"The ZX-14 has a lot of HP and torque and it loves the Rotella T. The ZX-14s run hot normally and the Rotella T has helped the bike run much cooler too. I highly recommend Shell Rotella T synthetic [T5 or T6]."

That's great advice.....go to a Suzuki Katana forum to get info about a Kawasaki

......just fucking brilliant.

The answer I would expect from someone with nothing new to add, just bashing.

I've used the T5 and T6 for the last couple years, nothing bad has happened, everything feels the same, bikes run just fine. Done trackdays, everything went well and still is. I have it in my 250, Daytona 675, and my little CRF70, all run just fine. A company like Shell isn't going to put an oil out with a JASO MA certification that is going to murder your bike.

^No I was just being a dick.


But on a serious note.
Ask yourself a question:
Is your bike a diesel? No?
Then why would you use oil meant for a diesel engine?

0protection just as good as mc oil...higher levels of protective additives...more affordable...plus it has the required spec as well as JASO...and no warranty issues.

I don't, but I would as it has been proven time and again, by the lovely people of the several motorcycle communities I have been a part of, to work.

I've used Rotella T6 5W40 in a 250, as well as my 650. No issues with either. I have a diesel car and this oil is suitable for both car and bike, so I only have to keep one kind on hand.
