So I finally found a shop that had a bottle on the shelf, as I didn't want to order a box of 4 x 4 litre only to be stuck with it if I didn't like it.

But I shouldn't have worried, bike runs so much quieter & the gearbox is shifting cleaner than it ever has. :)

Will be ordering a box in the coming weeks

Just thought I'd share.

My girl got some of this in 10W-60 today after a sale at Repco. $46!
Man, new oil almost feels as good as new rubber :D The biggest difference I've noticed in my bikes with new oil is less of a 'clunk' from N to 1. Surprises me every time.

Been running the Penrite (after thinking I would give it a go after reading about it on here) since purchasing my bike last year. Very happy with the performance so far.

Hi, I too have been running Penrite 10W60, but as it was the only 60 grade available at the time, I was using '10 Tenths Premium10' in 10W60 grade. It is fully synthetic and suitable for motorcycles, in fact was the recommendation on their website for MV's big 4 in line motors. Found it be as good as any other if not better.
My only concern, it definitely ran a little hotter in town which I put down to the thicker 60 grade when compared to the Amsoil and Motul 40+W oils I had used previously. So I was planning on trying a slightly lighter Penrite grade like the 15W50 Donsy appears to use. So, Donsy any thoughts on this? I will be staying with Penrite, I will switch to the MC4ST type but 10W60 or 15W50??? NB: Live in Melbourne but it isn't that cold to worry about cold starting, don't ride on the cooler days anyways, purely for pleasure, predominately on sunny days.

15w50 is fine for MV in your temperature range.
