Not the synthetic stuff, But the regular Rotella triple T or whatever its called. Well, Let me see how to explain this. It meets all the specs but it doesnt say Jaso-MA certified. I ended up sending an email to and then calling an engineer at Shell in Houston Texas. He sent me all the data sheets on the oil and said it most definately works just fine and would be JASO-MA certe'd except Shell doesn't want it to be because of some oil they sell in europe but not here and don't want their say 4'ish dollar a quart oil to compete with their $15 a quart botique motorcycle oil.
Anyway it meets all the specs, I'll try to dig through my email in a few days and post the info.
Also I've been running the Rotella in my '06 636 since the second oil change with nary a hitch, no shifting problems or anything, just remember to tru the proper viscosity based on the chart found in your owners manual.
Viper: Good morning, gentlemen, the temperature is 110 degrees.
Wolfman: Holy shit, it's Viper!
Goose: Viper's up here, great... oh shit...
Maverick: Great, he's probably saying, "Holy shit, it's Maverick and Goose."
Goose: Yeah, I'm sure he's saying that.
