2007 Repsol oil question

Just picked up my Repsol 1000rr today, and I was reading through the owner's manual and had a question.

Unlike my F4i and 954rr, this bike wants 10W-30 motor oil. I have been using Repsol 4T full synthetic 10W-50 in my 954rr.

Will that be too heavy and maybe even sap a HP or two, or can I continue using that when I get to my first oil change(which I do really early to get the crud from the breakin out of there)?

I live in Atlanta where it gets pretty damned hot, so is that 10W-50 ok to use, or should I try and find another good 10W-30 synthetic?

There are plenty of 10W-40's to choose from, but not a lot of 10W-30...

Your thoughts?

While I'll be interested to hear the answer to this (sorry I don't have an answer for you) I would like to know what kind of oil (and weight) that you used in your F4i

I used either Mobil1 MX4T in the F4i, and Repsol 10W-50 in the 954rr.

Re: 2007 Repsol oil question

it's funny how what the manual recommends, Honda for once doesn't provide. their list of oils doesn't include a 10w30.

Re: 2007 Repsol oil question

Yea, I've never seen a 10w30 recommended. Hmm... being you're from GA, and you're temps don't dip into the 0's you should be fine running 10w40 and all the available oils are great. I'm sure there's even a Repsol 4T Moto 10w40 waiting for you at your local bike shop.
