A name I never hear outside of GM is ACDelco. Anyone know anything about ACDelco filters? I work at a GM dealership and ACDelco filters are fairly well priced and it would be nice to have my oil filter delivered to my desk. I'm thinking about buying one and cutting it open. Not a concrete test, but a good starting point.

Ride it like your sponsored.

They make bike oil for a reason. There are many examples of clutches slipping with car oil. It's not made for high rpm's. It doesn't have the additive packages bike oils have.

And I'm not sadly mistaken about the weight. 10w is 10w. HP4 10w is not any heavier than any other 10w oil. If you think that's the case it's all in your head. 10w-40 feels the same as 10w-50 because it doesn't become 40w or 50w until it gets heated.

"As to the question of whether you really need motorcycle oil, it's clear that the contents of the additive packages for car and motorcycle oils is predicated by different concerns. In the case of automobiles the latest lubricants are primarily designed to reduce internal friction and save fuel; whereas motorcycle oils are geared more toward handling high rpm loads while also operating in transmissions and wet clutches."

"With the API, SH and the new SJ standard, automotive oils have begun to cause problems in motorcycle engines. Oils with friction modifiers cause slippage of clutches, starter clutches and back-torque limiters. In addition, transmission gear and camshaft wear, as well as pitting, have increased with the absence of antiwear and extreme-pressure additives."

"Even some of the big oil companies, such as Castrol and Pennzoil acknowledge the situation by making motorcycle-specific oils. It's no longer wise to use current standard automotive oil in your motorcycle. The money you save on the oil purchase is lost in damage to your engine and drive-train."

"The final decision is yours. You may not have a problem now and feel quite content using automotive oils. But three independent magazines and the motorcycle manufacturers are all warning us that we could experience expensive problems down the road."

Please post links to prove what you say. That's a lot of speculation. And no links to magazines either. Nobody believes there paid to advertise asses.

Formula 1 cars don't run motorcycle oil but yet they rev to 19k rpm. Why's that? And the truth be told motorcycle oils have LESS additives because we run a wet clutch. Car oils have a lot more friction modifiers.

J, You have to understand that my motive is not to convince you to run car oil. That's your decision and I respect that. However, I would like to convince you to stop posting such slanted information about other people using car oils. You seem to be ignoring that fact that there are numerous people on this board who have been running car oils in bikes for years without a single engine failure or other mechanical problem. Studies have shown that Castrol GTX held it's viscosity rating far better than Honda HP4 in a motorcycle. Funny how that works huh...

So I decided to go with Motul 5100....

I have an '06 600RR, it has about 5600K and I'm planning to change the oil when it gets to 6600K. I have a few questions to ask:

1. What grade should I use? 10w-40 or 15w-50?
2. Base on this site, is it enough to buy just 1 container?

Thanks! :icon_stud

^^^^ 10W-40, buy enough for 2 oil changes you'll save a lot in the long run.

Did this get answered? This is what they just put into my bike...10w-40. I asked about 10w-30 for the 07 and was told it was too thin and 10w-40 was better for our hot climate. They also said not to switch to FS till at least 8k miles.

the price & composition, 5100 is semi synthetic, 7100 is fully synthetic, you get more mileage out of the 7100.
