From the manual:


Any oil chart will show 15W-40 for use in the 15-100 degree range.
1. That's not my manual and it does not state that or show that in any chart
2. Uh, not taking any advice from a SV rider
3. Honda makes a wide variety of weights and blends. None of them are 15W-40

No ? Don't you think that could be why they suggest using Honda oil and exclude any weight that they don't make? It's not like they are in the oil business, trying to outsell competitors or anything

I took that quote out of a 2009 CBR1000rr manual.

I guess you know more than anyone else though, since you ride a CBR and not an SV. That automatically makes you more knowledgeable.

I know what's required for my bike and how to use my bank to pay my credit card bill.

So are you holding this 2009 CBR manual or is it from a link? Is 15W-40 a common weight for motorcycle specific oil?

eh, it's been a couple of days since I started the thread. it's easier to use a general "you" than to go back and try to quote. I'm really just playing devil's advocate anyway as I really don't care what people choose to use either way. However, if I'm taking you literally, I guess I could quote your post that the Repsol oil is (paraphrasing here) the perfect oil for any motorcycle.

If there's one thing you should take away from motohouston.com, it's that you should always take me literally

Rotella T 10W-30 is not JASO MA. That's not an opinion.

It also has absolutely nothing to do with people using 15W-40 rotella in their motorcycles.

Kind of like your credit card bill.

I guess I missed the post where 15W-40 was the preferred weight for motorcycles. Can you quote that?

Oh, and you're welcome for my help with your online banking

You can't be serious. It says "(preferred)" next to 10W-30 in your manual because it is better for colder temps, which we don't even see in this part of the country.
here's a snap shot from the SV manual:

11018347 819702638067638 3256820979479801720 n?oh7970c7d0afd09b001e3c3d11d8ca0008&ampoe55A9C279&  gda  1437632496 3fd2175bd426a2adcf5cdbcabe57a603

So the SV manual say's 10W-40 is preferred. Your's says 10W-30. Which one is the "preferred" oil for "motorcycles"? I don't give a . I'm going off the temp ratings because they make more sense.

I'd be willing to bet you are doing more damage to your bike by running 10W-30 repsol or whatever overpriced brand in the summer time than you would if you used 15W-40 rotella.

How about we bet $1,000 that you wreck your bike again before it comes anywhere close to engine failure from any reason. Keep paying that card bill online though. It makes you a safer rider.

Not much difference in price, but Lucas was 6.99. I never used Lucas before. Went with something I trusted to work.

1. 10W-40 is preferred for Summer temps on the CBR, but the standard for most new Hondas like my 500F is 10W-30. 15W-40 is not listed as an option. Did you see what your manual recommended as the preferred weight? Buy a bike made in this decade and you might notice the manual has changed.
2. As slow as you ride it doesn't matter which oil you use
3. Is your credit good enough to borrow $1,000?
