I've used T6 in all my bikes for the last 10 years or so, no idea how many miles. No oil related issues.
I'm sure it will too. However Rotella T puts up just as good if not better wear numbers on used oil analysis than T6, I believe is (a lot) cheaper and if the engine is less noisy I'd prefer that as well.I'm sure it'll last just fine since most change it before 4k.
According to Suzuki for most GSX-Rs, dependent on temperature, that could be anywhere from 10W30 to 20W50 (including 15W40).
5W40 is not recommended by Suzuki.
Maybe it was just my bike in particular, but my WC 750 shifted like shit with the 15W-40. The 5W-40 T6 made shift seamlessly.I'm sure it will too. However Rotella T puts up just as good if not better wear numbers on used oil analysis than T6, I believe is (a lot) cheaper and if the engine is less noisy I'd prefer that as well.
My mantra is, if all else is equal, run the thicker oil.
Never had a chance to use Rotella as Shell markets their oils here under the Rimula name and I am not sure it they are identical products to the US Rotella ones.
I have been using 15w40 rotella in my '89 for 60,000+ miles!!!! Yes ,60,000! When i did tear it down at 60k, I could still see crosshatch marks on the cylinder walls! There was no abnormal signs from using this oil! This oil has extra additives and detergents to help your engine. I'll never be a sheep and believe the hype that the bike oil manufacturers want to make you believe, so that YOU SPEND money to buy their overpriced oil.Is there anybody that was using this oil for longer period of time and how many miles? Or anybody that you know.
What is viscosity compared to full synthetic motorcycle oils, like mobil 1 or motul or amsoil?
Just the usual stuff Ironhead.The site isn't opening for me. What does it say about diesel oils?
I was on my phone so that could have been the problem. Got it to open on my desktop.Just the usual stuff Ironhead.
Interesting you can't open the site. If it's a geographic domain thing, I use Tor Park for that and set the domain for the country that it will allow to see it.
Some of of the guys were trying to find an equivalent for Rotella in Australia. For some reason Shell are very secretive if Rotella is available here but rebadged under the Rimula name.
The pictures were from a guy in newport beach, ca and a TL1000 using "15W-40 dino style (Rotella), this is after 500-ish passes at the strip, 100K km..."
"ill ive run is rotella, sam can tell you what my gears looked like after 65K miles using this great (and inexpensive) oil."
