Oil compatibility??

so i have had to top up the oil in my 2010 F4, after draining some out

i now have the issue of what oil is in it, MV Agusta recomend silkoline 10-60 according to the dealer, but when i had it serviced a few months ago the tax invoice charged me for castrol 4T

So WTF they r doing, i've no idea....

i now want to use the silkoline 10-60, but will the 2 oil's mix safely?? i will drain all the oil out of corse, but u can never get it all from around the engine...

sugestions? or does anyone know if its safe to mix the oil's??
i ask because i have had a car engine fail due to oil failure so i'm kind of paraniod now

No problem mate, just use a decent 10 or 20W60 synthetic oil. Mobil One is good too, i know you have limited options out your way.

Moto Guzzi shops (usually small serviced based shops with one or two new guzzis on the floor) carry the Motul 10w60 4T jaso at a reasonable price. Motul was selling it for $10 ltr. US at laguna seca. wish i hadn't been flying
