Shell Advance 4t 15w-50

For those that are very crazy for shell advance 4T oil.... Just giving a heads up MotoWheels.com is now selling 15w-50 for $17.50 a liter. Estimate of 15-20 bucks on shipping.. Have fun!!

For all the USA people

Here is the link: http://motowheels.com/i-20919658-she...oil-liter.html

Many Ducati dealers have the Shell oil now, we just got a program set up with Shell about 2 weeks ago to finally start importing it into the U.S. This has been a LONG time coming, everyone is very excited to finally be able to use the same oil the bikes come from the factory with.

i couldn't believe it in the beginning looking for oil for the 1199... i must have visited a dozen SHELL gas stations in the area and none had Shell oil! good to see the good stuff swapping over... I have used shell in all bikes back in Deutschland.

Nice to know, my clutch worked better with the 4T Shell over the Motol 300V 15w50, and since I have to order that on line as well as my filters, I'll start buying the shell.

So, here is a question. Is the motul 300v not worth the money? And is the shell better?

That question will lead to about a 10 page thread debating the undebatable. Bottom line, use the correct grade for your climate that also meets Ducati's minimum requirements. Any top-shelf synthetic will protect your motor and give you many years of protection. The differences among the leading manufacturers fully synthetic oil is very small. The only way to accurately & definitively verify your choice is to send in a sample for a used oil analysis(UOA) from Blackstone Labs.

How many quarts does the Pani use anyways?

And where is the best place to get an oil filter? Amazon?!?! And brake fluid? I'm about to do my fluids

It's awesome that it's finally being imported here.. Rumor is that Ducati is making the shell advance 4t a required oil for the new 1299. According to the dealership. My dealer uses bel-air but now theit having to get rid of it and get shell oil.
