Makes no difference in engine oil selection.

John, thanks for the update. Let us know your thoughts after the Texas trip.


Been a while since I have been here on the site....

Yeah, I have stuck with my 'Franken-blend' of 50% T6 Rotella 5w40 synthetic and 50% T4 Rotella 15w40 conventional.

I am using it in all my bikes and the wife's bikes: CT, KTM 950, BMW Sertao, Versys and KLX

Love the semi blend with all full JASO certs.


.......
