Personally I don't have anything bad to say about Repsol oil



It suits my needs as I use the bike as a commuter and long public road riding mostly summer but winter too sometimes.
I get it quite cheap for what it offers to the bike, smooth gearbox and when I change it at about 5,000km it still looks like new.

I know their chain lube is the best I've ever tried.

The only wax I bother with is for my back! Otherwise, it's lube all the way!

My favorite oil for smoothest operation of clutch and engine is Honda HP4S 10W-30. But it runs around $14/qt. I can get Mobile1 4T all the time for around $10. I haven't tried Repsol, yet. I will someday soon...

I typically stay out of oil threads, but I will spout off on this one as I have a lot of experience with Repsol.

The Repsol chain lube is AWESOME

The Repsol engine oil is shit... It works really really good for a very brief amount of time. I mean you can literally feel a difference in the way the transmission shifts etc, but then it falls off very quickly and everything gets clunky again. Great marketing, crappy product.

^ That is probably one of the most informed and experienced opinions on this whole forum.
I probably won't bother with the Repsol Oil now. Thanks LDH.
