    I was using 10W40 castrol but changed a couple of weeks ago to 15W50 mobil 1 for motorcycles. I've used the bike a bit now and can get neutral much better than before, no more neutral whilst coasting to a stop. the engine seems quieter than before (still like a bag of spannners though)

    As Colin has quoted, there is absolutly nothing wrong with using 10/60 in your Nelli. We use it all the time in all the Benelli's we service.

    Hi Lloyd,

    I can't find a semi synthetic 10w 60 oil.

    My M3 uses the same oil but its fully synthetic...

    Can you advise on the manufacturer of the oil you use?
