Just went down to check, the 10-11 bucks/bottle Royal Purple are actually motorcar oil lay. Those use for motorcycle are Royal Purple Max-Cycle which are sold for 16.50 per bottle :sian:

 

Motorcar oil (normally can tahan up to 8k rpm max) can use for wet clutch high rpm (16k rpm) motorcycle engine meh :confused:

I got a reply from the Royal purple guys. They say that it can be used on motorcycles. Hold on i go get the reply..

The Royal Purple SAE Motor Oils are API/ ILSAC certified; they have not been subjected to JASO test sequences. However, I am confident they would greatly exceed MA/ MB specifications. I can account personally for their wet-clutch compatibility as I have used these oils in my last three Honda street bikes ('95 CB750 Night Hawk, '98 VF750C Magna, and '00 VTR1000 Super Hawk) prior to the release of the Max Cycle line of engine oils (11/03). As well, we have literally thousands of customers using/ have used the SAE engine oils in wet-clutch applications. The SAE engine oils are a suitable alternative to the Max Cycle line of engine oils in all motorcycle applications.

Subject: Hi Does your Royal Purple Motor Oil hav JASO MA certification?

 

 

Hi just like to enquire if your Royal Purple Motor Oil have the JASO MA certification to support my motorcycle wet clutch??? I'll be waiting for your answer. Thank You. In Singapore I can't find Max cycle product range so I would like to try the Royal Purple Motor Oil. I am now riding a 4-stroke Honda Wave motorcycle.

True, true.........If I'm on a budget and riding a bigger capacity bike I'll definitely consider using back the RP oil.....

Taken from the Royal Purple Website.

 

I think this question is VERY COMMON.

 

 

 

What viscosity do you recommend for motorcycles?

 

Follow the manufacturer's recommendations regarding viscosity. Most manufacturers recommend a 10W40 for 4-cycle, liquid-cooled motorcycles. Air / oil cooled motorcycles typically specify a 20W50. Check your owner's manual for verification or contact Royal Purple's Automotive Technical Department at 888-382-6300.

 

So conclusion is

 

Air or Oil cooled engines require 20W50 or anything that ends with 50 behind for protection of the engine when it is hot.

 

Liquid cooled or engines with coolant are recomended 10W40 or above....

 

 

Hope that helps ......

RP got sell 10-40??

Got. Taken from the website again. Here it is.

 

Royal Purple® Motor Oil is recommended for use in all four-cycle gasoline engines and both two-cycle and four-cycle diesel applications including cars, trucks, motor homes / RVs, boats, commercial fleet and stationary industrial diesel engines.

 

Royal Purple® Motor Oil is a tough, long life, high performance oil that delivers superior protection and enhanced performance to gasoline and diesel engines. It gains its performance advantages from a blend of synthetic oils plus Royal Purple's proprietary, synthetic Synerlec® additive technology.

 

Synerlec® additive technology greatly reduces engine wear, including ring, cylinder and bearing wear. It is extremely tenacious, adheres to engine surfaces and remains after shutdown, which provides protection upon initial startup.

 

Multi-Grade Oils: 5W20, 5W30, 10W30, 10W40, 15W40, 20W50
