    Sorry but stated as you did this IS NOT RIGHT.

    Not just any automotive oil will work because of the wet clutches that most bikes have.

    If the automotive oil in question has too many "friction additives" it will make the clutch slip.

    YOU can do whatever you want but we will not let you give out bad advice here.
    Some car oils will work and some won't. Most diesel oils will work too but not all.

    For instance, Rotella T-6 synthetic diesel oil works fine and now carries the SAE motorcycle rating too.

    IF you put oil into a wet-clutch bike that is NOT motorcycle rated you are taking a BIG chance........that might turn out to be a LOT more expensive than the few pennies you save on the oil.
    Don't believe everything that you think.

    Yeah Sorry , should have stated Normal Mineral Based oils that have no additives,, as the thread states about Synthetic Oils not being compatible with a wet clutch ( some people have had problems some haven't ) I thought it would be a given ,,For a good read and actual scientific facts Google,, Motorcycle Oils Vs Automotive Oil written on ducatimeccanica.com and see how the world gets Hoodwinked like a Chump

    Another vote for Rotella. I put T3 15W40 Rotella in all my bikes. Has motorcycle certification (wet clutch as described earlier), meets the viscosity range of any bike I've owned so far, is inexpensive and has a great ad pack. Can't go wrong.

    Actually these days you can.
    Their T-6 synthetic is no longer acceptable due to their adding MOLY to the forumla.
