    CALLING: Rotella Oil users....

    what weight are you using in what climate?

    I would like further information on Rotella before switching to it. Just not sure what the right one for me would be.

    I have tried to search, but i don't want a sort threw all the arguments.

    Thank you,

    Daniel

    I'm using 6T 5w40 for the winter. No problems, the clutch feels a little different, I had been using Ymalube 20w40 iin the warmer weather.

    You may find that your top-end is a bit noisier when using the Rotella (5W-40)...it was for me. Noisy enough that I won't use it any more.

    I haven't noticed any more noise yet at least, been running it for few weeks now.

    I have used Rotella in bikes but not the TW. I do know that synthetic makes a huge difference in clutch performance however.

    I haven't switched the TW over to T6 yet, but it's running in the Versys. I'm thinking I'll switch over to it when I change the oil in a couple of weeks and see if I notice any difference.

    Is it true that if you use the right weight oil the brand does not matter ? I mean if it's a reputable brand?

    yup...page 8-1 in the specs section of the owners manual says 10w30 or 20w40 https://tw200forum.com/forum/technica...r-manuals.html ...i run mobil 1 4t full synthetic 10w40 year-round in all my bikes and have noticed a difference in shifting smoothness for the better once i switched from dino to synthetic...but really oil is oil...there are a ton of "which oil?" threads on here if you poke around a bit...i would say use whatever brand motorcycle oil is readily available in your area...i mean the TW only takes 1L anyway so it's not like you are going to save a ton of money between brands on 1 bottle
