I roll with Rotella T6. I have owned several 500+ HP cars with my last being a Subaru STI with 580WHP and 540TQ. Yes, I built it myself in my garage. There has been extensive oil analysis on Rotella compared to the High End oils like Amsoil and Motul. Countless times Rotella has shined at the same or above level. Mobil 1 was at the very bottom of the list as it dropped in protection rather quickly so if anything stay away from Mobil 1. Engine is an Engine and all engines have metal to metal sheering. So better the base stock with high ZDDP rating the better protection will be for sheering. Also Rotella meets all the standards for Motorcycles and your clutch wont slip with this oil as I just put 400 miles on it with some hot laps.
Look up bobstheoilguy and look for all the Rotella posts, there has been one where they put it up against 6 high end oils. Rotella was dead even with Motul and Amsoil but at fraction of the cost. Everyone is switching to it because it's the same protection if not more and half the costs or more. At $19 it's hard to beat an oil that does the same job as $50 oils.
But everyone has their opinions and usage of oils has been discussed to death on countless forums of which is better. The long fact of it all is that you will more than likely change your oil before it breaks down around 3K. If you are a true die hard and will go out to the service intervals that the manual says, I bid you good luck in keeping your bike for a long time. You will build up sludge as it breaks down and your motor will wear faster. So use what you like best as they all have decades in development and wont kill your engine with the type of riding most do which is street and every once in a while a few red line pulls. I usually go what has been proven countless times and if Rotella is that cheap and offers excellent protection, than I am all for it. Cheap and great quality and wont break my bank.
And NO I am not PAID by any company to post in forums to rep brands. Stupidest **** I heard in my life.
