Doing the first oil change on my new (used) 1098. Currently at 3,000 miles.

Anyone have any opinion on the Castrol RS R4 4T oil? I know the factory suggests 10W-40, but I just picked up some 10W-50. Haven't seen many people in the Ducati world talk about this particular oil.

Thanks.

I run the 20w50 version..not a bad oil...probably one of the better ones you can get off the shelf...I am switching to Amsoil however...

I don't believe the factory suggests 10w40 as the "preferred" viscosity, but it is acceptable.
You should be fine.

Amazon.com has the best deal on it.
