No don't be concerned, defy 5w30 is perfect for that engine and is going to be my next fill in my 99 Vulcan that consumes much more than yours. I have been using Mobil 1 High Mileage 5w30 and Maxlife full synthetic 5w30 mostly but always 5w30.

I have a 2007 Ford Ranger which seems to have some oil consumption in the last year. I would estimate about 1.5 litres consumed over a 10,000 km service interval on 5W20 Pennzoil Platinum. I don't really see any leaks, but I would have to check more

Detroit Diesel factory fills their 15L on highway diesel engines with 10w30 now, and any 10w30 or 5w30 that meets their 93K218 spec is good for 50,000 mile OCI's per the manufacturer. Not that is not a typo... 50,000 mile OCI's per the manufacturer.
