After blowing the tits out of my clutch ive found out that Rekluse recommends Shell Rottela T Heavy Duty Diesel Engine Oil 15W-40. After researching some more this oil seems to be used quite widely in motorcycle engines. Unfortunately Rottella can only be found in the United States of America! boooo. I had a trip round to the local Shell Station and they had in stock the below products.
900 Baht for 6 Liters
650 Baht for 6 Liters
Fully Synthetic 2,400 Bath for 6 Liters
In Australia particularly this question is asked a lot, and there seems to be conflicting views whether its the same stuff. I had the wife phone Shell Thailand but they were none the wiser as usual.
So anyone had any experiences with using Diesel Oils with your motorcycle, specifically Shell Rimula X??? or seen any Rottella T anywhere
I have also found out that its quite common for Yamaha OEM clutch friction disks to fail with Rekluse clutches. The move to Hinston or Rekluse items hopefully will prevent it happening again in future, hopefully!
Shell Rimula X
