    Putting in Rotella T6 tomorrow, heard great things about it...

    I ride a '97 DR650 and researched the best oils and determined this is it! Anyone else use it?

    I do, but not for my tw. I switched from conventional oil to this and it much worsened a base gasket seep. I went back to conventional, and it slowed some. I have the gasket and it's on my winter to do list. Until then I wipe, check and add a little more often. I use the t6 in all my others.

    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!
