Hey guys .
So Canadian Rider today , we're gonna be doing a comparison for two different really popular oils for your motorcycle .
Two of the most popular brands that come up and I always see this in discussion forums and everything is Rotella T six and 300 V .
Um What do you use ?
Um Well , I think it depends on what you're using it for .
Um So let's talk similarities of the oils first .
They're both group for synthetic based on oil .
So that's the highest quality synthetic oil that's in the market and they're both J O certified .
So J O MA certified as a certification that this oil can be used in wet clutch applications such as your motorcycle when it's the oil is going through and actually engaging with the clutch .
So let's talk about the T six product .
Um right off the bat .
This is an all purpose oil .
This oil has been around for a while now and people just rave about this oil online .
They use it for so many applications .
My father uses it for his 18 wheelers , his trucks .
I used it on my ninja 2 50 .
My so 95 , you can go online , you can find people who have been using this oil for everything they need to loop up freaking parts , they put it in their lawnmower , whatever this oil is like a great all purpose oil .
A lot of people use it and it's no different for your motorcycle .
Um I've heard some people say , hey , the Rola six oil , you know , it's really cheap and that's a really good benefit of it , but it wasn't designed for your motorcycle applications .
It may , it may not have been specifically designed for that , but it was specifically designed for diesel truck engines .
And when people say that , you know , the R P MS of those engines is completely different than a motorcycle .
Well , no , not really .
The turbos are spinning much higher R PM than one of our motorcycle engines and it deals with a lot of stress .
It's a high load environment .
This oil provides great sheer protection , has great detergent pack .
It's a full synth oil .
Now , from what I've read and research and from what I've experienced with my ninja 2 50 in my car using the Rotella T six is that it provides great protection .
Everything's great with it , but I prefer to kind of change up the oil a little bit sooner than I would with maybe another kind of oil if I was going with the 300 .
Um So again , the Ella , for example , I got for $40 the tool for five liters .
The mo tool was $90 for four liters .
So you can see this is there's a lot of savings and benefit um for your pocket .
But now let's talk about what motu oil kind of brings .
So the oils brings this cheap , um great lasting all purpose oil for your application .
But the Mola oil is really designed for your motorcycle .
Um Again , so this is a full group , four synthetic based stock oil .
Um It's J O M AJ O MA two certified .
So the ma two means that it's got a little bit less phosphorus and boron in the product .
So it's going to be better for your cat converters if you have a cat on your motorcycle .
Um So this oil is designed specifically for your motorcycle , high revving applications .
It's an ester based technology oil .
Um So what that means is that it's going to be kind of sticking onto the internal parts of your engine much better than a traditional synthetic oil and it has anti foaming agents .
So if you're at the higher R PM , some oil can 10 the foam .
And now , I don't know , I personally have no experience to verify this , but reading they apparently other synthetic oils have a tendency to foam , the higher R P MS that this moto product will resist that foaming and give you better protection , the high R PM uh heat ready usage .
Now , for me personally , I'm going to be changing my 899 Panga with the uh moto 300 V for the first time .
You know , I , I , I actually posted the first time on a motorcycle forum and I got blasted by some people saying don't use your 600 ducati .
Uh , you spent $15,000 on a bike and now you're chipping out on the oil .
I'm not cheaping out on the oil .
I'm just thinking to myself , hey , why spend $90 on an oil if it's only going to give me a 1% better benefit at the most .
I'm not debating the fact that .
Well , 2 , 300 visa better oil .
I understand that .
But for a guy , let's say like me , that isn't going to the track day blasting his bike around , you know , I'm just kind of cruising around city driving a little bit , you know , going around like this , like a little bit of craziness once in a while .
Um , is the Rotella T six more than enough for my applications probably .
Um So I've used it for my car .
I've used it for my ninja 2 50 .
My , I've never seen actually a reported problem with Rotella T six oil failure of an engine in any way in any lawnmower in any bike , in any car , in any truck .
Well , a few trucks have blown up but that's not from the oil .
Um , but overall , I think it's a great oil now .
This isn't about , um , you know what's better for a motorcycle .
What's better for a motorcycle is the moto 300 B but I'm saying , you know , if you got a car and you got some other stuff and you want to buy one oil that's , does it all pretty much , I think the vitality is a great option .
It's , it's cheap , widely available .
You can go to Walmart or Napa or part source to pick it up and , um , I , I think I'm gonna go on my second oil change with that oil .
Um And yeah , so I just want to figure out what your thoughts are .
I know a lot of people are really invested in this .
We got a lot of people that are like only 23 V and you know , they'll stab the people that ever choose Rotella T or T six for any other reason .
And we got people at the T six camp saying those people are wasting all their money .
Um It's all marketing gimmicks .
Now you tell me what your thoughts are .
I personally think like for the first time , you know what , I'm gonna go ahead and use the moto 300 V on my Ducati 899 .
I'm going to continue using the Rotella T six in my ninja 2 50 my sub and my father will continue using it and for all other purposes , our lawnmower , cetera .
Um What do you think ?
What have you been using this oil for Have you seen any loss of protection for T six in your product ?
Do you use 1 to 300 V ?
Have you have a comparison ?
Have you tried them both ?
