You can get bacteria/fungal growth in some types of oils but I don't think this is the case with the synthetic stuff.

sKy27R1:

What kind of oil is it? I wouldn't be using this old oil if it did not cost $10 or > a quart. This would be like giving a newborn baby Dr Pepper :rock . What I mean is that since you have a brand new R1 (beautiful machine) I would not settle for anything less than the best. How many miles do you have on her?

I recommend using regular oil unless you have > 1000 miles, then I would recommend using Synthetic or Synthetic blend. No doubt.

Ride on.
