Re: Shell Rotella is bad for motorcycles

On the one hand, I like and use Rotella. On the other hand, their "forum" is somewhat suspect, the moderator must approve all posts, good luck having any tough questions get posted.

I Just picked up some T6. Not sure if the T5 is full synthetic, but the T6 is - could be the reason for the price difference.

1 gallon of non synthetic Repsol 4T is $24.99

1 gallon of full synthetic Rotella T6 is $24.99

1 gallon of full synthetic Repsol 4T is $ lol

I haven't done my oil change yet, going from Repsol non syn to Rotella T6 - prolly will this weekend...this'll be my first time using Rotella

Re: Shell Rotella is bad for motorcycles

lean how is the Rotella working out over the Repsol.

Ive been using the Repsol 4t semi synthetic since day one but they just bumped the quart price from $5.99 up to $11.99 because the "easy pour bottle design"

I would rather pay the $5.99 and use the multiple funnels i have in my garage.
