I tried Rotella but my bike didnít shift as well with it. Switched back to Motul and noticed an improvement. I think if I feel the difference like that Iíll stick with the Motul. Iím not that observant when it comes to oil.

Never liked the T6 being 5w but sure like the price. I'm curious to see if the ST shifts better with the new 15w. What mileage intervals on changes do you do? I do 3K intervals.

Wally World has it now and appears they pulled the 5w40, maybe.

I do yearly oil changes since I ride multiple bikes that change in any given year. When one breaks I transfer insurance and plates to another one. This year it will be the S4RS and Busa. The thing with the oil is, Iím usually not that picky at all, I will buy whatever good oil is cheaper. Itís only that I noticed the shifting difference that I have a preference for Motul. Thatís what I use in the Ducatis and Busa . I use HD synthetic in the DynaGlide, and whatever is around in everything else. Once a year, unless I donít.
