A group IV or group V motorcycle specific. Know what your buying. I've had incredible luck with Redline 10-40

Not Royal Purple, no. It's no where near as good an oil as you can get for that money.

when it comes down to it, rotella is 15w40/10w30 oil that meets/exceeds requirements for our engines. and it is also JASO MA rated so it is safe for wet clutch use.

 

Works great and you can get 5gal pales of it for 60-70$. If you are feeling rich, ROTELLA t6 is the synthetic version and it is also safe for wet clutch.  But given that a semi truck can get 500,000 - 1,000,000 miles out of an engine running triple. I think it is just fine for us

This is where people get confused. Yes trucks get up to a million miles but the sumps hold gallons and bikes hold 1 quart. Trucks rpm generally is below 2500 rpm's and these bikes run up to 13000. Trucks have oil coolers and bikes don't. Huge differences!

All true for the most part.  Apples to oranges etc. Still cant ignore that thousands of people use rotella for thousands of hours with zero signs of accelerated wear. We also change oil so frequently no matter what brand or type.

 

Think of the pressure heat and stress of connection rods, cam lobes etc in a diesel engine with a compression ratio of 20:1. It far exceeds what our tiny 4 strokes put out. 

 

If its good enough for that kind of engine abuse AND its safe for wet clutch. You have to be crazy to think its not good enough for 5-10 hours inside a 12-13:1 4 stroke.
