If your gonna run rotella it needs to be t6 and I run Honda oem or hi flo filter
Ok. I thought it was t5. Glad you chimed in. Hahaha
T5 is not rated for a wet clutch. T6 is so run that, do not run T5.
Got it. Now what weight and how many quarts.
There is only one weight of T6. I believe its 10w40. It’s just fine I use it in all of my bikes. I don’t know how much oil the CBR needs but one of the gallon jugs should get you there I would assume. It always been enough for my bikes (FJR, RC51, VFR 800).
3.2 quarts usually I start at 3 quarts and add in anywhere from .1 to .2 extra
Do some research dont listen to that rotella shit. Go get u synthetic honda oil
Yea I don’t recommend it either.
Run the rotella it’s great job insurance for us engine builders.
They’ll never listen to us track guys. We know every inch of our bike but nothing about there bike is how they think
Shit most track guys are running rotella
I use full synthetic and a k&n filter
Ya i NOT run a k&n filter on anything i own.
Mobil 1 4t and a k&n. Sold it running like a top with 36k mi.
What is wrong with using Honda full synthetic?
I was using conventional Honda oil, switched to the full synthetic, I couldn’t believe how much smoother shifting is. Smooth as a hot knife thru butter!
Motul 300v is where its at. A little pricey, but had a noticeable difference in shifting feel after switching
I’ve run t6 a few times. It’s not bad, but I had to change it more frequently than better stuff.
You need an oil with friction modifier t5 does not have it the clutch WILL slip motorcycle oil is different from car and trucks.
