When will I know if I've been using the wrong oil? I'm at 265K miles. Half of those miles have been 5/40 Rotella and the other half Mobil 1 15/50. I like the Mobil 1, 5 qt containers better and its often cheaper.

OBVIOUSLY, someone has been putting "motorcycle oil" in those Rotella/Mobil 1 bottles you've been buying. Lucky you! Carry on, all is good.

Sorry to break it to you, but you're in big trouble mister. You'll find out when you get to 500,000 miles.

43 years of year round riding with whatever oil is the least expensive at the time with lots of bouncing off the limiter and clutchless shifting.

It's only a matter of time
