Hey folks, new member, not new rider, I've been a committed Motul 300V user for some decades now (mainly Japanese inline 4's), so this isn't a question of which oil is better . . . I have two different questions, The new R1250GSA that I just now have, uses BMW oil of course and I'm well acquainted with the BMW perspective on their oil and why it's best for their bikes, and I even understand some of their rationale, But . . . I've had such good results with 300V even though it costs more, part of me really still wants to use it long term in Kozel (my new boxer - all front-end large, and narrow hips, just like my goat bucks!) So, I'm sure some people can comment on the current ability/inability of BMW to withhold warranty coverage if I don't use their branded oil, and secondly, can anyone say what their experience of Motul 300V (correct grade) has been in a recent model boxer 12xx engine? I've also been pretty happy with the US Redline oil which, base stock wise, seems fairly similar (polyol ester), so could include this oil in my two questions too . . . cheers folks! glad yer all here!
