While browsing the automotive section of Walmart the other day I noticed they had the Rotella stocked.

The T4 was less than $16 a gallon.

It seems to have all of the correct motorcycle ratings and it would be a much cheaper alternative.

Anyone running it?

Just about everybody. LOL well that may be an exaggeration, but a lot are using Rotella. I use the T6 synthetic 5W-40. You can find that for less than $30. Others use the T5 15W-40 synthetic blend. I would think all would be fine if you are changing your oil regularly.

Good to know, considering that even the Super Tech motorcycle oil is over $8 a quart.

Be happy you aren't doing 3 different fluids every 5k. Runs me about a $100.00 every service.

Changed oil & filter in my R* a few days ago, $30
