Because rotella is not made for motorcycle transmissions, how do you know it won't cause problems. Car oils today have all types of extra crap in it that's suppose to be good for engines, NOT moto transmissions.

rotella is rated for JASO MA safe for wet clutches says so right on the bottle

I used it and my bike didnt like it at all. Temps were 5 degrees higher and tranny was super clunky. I've switch to amsoil 20w-50 and everything is butter. Just shows every bike is different.

You may want to educate yourself on oil, especially Rotella.

i have been using the basic rotella 15w40 and love it trans does shift smoother. i have a friend that drag races underground. he said that it is a good oil but i should try mobile one delvac. said it works the best for him and that he was more impressed with it then rotella

I did this same sway to the T6. Only reason was to do the synthetic oil for $30. just make sure oil has same additives required by motorcycle oils like Jerzy says. (T6 is compatible!)
