i wish you the best of luck. i'm betting the oil biz is a cut-throat industry.
when you have 10w-40 i'll give it a go!!!
i run that weight in both of my bikes.
Eak.....I poured in the 15w50 to my VStrom....which you have seen.
I just did a 500 mile ride with the wife (2-up)....with her make-up bag, curlers, blowdrier....etc..... Yeah, we were loaded over the VStrom limit. We ran the high-mountain stuff and I70 at 80 mph....pulling hard on the passes, etc..... for miles and miles, I was pushing well over 7k-8k RPM's.
I came home and the oil in the sight glass hasn't dropped a single bit.
I will tell everyone that with Mobil1 15w50 and with Rotella T6.....would have dropped in my sight glass, significantly. .....and this oil doesn't. My best guess is the...very high flash point. I can't explain it any other way.
I challenge anyone to buy a case and......make a complaint.
