I have about 400 miles to go before I send the Rotella off to Blackstone. I have a new gallon of Genuine Kawasaki 10w40 sitting in the garage waiting to go in after the Rotella. Blackstone told me in my last report to feel free to experiment so just out of curiosity I am. I figure 2,000 miles of Rotella won't kill the bike even if it proves to be inferior in comparison. So far it is quiet as a chrch mouse and shifts very smoothly with the Rotella. Actually, it shifts much smoother than that high dollar ester based Motul that was in prior. Maybe I'll compare about 5 different oils, then take the ones with the best additive packages and blend them. Then sample it just for the hell of it.
Never pick a fight with an old man.. If he's too old to fight, he'll just kill you..
