I was reading the manual regarding engine oil type. It requires SJ or JASO MA2. Well, Rotella T6 meets the specifications.

any good synthetic oil will work. you need to consider the ambient temperature. if it is cold, use 10w40. if it is hot, use 15w50. bmw wants to make money by selling 'their' oil... i had the same issues with Triumph, Tiger 800. they were enforcing me to put a wrong type of oil, disregarding that I lived in cold climate... just remember, the first number relates to cold starting, the second one, to hot running...
porth and G0MYW like this.

as you love riding, you need to love you bike
