I may try the shell Ultra for no particular reason, just to say I tried it. The Beast really don't seem to care what I run in it. I have seen no difference between factory fill, Shell Rotella 15w40 conv and M1 10w 40 4T. I rarely let my oil go past 2500-3000 because I am a clean freak, so it probably dont matter what I run in it. I was thinking about trying the new Rotella T6 15w40 full syn also, Wal Mart has shelves of it for 20.00 a gallon. At that price, I could change it twice as often and still break even with the M1.

I no longer own a V Strom, but I'm still here because its the best bike forum going!
