Repsol 4T 10w50, who uses it?

I've been thinking about switching from the tri blend Repsol to the full synthetic 10w50 Repsol. Is 10w50 ok to use all year round? Where I live in the winter it never drops below 0 and in the summer the highest temp we will see is 100 degrees (with 99% humidity ). Plus I want to hear from people who use the 4T Racing Repsol 10w50 full syn..

Thanks for your support in advance

p.s I love the search function....

MC,

I run that oil year round in FL. Never really drops below 40 in winter. Well its FL in the summer. It seems to be fine. Not sure your going to notice a huge difference between the blend and the full. Bike seems to shift a little bit better with that oil vs the kaw chem stuff.

I use Elf Moto 4XT synthetic of the same viscosity. It's fine. Repsol isn't seen much in these parts, but it meets the required specifications.


Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!

Same here. Damn good oil. Another really good synthetic oil in standard viscosity, 10W-40, is Mobil MX4T.

If you gotta ask you can't afford it.

Use it religiously since 4K miles (ps dont go full syn on new motor, if dont already know). Repsol is top quality oil.

I've had some WERA racers tell me that they like the Repsol better than the Amsoil, but for the street I'm sure both are top notch.

I've been using the full synth repsol for the last few changes now.... no complaints.

Attack life... it's going to kill you anyway.
