Yup I run it in my race bikes, street bikes and my diesel truck. If my wife would run on this stuff, I could save a lot of money.Yes... It's good stuff.. Don't be fooled.. They're plenty write up's about this oil vs. others and you'll be amazed how well this stuff is rated... Been using it for years in all my bikes.. My 05 GSXR 1000 has over 36,000 screaming miles on her and still running as new.. Not that my one experience tells you everything, but I been running this oil in dirt bikes as well as road bikes and all these years never had any oil burning or oil related failures or issues.. Come to think of it no failures from Yamaha's, KTM's Suzuki's, Ducati's or Honda's..
If I recall. The Rottela Oils are the most re-badged oils on the market..
I'm in agreeance, where is the T6 graph? I'd love the data to prove the point.From my perspective, having the viscosity fall into failure at merely 3,000 miles is unacceptable. Did it fall below the threshold at 1,000 miles?
There are oil options that hold their viscosity well.
Oil purchase based on comments that the use was "good" or "fine" is merely unsubstantiated evidence that their engine didn't fail. I prefer ASTM testing. Failure isn't the standard I use. Even failure evidenced by high metal content shown in used oil testing.
The MINIMUM viscosity standard shown in the Owners Manual is 14.2 for operating temperature. The range is 14.2 to 19.9. Keeping the viscosity between these two numbers keeps the lubrication right where the Ducati engineers designed the engine to have.
Buy whatever you want. I will stick with lubricants that meet the designed specifications AND perform well in the ASTM tests.
^^^Ditto. Also, very pretty graphs, but what's your source? I've wondered if it's the same MCN article referenced in the thread below.I'm in agreeance, where is the T6 graph? I'd love the data to prove the point.
