Tried that oil. Thought it was utter crap. Tranny felt clunky/notchy as hell. Oil change, trans felt fine.
Regular Rotella has always worked fine for me in previous bikes(havent tried it in the SV yet), but the T6 I'll never use in my bike again. Maybe for a car if I caught it on sale or something.
Several other guys have noted the trans feeling like crap when using T6, so It's not just me or my bike.
Never had any issues with Rotella making the trans feel notchy or clunky in the SV nor in the Super Duke. Always worked and felt great to me.Also, according to the testing I've seen, Rotella T6 , although it is Jaso MA certified, has more PPM of Moly than Pennzoil Platinum. As far as I know, Moly is the "bad guy" that causes wet clutches to slip, as it packs up in between the clutch fibers.
Hey xtremewlr, try using the Pennzoil Platinum 10-40 or Golden SPectro oil for your next oil change and tell me if you can or can't feel a difference in your trans.
The last oil sample I sent in from the Super Duke was for Rotella T6 and show 58ppm Moly. Granted, the engine was still breaking in so I'm not overly concerned about that and nor did the guys at Blackstone seem to be with that number. I ran T6 in the SV1000 for well over 10k miles without any issues.
I really don't see a need to try another oil when I'm quite happy with the Rotella T6 stuff.
