Seems to be a lot of talk about this oil, thought I'd share my results: 5 track days, ~500 street miles.

Originally posted by Titan: Kawasaki did just the opposite, put reed valves on the exhaust ports to pull in filtered air to lean it out for better EPA emissions scores. Many owners take these off/disable them, especially if they put on aftermarket pipes (and how many people DON'T change the pipes...a vast minority), because, like you mentioned, lean exhausts pop on deceleration. Although stock pipes muffle the pop well, it is very noticeable with aftermarket pipes. Interesting differences in approaching the problem....
