This is what I bought last week. Not changing it till I do the starter clutch this weekend. But in the past I had used Castrol 15-40, found my starter clutch and Barnett clutch slipping. SO I will go with Most of the Forum and try Rotella.....

Over the last 29 years, I swore by Castrol GTX.. Then I swore by Walmart SuperTech... Now I swear by Rotella... All this swearing must not have offended the motorcycle engine gods, because the thing is still holding together, pushing 128,000 miles now.

Rotella... bar none. Plus I found neutral way easier with a new clutch. Apparently the clutch plates must have been sticking causing drag making neutral a bitch to find. Now I just stop and click neutral. What a difference

Shell Rotella 15W40 in my 99 VMax, and my 14 Versys. Not synthetic, Heavy Duty, Low cost, Shifts better and finds neutral better than the high cost Mobil 1 ever did. Too many people ahead of me said use it and they were right.
