If your winter days consist of 60 70 degrees F, then 15-50 will do.

I managed to get 7100 Motul 5W40 for a good price

Is anyone using this?

Shell Rotella T6, 5-40, full synthetic, makes my F350 diesel with finicky injectors purr like a kitten. Does not have any friction modifiers so it is OK with wet clutch. Good for temps over 300.

About $20 a gallon at Walmart, less when they have a rebate.

I have yet to see a long term study that any particular oil that meets manufacturer's standards is going to make these motors last 50K vs 75K. But I am willing to look at data if you have any.
Thanks from Phl and Trackjunkie01

Rotella T6 has between 50-100 ppm of moly, a friction modifier. It is not recommended for use with a wet clutch. The dino rotella 15-40 triple-T is absent of friction modifiers.

Rotella T6 and Motul 300V

Don't want to argue, and yes you are right there some moly in T6 (not much compared to some oils) but not the other categories of friction modifiers that seem to be problem with wet clutches. Haven't heard of anyone having a clutch problem on a Panigale with this oil. I don't.

I would suggest that a little moly is probably good for the valve train sliding parts.



lots of info out there....and lots of discussion

Wow Tinus, 12000km.....in like 2 years....that's fantastic.
I'm doing my oil as it's about a year since the service but it's only done a 1000km in the last 12 months
I see it was delivered with 5W40 so I decided to stay with this.

Have you had any issues with your bike? I see our warranty expires in 2 weeks

found this info a couple of years ago when deciding what oil I would, specifically addressing Rotella T6 in vehicles with wet clutches, the JASO-MA standard.

Motul 300V 4T Factory Line 10W40 motorcycle oil, virgin oil, sent in by a guy with a Suzuki just to see what was in it.
