Just a quick question, does synthetic oil last as long as regular or semi? I put Kawi Chem 10w40 in my zx6rr about 1000 miles ago and its been running rougher at idle but once it warms up it runs like a champ.

synthetic oil lasts longer then semi or regular oil. You can go without changing the oil longer then you can regular oil.
hmmmm. 10w40 should not give you any trouble. I dont know why it is running rough at idle though. Could be a bunch of things. Not likely is it the oil though. Especially not not in the middle of the summer!

my bikes runs rough at idle too, but when it's properly warmed up it's fine...i dont think this is a big deal since I never had carbed bike that idled perfect when first fired up...
