After trying Motul 7100 on one bike, and then putting it on the other 2, I’m a believer. Never did I think I would say this... I Always used good brand name synthetics, but they are pretty much the same, and had not found a difference in all my vehicles between them; thus, alternating between brand name synthetics depending which one was on sale. But on all 3 of my bikes, I’m sure it is not a coincidence the temp gauge dropped at least 1 bar, and more, and shifting is even better. Especially on the Z, that 1st oil change transformed the bike, and the shifting. Motul has me now. To the point I will be trying it soon for the 1st time on a car, on my new Ridgeline.
