Hi Alleycatdad - Thanks for the feedback. We have had feedback from many other users especially on bikes like the DR650 that have improved shifting after running this oil.

Royal Mfg. does not manufacture a 10W50 for bikes, not a big diff between that and a 15W50. You should be able to run that 15W50 just fine especially on a bike that is liquid cooled and regulates its engine temp better.

Thanks,
Bern

I just got back from the Quien Sabe 600 put on by RMAR, once again a great adventure. We rode point to point and camped anywhere we landed. Here are some pics from the trip through the northern NM mountains and we randomly ended up in CO as well!!???

Oh thats where you got it from. I am so sorry that's a typo. Specific to bikes we carry 15W50 and 10W40 full synthetic oil only which covers most single and twin thumpers import and U.S. The full list is on post 1 and my site.

I would like to support your effort and a US company.

One of my bikes is a 2009 BMW R1200GS which the manual calls for 20W50 SF minimum.

The Semi syn 20W50 is what I am thinking of trying..........do you or anyone else have any experience with that grade in the BMW boxer motors?

Thanks

Don

Thanks,

Hi - Here is the response I got.

"I run the 15/50 in my BMW K1200, the Scrambler and the Honda. But I've noticed the 650 L Honda seems to do better with the 10/40. "

Your call on saving the $'s on going full or semi. Keep in mind there is not much of a difference between a 20W50 and 15W50.

Both have a 50 viscosity index at 210 F so they flow the same at that temp. The difference is that the 20W50 provides the same 50 viscosity at low temps whereas the 15W50 provides the same flow at even lower temps - which is better!

If it was my BMW I would spend the extra $15 on a case. I am not trying to up sell you, it just makes sense since you can run much further between changes including oil filters, effort etc.

Hope this helps.

Bern

Thanks for the reply. I will go with the 20w50 as I am using a semi syn 20w50 now. I change it often as the boxer is hard on oil.

I like the idea of buying US and supporting the trail organizations!

Order placed.

went out for a small ride today with the fresh change. I know most claims over oils like this are simply placebo effect or purely wishful thinking. But with that in mind, I swear my DR650 gearbox shifts noticeably smoother with the RM Super Syn in it. And I run nothing but synthetics.
It truly does.

Just ordered some 15W-50 for the KTM 990. Looking forward to seeing how this stuff works.

Thank you Frank for the feedback. Believe me, we did not go for a placebo effect when we had Royal change their formula.... we went out to beat the best - sans a fancy high $ bottle.
