Ok, so Motorcycle oil vs Car oil?
Went to CT and all they had was Motorcycle Mobile 1 10w40 synthetic in the 1L bottles (I actually need 5w40). Unfortunately they didn't have anything else.
Do people use that Rotella engine oil in their bikes? I've always used Dino oil or semi synthetic for my other bikes and never had a problem, but the K1300R is in a different class than what I've owned before.....
Use it and be happy, Canadian Tire has the regular dino oil and Wally World has the Synth, both are JASCO MA certified and not expensive.
If you want an inexpensive M/C specific oil Canadian Tire usually has Castrol M/C for about 5 or 6 bux liter... or their own Moto Master brand, nothing wrong with either of them.
... and really the best oil is the oil you change regularily...

I've seen it at CT for a decent price, during oil sales. Good prices on car oil as well. I've seen this oil for sale at marine shop across from the Brit MC dealer on Powell St.

If there was ever a thread that needed to be derailed, an oil thread is the first priority for derailing!
Last year I scored a great deal on semi synth oil and a new helmet at Kreator in Kelowna. I bought 8 litres of Semi Synth Castrol 20/50 m/c oil and anew flip front helmet for roughly $88 taxes in. The lid was 75% off and they took and additional 75% off at the till! The oil was $5 litre.
I couldn't get out of there fast enough as I was sure they had f'ed up.
That's all I got to add.
Even for semi-synthetic, that's a smokin' deal. And a new helmet too??? Frickin''''''
The lid was about $40 pre tax and regular price I think was $175? I even questioned her, as I fear karma. Nope, that was the price: 75% off and another 75% at the till.
The oil was a smoking deal. I cleaned him out. If he'd more than 8 I would've taken them all. The clutch in the Triumph can be picky too but so far it likes this oil.
