the 10 15 or 20 w means nothing. at temperature they will all act the same. its the 30 40 50 or even 60 number that maters. in the summer a 5w40 is the same as a 10w40. a 10w50 is the same as 15w50 or 20w50. the w is the winter action how it acts in cold temperatures.

Thanks, I guess I should have put no difference to appease everybody, seeing as that was the point I was eluding to with warm weather and cold flow in my reply. .

Then it comes down to how does that twin formula compare to Motul 300v

Motul because it’s toxic waste green and smells good.

I Ride: 2012 1199S ABS
oil for the Panigale

11,000miles or so on my 2012 1199s. Half/more of those on the track. Change my oil every 2 track days, about 250 miles. I use Shell Rotella T6
5-40. $20/gallon at several places. Change the filter every 2 oil changes. I will probably change the crush washer if it ever starts to leak. The bike clutch and transmission feel perfect.

Lots of good choices, this is what works for me.

Good to hear. I bought the Motul and decided to make it simple and just swap the fluid. No filter. Same crush washer. Itís just an extra change in between my paid for service intervals.

So you decided to be mix old different brand and grade dirty oil and filter with the fresh Motul? What exactly are you accomplishing? Your bike your engine.
