Hi guys me again I'm looking for oil for my rsv 2006 milli it says 15/50 in manual. The guy who had before me said he just put 10/40. But I know he never took good care of it. would it be ok to put 10/40 in. I've also got a R1 2007 and can get Shell advance ultra fully synthetic for around £25 for 4ltr. 👍 👎

10/40 is fine but unless it had fully synth In before I would be wary of changing to it now. Clutch plates that have spent their life on one type rarely like the change and clutch slip often is the result.

I get the racing stuff 10 40 for mine it's about 32quid but yeah that should be fine make sure when you get a filter it's the right one as you can get a small one and a longer one

I would use the short housing if you have both as there have been stories of low pressure on start up with the larger one.

5w ie w stands for winter , so if its freezing outside you might need it 5w , in warmer counties you might need 15w or more so guess we are mild most of the time and a few weeks of the year it gets above 20c.

So I guess 10w would be right.
