New Rotella 4T Semi Syn JASO MA and MA2 15w40Try it and you will like the results about 20$ gallon change at 4000 mi. Try a couple of Oil Analysis. You will be pleasantly surprised.

Believe you mean Rotella T5 for semi Synthetic. See http://rotella.shell.com/products.html Believe all their products are Jaso MA1 and MA2. I've used the full Syn T6 for years in all my bikes. 107K miles on my Yamaha RSTD V-4. Anxious to see if their latest products will offer noticeable improvement.

No I really Mean "Rotella T4", it is new and is an improvement to "Semi Syn" over the old "Triple T"and It is JASO MA and MA2. Only Rotella Triple T, T4 and T6 have JASO MA ratings. Still very reasonable prices around $20 per four qts. Check it Out!
