your bike is now totaled. i'll take it off your hands, though, for $2000.

yea no biggie. if you ride it and feel like it makes a bad difference, then just change it again like xtremewlr said

5w-40 is thinner than 15w-40. As long as you didn't put automobile oil in it you're fine. I've heard of running Rotella, anybody else have experience with it...especially as far as the clutch is concerned.
