Exclamation valvoline 10w40 mc oil = bad

do not use the new valvoline 4stroke motorcycle oil in 10w-40. i just did an oil change in my 06 rr and it sounds like everything is loose in the motor/trans.

im goin tonight or tomorrow to get the shell rotella t syn in hopes it quiets it up.

The only objections I have to this site is the Mobil 1 Extended Performance (Gold Cap) and the filters. I have personally used Mobil 1 EP oil and had clutch slippage with it. I would also stick with the OEM filters. I would also agree to stick with a 10w-40 weight oil.

Does it make the clutch slip?

Repsol? Repsol is good stuff. I've only used one other 50 weight oil that would agree with the bike and that was Mobil 1 Red Cap (15W-50). But the 50w oil doesn't make the clutch slip. It makes the Cam Chain Tensioner tick like crazy because the heavier oil makes the oil pump work harder when it's cold. It has problems getting oil up to the top of the motor so the CCT runs dry for a few minutes during cold starts.

I've used repsol racing 10w50 twice in my bike. It's super smooth for the first 1000 miles then it turns to junk...same results with the Rotella T. I've also used Motul e tech with better results... I've used Amsoil on two separate occasions and i've found it to be the best of the bunch.

i've always gone with mobile1 mx4t 10w-40.

the site says, "10w-40 oils should not be used in a motorcycle that runs the engine oil through the transmission." why is this? cuz our oil runs through out transmission right?

yes our engine oil also lubricates our transmission gears too, i don't know about the Mobil website but if the oil in question is made specifically for bikes then i don't see the problem in running 10W-40 oil.

hey, I am going to make the first oil change (600 miles) I heard it was better to use regular oil than synthetic for this one. Is that true? why? For oil I was thinking about using repsol. What do you guys think?? any advise???

Repsol is the goodstuff Crazy-dude & yeah i think you should run mineral based oil for this oil change before you step up to 100% syth oil.

I have to disagree with your Rev. There's no reason why he can't change over to synthetic oil. It doesn't stop friction and it won't effect the break-in. If it did you wouldn't see car manufacturers running Mobil 1 straight out of the factory. IMHO, that's another urban legend started by the dealers to make you buy thier oil.

Provide a link if you can. They're most likely talking about a specific type of oil as they know it has too many friction modifiers for a wet-clucth application.
