yes he did but if you haven't ran gn4 i think that is synthetic or the HN4 is either way one is in a gold bottle and the other is in a black bottle red lable that's the one you want 10w30 is what i use.

The HN4 is the synthetic. You know, I still have never heard a valid reason on why you can't go from synthetic back to conventional...

I have heard that too. I'm the same way, I don't wanna find out that everyone was right.LOL I use Synthetic blend in my cars. But I change the oil in my quad about every 5 hours or after each race.

I dont buy the synthetic hype... I could see maybe in the diffs but not every 3 thousand in the engine. But thats just my opinion.

The 450s are very high revving and high strung motors and very tempermental. As hard as I ride it, I just like the assurance. The 450s recommend them about 10-15 hours.

Yep... During my races I'm bouncing off the rev limiter a lot. That almost 10,500RPMs for 2.5 hours straight.

No walmart won't carry it. There is a huge difference in tolerance between our motors. Mine is a pure race motor that MUST be changes often. The 400's and below can get away with an oil change once everyother month or longer. My rev limiter is a lot different than yours.

Some syntetics have anti friction molecules or some crap like that.
