oils

I was told that the Delo 400 oil and/or the Rotella oil will work well in the vulcan 900
Anyone have info on this?

Personally I prefer something that is motorcycle specific.

However, anything that carries the JASO-MO rating will work. Rotella 15W-40 synthetic does, among others. The JASO-MA rating, among other things, means that it's safe for the wet clutch, where other oils could cause issues with the wet clutch. All motorcycle specific oils are also approved for wet-clutch use. As nearly all motorcycles use a wet clutch (save for an odd Ducatti!)

The things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most. People are good; honor, courage, virtue mean everything; power and money mean nothing; good always triumphs over evil; true love never dies. A man should believe in those things, because they are worth believing in.

Small world! my wife still has family in Throggs Neck, just over the bridge just off of E. Tremont Ave. I've had a fun night or two at the beach clubs over there.

I grew up in East New York, Brooklyn... before I became the homicide capitol of NYC. The 75th precinct.
