    what would be the pro's/con's of changing from synthetic back to non-synthetic?
    my friend has a 2003 honda vtx 1800 v-twin and the shop he took it to changed it and said it wouldn't hurt it . isn't that a bad thing to do? <_< sounds like a shitty shop to me. <_<

    You know this is a good question I've always heard its ok to switch from normal oil to full synth but not ok to switch back.... I have no idea why that is and I've yet to see anything to back that other then well Im told....

    Good question Im hoping someone knows a thing or two about oil in here
