Engine oil honda 919

So I just bought 1 gal of rotella t6 Diesel engine oil. Heard everybody was ranting and raving about it.

Anybody with a Honda 919 tried this stuff? Gonna put it in this weekend

Thats what i run. No complaints. I like to change more frequently with the T6. I shoot for every 2,500 miles. 3,000 max. By then, to me shifting doesn't feel as crisp with fresh oil.

If you can feel the physical shifting mechanics inside the bike change as the oil gets old then the oil is not doing its job period and you need to find a better engine oil. It will have already started to lose the anti-shear properties and breakdown long before you can feel it happening.

"Feeling" my 9er shift would freak me out, if theres one thing I never think about its the rock solid clicks of this gearbox. Its one of the best things about the bike IMO.

Could be psychological, shifts are solid still just and leaps and bounds better than my old ninja
