I used to use Motul 7100, now I use Rotella T6 full synthetic 15-40 which has the Jaso rating and is safe for a wet clutch. I can't tell the difference....except when I pay for it. Rotella is half the price.
I have always used Castrol regular and synthetic on my cars and now with the motorcycles I want to try it also.

Too many oil threads. Use the fkn search tool
I did, but did not find any results about my specific question.
Can you at least post he link in stead of being an ashooleee?
I come here for help and to help others I don't appreciate your sheet.

Castrol Actevo 4T 10W-40 Part Synthetic Motorcycle Oil for $23 per gallon on Walmart.
Wow the Castrol 06112 / 159DA7 Power 1 Racing 4T Motorcycle Oil - 10W40 - 1qt. is $23.24 per quarter on Walmart.
Big difference on price.

Amazon has the Castrol 06112 / 159DA7 Power 1 Racing 4T Motorcycle Oil - 10W40 $53 per gallon free shipping. Seems like a good deal to me.

There is no "best". All opinions are subjective. Any oil that meets the manufactures minimum specifications will work. Some of us prefer Rotella T6 for the price.

But Rotella T6 is not designed for motorcycles, does it?
How can a high performance motorcycle run fine with an oil designed for diesel trucks?

I use extra virgin coconut oil. My engine runs a little rough, but my my emissions have a great fragrance.
