motul 7100 10w40 fullly synthetic seems to check all the boxes as well.
Yep! I have been using Motul in my bikes since the beginning of my bike life. I do run the 7100 10W40 in the Ninja. I am very happy with it. I did make a mistake when I first bought the bike and went to 300V but it immediately started to have mis shifting issues, so after about 75 miles I dumped it and went back to 7100. I don't know what I was thinking...
The Ninja takes 2 litres when change the filter, any just have to be careful what viscosity you use. Motul was the leading oil brand for years, I prefer factory brand oil eg Honda,Kawasaki,Yamaha,Suzuki.IMHO a whole year might be a little long for that oil. Here's why:
Motul 300V is "racing engine oil developed for Factory Teams". I'd be surprised to find out there's marketing hype for a racing engine oil that recommends leaving it in your engine for 12 months. For that there's Motul 7100, which is their ester synthetic oil with an additive package that's suitable for street use and normal oil change intervals. There are hints in the data sheets.
Motul 300V recommendations:For optimum engine and gearbox performance, avoid mixing with other synthetic or mineral lubricants.Oil change: according to your own use.Motul 7100 recommendations:Drain interval: according to manufacturers’ recommendations and tune to your own use.Can be mixed with synthetic or mineral lubricants.
I just fill my crankcase up with the likes of that WD-40 you are showcasing there.......I am also pretty sure that tyre shine, when generously sprayed all over the tread surface of your tire increases mechanical grip without the need to adjust shock length to change swingarm angle.......I call it "race swingarm angle in a can"...........pin it to win it!The Ninja takes 2 litres when change the filter, any just have to be careful what viscosity you use.

For winter 10-30w is recommendation
Or for summer 10-40w is recommended.
I ussualy change every 3-6k for oil and or before after a track day. View attachment 13224
I'll bet you anything that photo is not taken in Shane's garage. Surprisingly he actually posted a real photo in the 'show us your garage' thread:
The only motorcycle reference I'm seeing is one rear stand. Where's all the suspension tuning gear??
That beam of shining light must be coming off DMT's hand..
Yeah I reckon. The NZ & Oz govts are having talks at present about opening up the border between the two countries once Australia gets rid of it too. We havent had a new case for 9 days now and there is only one (known) active case in the whole country.Kiwi, Can you imagine what the "All Blacks" are going to be like when your Prime Minister finally lifts all her stay at home orders and lets the boys out of their cages? I'm not sure our '2nd amendment boys' and their toys would stand a chance.
I just read a very sad article about the 2nd amendment/boogaloo movement looking for any reason to start a civil war; wearing masks, cops murdering citizens etc, etc...It is getting to be a huge movement thanks to the help of facebook. And on that note, I'm shutting off all news and giving the world over to the millennials, its time for a few beers and a bike ride, or maybe a bike ride then a few beers!Kiwi, Can you imagine what the "All Blacks" are going to be like when your Prime Minister finally lifts all her stay at home orders and lets the boys out of their cages?
