Amsoil 10W-40(MCF) in a 2003 Husaberg FE400. Drained the oil after 6 hours and 51 miles on the bike. The bike at sample had around 45 hours. Testing was done by Blackstone Labs 02/21/06 INSOLUBLES 0.1% WATER 0.0% FUEL 2.5% FLASHPOINT (DEG F) 325 SUS VISCOSITY @ 210 DEG F: 64.7 ALUMINUM 4 CHROMIUM 1 IRON 12 COPPER 4 LEAD 2 TIN 1 MOLYBDENUM 29 NICKEL 0 MANGANESE 0 SILVER 0 TITANIUM 0 POTASSIUM 0 BORON 32 SILICON 4 SODIUM 0 CALCIUM 2437 MAGNESIUM 182 PHOSPHORUS 1041 ZINC 1199 BARIUM 0 COMMENTS BY BLACKSTONE: This is the first sample we have seen from this type of engine, so we created a new average file for it and will start building averages with this sample. Wear levels are low and properly balanced, so we think your engine is wearing well at this point. We did find some fuel dilution, which is common in racing bikes, due to the type of operation they see. We would normally consider 2.5% fuel to be a possible issue, but since we're not familiar with this engine we'll see what the next sample brings. The TBN read 11.6, still lots of active additive left.

EDIT: The oil was drained after 6 hours and 51 miles. The bike had ~600 miles and 45 hours of use...
