It is widely accepted that one can move grades, one up.....or one down. If your bike calls for 40wt, then moving to 50wt is just fine. Remember that this oil is PAO synthetic and has tremendous flow properties....not like any normal 40wt convential motorcycle oil.

The difference between any 40wt I have had in my VStrom and Monarch 15w50 is not noticable in terms of feeling like it is sluggish. It just feels very smooth.
10w-40 is pretty much they standard for most bikes outside of the harley v-twin word and maybe old air-cooled bikes used in the summer, so i'm confused how they could have zero demand?

i completely understand your passion about helping them move forward, but not having 10w-40 is a huge gap in their product line.

yes a little over $6 a bottle is the correct price for a POA (type 4 synth) automotive labled bottle (Mobil 1 being the baseline at approx the same price) and for sure cheaper than other MC specific POA sell for. most all MC specific oil is way over-priced to start with with, not to mention the bogus hydro-cracked type 3 many companies pass off for synthetic. $6 comes in much better than the well used and respected Amsoil and they have varied qualities of synth depending on the oil. of course POA doesn't hold weight to top shelf Ester-based Type 5 synth, but works very well below race levels of performance and you're not paying $10+ qt for it. Only a few are true Type 5 such as Redline, certain Motuls and Maximas.

like i said before make 10w-40 and they'll sell boat loads of cases!

I'm not accusing Monarch of any trickery, I just thought it odd that they didn't have a valid link to a PDF of the MSDS on the site, that's all. I'd be curious about the oil's TBN, as well....I geuss mostly because I'm a bit of a nerd

Are the Monarch oils true PAO synthetics? Given the price, it would be a great bargain if they were!! I'd love to try it in my KLR, or my 80K mile, 30 years old Suzuki GS1100EZ, for that matter.

All that said, I'd love a look see at the MSDS if possible.

how did the company come up that name?
to be honest it sounds like an attempt to rip off from royal purple, not something original.

i wish you the best of luck. i'm betting the oil biz is a cut-throat industry.
when you have 10w-40 i'll give it a go!!!
i run that weight in both of my bikes.

The price is $73.99 for a case of (12) quarts of Royal Monarch Motorcycle Super Syn 15W-50 shipped to your doorstep directly from the manufacturer. This is an exceptional vlaue and ground shipping is included so stock up or split a case with your buddy.

How do we do it? It is simple; there is no middle-man or wholesaler involved in the process it is straight from the manufacturer. Additional discounts are the result of the product being manufactured by a family owned, independent U.S.A. Company.
Additional incentive - We pledge between 5% to 10% (volume based) to COHVCO & Trail Preservation Alliance. These non-profit organizations fight to keep trails open for all OHV users, please support them

Who is Royal Manufacturing Company? Royal Mfg. Co. with affiliates Troco Oil and Wright Oil has been a compounder, blender, packager and marketer of high quality lubricants and greases since 1914. The Royal Oklahoma facility, Troco Oil is resting on 18 acres with manufacturing and warehousing space of 186,000 sq. ft. and office space of 6,000 sq. ft. Annually Royal's modern lubricant plant manufactures over 40 million gallons of oil products, mostly for wholesale purposes. You might be using it already!

If you are interest in larger quantities such as case pallets or 55 gallon drums we can supply those as well at similar discounted pricing. If you want to just try it out we can also send some quarts of oil - just contact me directly for details on that.
Thanks for the interest!

Eak.....I poured in the 15w50 to my VStrom....which you have seen.

I just did a 500 mile ride with the wife (2-up)....with her make-up bag, curlers, blowdrier....etc..... Yeah, we were loaded over the VStrom limit. We ran the high-mountain stuff and I70 at 80 mph....pulling hard on the passes, etc..... for miles and miles, I was pushing well over 7k-8k RPM's.

I came home and the oil in the sight glass hasn't dropped a single bit.

I will tell everyone that with Mobil1 15w50 and with Rotella T6.....would have dropped in my sight glass, significantly. .....and this oil doesn't. My best guess is the...very high flash point. I can't explain it any other way.

I challenge anyone to buy a case and......make a complaint.

Eakins, in regards to the rip off on the Royal name, let's look at the history. Royal Manufacturing circa 1914.
This article about Royal Purple indicates 1986, mmm who ripped who off - LOL! http://www.royalpurple.com/company-history/

Royal Manufacturing is by no means a new little start-up company, rather a proud American company with more history that many others with a 10 million gallon capacity plant. Keep in mind they have been around for a long time but as a wholesaler and industrial supplier of railway, construction, marine, mining and automotive oil products. They make products for other labels, so this is a concession to be selling as we are in small volume. Since you asked here is some information about the companies history; published here: http://www.royalmfg.com/aboutus.html the full article is on the clickable link below named "Full Throttle at Royal Manufacturing".

10W-40 Should be coming soon, we have requested access to it.

The Beginning of Royal Manufacturing's Legacy
A Look Back
(Written by Lisa Tocci, Full Throttle at Royal Manufacturing, featured in Lubes n’ Greases Magazine, June 2009.)

The Mallory family’s involvement with Royal Manufacturing began in the Depression years. “In the late 1930s, my mother Lee started working for Royal Manufacturing, which at the time was a small specialty grease company serving the oil fields,” related Bill Mallory. “They needed day laborers, so she went home at lunch and brought Dad back to work. Later, the company’s owners went to serve during World War II, and the banks took over the company. Soon, my dad Dick Mallory was running it, and then he bought it from the banks.” Like his son, the senior Mallory had a passion for expansion, and in the 1950s he bought the remnants of Tulsa Refined Oil Co. (Troco), a lubricants compounder in business since 1914, and merged its operations into Royal’s.

“Every year, we saw growth,” Mallory Jr. went on, “and in 1976 we acquired Wright Oil down in San Antonio. Wright supplied the same “outside” businesses that were Royal’s stronghold — off-highway, heavy equipment and farming. Bill Mallory Jr., was able to build its volume by diversifying into new markets, such as railroad engine oil.

In 1983 fire destroyed the Troco plant in Tulsa. Tulsa rebuilt and rebounded, and has seen two expansions since; Wright Oil also has grown, moving into a new plant in 2007 with 10 million gallons of annual capacity. Another diversification came in 1998, when Royal Manufacturing began selling base oil into Mexico and the Caribbean. By 2000, business had increased enough to build tanks in Brownsville. Royal has added another 30,000-barrel tank last year. Subsidiary RTW Terminal in Brownsville, Texas, now has 36 tanks with 200,000 barrels of space, and truck, railcar and barge-loading capabilities.

June of 2009 welcomed the opening of a new lubricating grease plant at Royal Manufacturing’s subsidiary north of San Antonio. In addition to making mainstream products like lithium complex greases, Wright Oil Co. will produce specialties such as polyurea, calcium sulfonate and aluminum complex greases, and biobased, synthetic and food grade varieties.

I appreciate and understand everyone's concerns, thoughts, and input as a MC rider and factory rep for Royal, I would also like to mention that I've used their products, of course, over the last three years in all my bikes and have had excellent results and better performance than other products I used in the past. Now...that being a little prejudiced as it may seem, Royal products are of the highest quality available in all categories as we are one of the high quality blenders and packagers of other oil companies products including major oil company's, private labels, and independent oil products. Products we make for others can be found on shelves in premium retail outlets. Our products are only sold thru a distributor network and we do not spend extra money on national advertising like the majors and thus are able to sell at a more competitive price. We primarily cater to heavy equipment, industrial, mining, and agricultural type markets but do make premium products also for the automotive/MC markets. We do recognize that a 10/40 MC oil is a high demand oil and are considering adding it to our line as the demand increases.
We recommend that you use the correct weight that your warranty calls for while under warranty, and then you can choose an alternative weight for personal preference, if you so desire, when warranty expires. I personally have used the 15/50 in all my bikes either in or out of warranty and have had excellent results.
I hope this will help answer some of your concerns and we appreciate all your responses regarding our products.
Thanks and safe riding!!

For everyone out there wanting to see the VOA of virgin Royal Mfg. Monarch Super Syn Moto 15W/50 find below the test results from Blackstone Laboratories to geek out on and use for a baseline. Please feel free to contact them directly if you have any doubts about the results, it includes my Client ID for reference. YES, it is the oil you will be getting in your 12 quarts .

Remember 5% of each sale goes to Rocky Mountain Adventure Riders - AMA which in turn route the funds to COHVCO / Trail Preservation Alliance to keep our trails open! I include your Name / Handle with each purchase. As I am able to make this venture turn from Red to Black I will be upping the contribution to 10% of all sales.

Thanks for the interest and support!!
Bern
