Picked up a Gallon last night from the local wallyworld. Sure enough its MA2 rated for our bikes. It may just what we have been waiting for....

a lot of happy users with the conventional 15-40 so the fake synthetic 15-40 should be even better on the cheap!

I'll be keeping an eye out at WM for this stuff, not here yet. Lots of bikers happy with the T6 5W-40, but I would prefer the 15W-40 for the shared sump.

Even at retail price, it's cheaper than a "dedicated" MC oil. Hope it performs well.

I was about to pick up a gallon, but couldn't resist the last 7 quarts of M1 4T 10w-40 for $5/qt. Valvoline 10w40 dino m/c oil was on clearance at $2.50/quart..[Linked Image]

Anybody else running this yet?

I'm tempted to dump my T5 Blend and test it out

Finish out the OCI with the T5 15w40. It turned in a great UOA in my ZRX1200 over the course of 3,700 miles in terms of staying in grade and wear numbers.

I want to see the add-pack numbers on the new T6 we are discussing. Haven’t found it at my Wally World yet, look forward to seeing it show up.

I just saw this oil the other day and I was surprised. I've been using Delvac 1300 in my VStrom 1000 with great results but I thought I've been reading that HDEOs have been changing recipes? This is making me nervous about using them.

I live in Michigan and it's cold but I really don't start riding until it gets in the high forties. The Suzuki 1000 v twin can suffer clutch shudder and idle hanger and the heavier oil is supposed to help. I may have give this T6 15w40 a try.

My main concern is the zinc and phosphorus numbers. Bikes are still flat tappet for the most part, 1100-1200ppm (or more) is where I would hang my hat for zinc and 100 ppm less for phosphorus. Getting down in the sub-1000 ppm range just isn’t where I want to be.

With that said, can anyone tell me the main job of boron? Does it make up for lower zinc levels as an anti-wear, is it a better cleaning agent than anti-wear, etc. I have read the info on the forum, but am curious if there is one function it does more/better than other functions?

As I understand it, the clutch shudder on these bikes is due to worn primary drive (clutch basket) damper springs.
