    I always thought polisport was oem or at least it was for a while. Take your stock number plate or headlight off and see what it says.

    The lettered up kit on my 300 is a full Polisport kit. It was no different than the OEM stuff.

    OK I went ahead with the polisport.
    I couldn't find either brand name on the back of my oem number plate, but for that price difference, with multiple people saying the polisport is fine, polisport it is.

    Riding in cold weather polisport will shatter, I ride lots of rocks and crash lots so that matters to me. I use Acerbis now for that reason but besides the cold weather shattering polisport fits fine and works fine.

    Interesting. How cold are we talking? I've hit stuff with the Polisport plastics in 40 degree weather without an issue.

    Opti2, @North ride likes it too. Power valves stay clean Evans if you're lugging up crap at a plonk

    I know it's been discussed before, but I forget what was said. I have some Rotella T4 15-40 and want to know if it's something I can use in the 300.
    I usually get Spectro Golden Gear, but it's $9 a qt and 35 minute drive.
