Any had problem using Motul 5100 10W40 engine oil?
I always use this oil in all my bikes but I found that after 3-4 oil change, special on my last two bike (ZZR1200 and the ZX-10R) that I sometimes get difficulty in downshifting...as if the gears, or plate or fork or wathever in the transmission get's kindda stuck.
Often it's getting to a complete stop when you clutch and downshift more then on gear...it just wont go more then one at the time if I don't relase the clutch between gears.
It' a bit of a nuisance on the street...but since I'm going to do more track days...I wouldn't want to miss a shift or catch a 'false' neutral on the track.
So anyone had that problem...any suggestion on engine oil...
