I used the xxW40 motorex once. swapped it after about 2 weeks. While riding in slow traffic the engine got noticeably more noiser like oild thining to much.
swapped back to Motul (even at same grade, but use 15W50 now) and never repeated the same level of noise as with Motorex.
But I live in the tropics so always very hot (30degC+ all year round)


I've still been meaning to try Total racing 15W50 and see what thats like as I use Total in my 4 wheel racing car (with a mix of Castrol/Redline gear oils)

Thanks for the comment!
I use motorex in my KTM because the dealer has brain washed us it's do or die!

Myself a motul supporter I will change that too when the KTM is out of warranty

In the old days fuk oil was oil chsngevit every 5000 and forget about it!

I think there's much marketing in today's world that scares us consumers

Same, I am using 10w50 power 4T from motorex on my KTM, however this one is completely different formula. Wonder if someone tried it.

Im only young, but didnt the old 60's/70's Ducati required "special" oil to be used. If you didnt use it the engine would pretty much wear out within a few 1000kms....

...or this just another Ducati urban legend?

That and engines are far more advanced an running on a far more aggressive tune/setup from factory more than ever. Sky high compressions etc

I do the oil & filter every 6,000klm Shell Advanced as thats what sits good with me I just feel these extra long intervals like 12,000klm before an oil/filter change are just too long.
Maybe it seems a bit stupid to some here and I am sure Ducati destroyed a plethora of engines coming up with those service intervals, thats fine for them they have the ball.
Me I like to ensure that my Duc's engines run well & will outlast me.......

Its the mileage or 12 months, whichever comes first. Its printed in the back of the owner's manuals.

I know I've read the manuals and thats fine for the intervals in there this is a personal thing, I bet the trackers here do not do 12,000klm's on their engine oil. Cheers

I change my oil every Race weekend, Motul 300V only.. Any top synthetic oil is great for street riding...
Thanks from Cinders
