    Default Convential Oil

    Has anyone used Valvoline M/C conventional oil in the 998 2015 SST? 20-50w or 10-40 w?

    Default Spec's.....

    As long as the oil you want to use meets the spec's in your manual you can use it. The higher the weight the better for warm weather areas. I use the blended as that way if in a bind I can use the conventional or synthetic to get me where I'm going. I do have the RS 998 which uses oil and topping off is common....

    Short answer, yes.
    But as with any ? it helps to understand the background and motivation for it.
    Are you topping off between changes? Are you looking for an oil to use?
    Valvoline conventional is just that... a good conventional oil. Nothing special or magical about it. It will do it's job, with out fancy or flair.
    If you are changing oil, there are better choices from Valvoline that will stand up to heat, not disappear like the 5wXX's in the 998, and run a full oil change cycle without shearing into a 20 weight.
