Local Wally world has Rotella 6t Synthetic for $17.50/gal but it's 5w-40. Is that too thin to run? MOM says 10w-40 around here.

That's fine. The lower number signifies less resistance to the engine spinning over in colder weather. I use that in my Mean Streak.

I've been using that in my 97 1500 Classic for a while now. Works great! only thing now it's $33 here at my local Wally World.

$33? Obviously they'll use the oil spill excuse to jack up their price to fill their greedy pockets.

That's what I run in the bike and cages. If we have another really hot summer this year I'll go to the 50W but the 40 is fine around here, usually.
