Motorcycle-specific oil is a scam to trick people into paying more.

I use Rotella T6, it's not marketed as a motorcycle oil but it's JASO-MA certified which means it's safe for motorcycles. $48 for 5L but it goes on sale sometimes for under $40.

There's also T5 semi-synthetic for $35 or T non-synthetic for $30.

Does it matter that it says it's Diesel Engine Oil?

While I agree that Rotella T6 is a solid choice for bike oil - mainly due to the detergents and shear resistance - motorcycle specific oil is far from a "scam". Most street bikes share the engine and transmission oil, subjecting it to a fair bit of additional abuse that isn't seen in automotive applications. You don't need to be shelling out $15-20 bucks a liter for overpriced stuff from Motul, Maxima and Ipone, but at least realize that you can't just throw any oil in a bike and expect it to work well.

Currently using Amsoil (have a preferred account with them), I also have a Daytona 675 bought the bike from a guy using Rotella T5 and rode around with it for 2 oil changes before switching to AMS, The Rotella was not bad everything preformed as such, but when switching to the AMS there is a noticeable smoother shift and maybe mentally better cold idle; also use an EA filter if that matters lol

Anyways, safe riding everyone!

Thanks for the feedback. I was a Rotella user before as well. Sadly I found the models I used them with the shifting was NOT as smooth using T or T6.

I definitely was saddened I can't take advantage of Canadian Tire deals with 5L T6 $35-$40, so I just posted this thinking the cheapest I could find was 4L iPone $41 semi, figuring typically average one uses less than 4L.

Hopefully you guys think the Hitro filter not a bad price.. save about $ 4-5 from local

I usually buy from gpbikes.com
They only charge 5% tax to out-of-Ontario and they sometimes have specials.
I bought Motul 5100 last time for 39$ / 4L, shipped.

I also found Lucas Semi-synthetic 10W40 for $9.59 per L + 10% off CAA member card at NAPA Canada.

WIX filters are in the $12-13 at AutoValue.

I found Castrol DOT 4 Brake Fluid 384 mL for $5.38 at NAPA. It says synthetic but read that this is glycol based so full compatibility with what you may have from factory.
