Re: Correct Oil for 2010 r1200rt
OK, the engine has a new head/valve train but otherwise what is different from the 05-09 RT? Not much, and they recommended the old wait 6K miles, then go synthetic, 20W-50 in summer and lighter grade in cold. I followed this and my 07 RT seems to be getting more comfortable with itself now over 30K miles, it runs better except for the annoying software imposed "anti Knock" lag when upshifting.
