Would a 5w40 synthetic oil cause any problems when used in the 'Wing? I got some Shell Rotella T (blue bottle) before I realized it's not mentioned in the manual to use that weight.

Tom Wilson has used that very oil in his bike for over 150,000 miles; he has well over 200,000 on the clock.
Another board member just traded his 190,000-mile bike in; yup, it was fed 5w-40 Rotella T from the blue bottle.
I use it too.

That's great to hear then! Before I read these responses I tried to go back and find a 10w40 or 15w40 and couldn't. Both Walmarts didn't have it and neither did the Target or PepBoys. I feel better now, thanks!

Sunday for us. Toyo too, I think.
Weather lady says it will be pretty harsh out though --- 71 degrees and partly cloudy... :wink:
