I just did an oil change with MOTUL 300V Factory Synthetic Oil (15w50) and now it seems that there is more vibration in the bike than before, is it just me or does/has anyone else experienced this?

This stuff is almost like water the way it fills the sight glass so fast when you stand the bike up to check the oil level. Whatever brand the dealer used at my 600 mile service had a much thicker consistency (don’t know if that makes a difference or not). But the manual says 15w50 synthetic so that is what I used.

On a side not the bike shifts much smoother now, so there is a plus!

It must be something else, Motul is good stuff, check your motor mounts.
The oil will only reach 50w at riding temp, when cold its thinner, (15w) it should flow quickly to circulate faster upon start-up. Aloha Alex

I will check the mounts, but the vibration got noticeable once the bike had been used for a while and heated/warmed up, that is why I questioned the oil.
