2018 Kawasaki Z650 ABS at 3100 miles (almost 5000 kms)

Previous fill: Motul 4T 5100 10w40 with OEM Kawasaki filter

OCI duration: 1500 miles (2500 kms)

Current fill: Shell Rotella T4 15w40 with OEM Kawasaki filter

I also checked coolant level, brake pads and cleaned/lubed the chain. This is the first time I am using HDEO in a motorcycle. Maybe it is a placebo effect? but I immediately felt that clutch engages slightly sooner and sharper than it used to be.

Castrol Actevo 4T 10W-40 with a HiFlo filter. I have about 200 miles on this oil and really like it so far.

When synthetic blend oils first came out I thought they were kind of a joke, but I've come to appreciate them.

I've tried HDEO , both 10-30 and 15-40, in three different brands and noticed that change with all of them. It's the reason I don't use them, hard to get that seamless shift with the clutch being a little too grabby.

2001 Honda Shadow Ace 1100, about 600 miles on this oil, changed it soon because it had the top end rebuilt last year.

Out. Rotella 15w40 and Defense 6607

In. Rotella 15w40 and Blue Supertech 6607


2008 Yamaha Royal Star 1300. Oil had roughly 2400 miles on it, changed it a little early because its going on a road trip end of the month out west

Out. Amalie 20w50 with Defense 6607

In. Amalie 20w50 with Blue Supertech 6607 as well.


I'd buy Callahan autoparts if I could.

1999 Honda Rebel 250 1,900 miles odometer (Not mine)

Drained: 10 year old + ?? smelly dark oil...probably from the factory lol

Added: Valvoline white bottle 15w-40 HD ($3 per gallon walmart clearance)

Bike ran smooth with old oil as it does with the new, old oil did have that acidic smell though..

A week ago changed oil on a 2008 Yamaha RSV that my parents just purchased. Drained whatever oil was in it and removed a Hiflo filtro filter

Installed a fram mc filter and roughly 4 quarts of Amalie 20w50 mc oil



Changed oil on my Kawasaki 800 Vulcan classic on Sunday. Took off a white supertech filter and drained Rotella 15w40.

New 15w40 rotella put in about 3 quarts with a quakerstate oil filter
