 08 Hypermotard on a few of the shorter tracks. I noticed that I was having trouble completing shifts throughout the weekend. I switched to this oil and the shifts were much smoother. The bike shifts fine while street riding. The rigors of the track were too much for the other oil. I feel that this oil is a great compromise between $16/qt. oil and basic entry level stuff. I will continue to use it for this boke.
