First Oil Change

Bought the Shell Rotella T Triple Protection at Walmart and a Purolator oil filter.

Just wanted to make sure I got the right oil. Its the 15w-40 since it has the JASO that means its good for motorcycles right? First time not using a moto specific oil on one of my bikes.

I think it's not the JASO that's as important as the MA that follows it - wikipedia says this [remembering that the 919 is definitely a wet-clutch engine]:

JASO

The Japanese Automotive Standards Organization (JASO) has created their own set of performance and quality standards for petrol engines of Japanese origin.
For four-stroke gasoline engines, the JASO T904 standard is used, and is particularly relevant to motorcycle engines. The JASO T904-MA and MA2 standards are designed to distinguish oils that are approved for wet clutch use, and the JASO T904-MB standard is not suitable for wet clutch use.
For two-stroke gasoline engines, the JASO M345 (FA, FB, FC) standard is used,[18] and this refers particularly to low ash, lubricity, detergency, low smoke and exhaust blocking.
These standards, especially JASO-MA (for motorcycles) and JASO-FC, are designed to address oil-requirement issues not addressed by the API service categories. One element of the JASO-MA standard is a friction test designed to determine suitability for wet clutch usage.[9][19] An oil that meets JASO-MA is considered appropriate for wet clutch operations. Oils marketed as motorcycle-specific will carry the JASO-MA label.

Does anyone else run the 5w40 Rotella T? I have been running it and am not liking it compared to the amsoil. New rotella feels like amsoil does after 3k miles. Is this because of the 5w bit?

i have been running Rotella T 15w-40 solely in my 919 and in my 04 crf250x ... the 250X has ~ 800 hours on the ORIGINAL top end... most of the top ends dont last till 200 hours (stated interval for changing the piston is 15 hrs)

Needeless to say rotella t is good stuff.
