My Ecomodder stickers showed up! One set went without incident, the other had some of the adhesive paper tear and threaten to leave behind the paper, but I approached from another angle and it came off cleanly.

Looking good!

I just have to remember not to scrape this one off when de-icing.

T6 does shear down, but you want a lower viscosity oil anyway. Shear doesn't cause engine damage. Low ZDDP levels cause damage. I don't run T6 in my SV because the shifting isn't as smooth after the oil shears. The cost of 3 quarts of oil is not a major concern for me.

As far as the clutch not slipping, maybe it will and maybe it won't, but it takes time for the Moly to build-up on the clutch plates and cause slipping.

Want 15 - 20% better highway mileage? Cruise closer to 65 than 75.
I was referring to shear as the ability of the oil to keep metal parts separated, not the decline in viscosity. Also, when I referenced 75 MPH above, that would be indicated, which is 10% optimistic. The tachometer is also optimistic, even more optimistic than if the speedo were dead on.(on a stock geared bike that is..)
Cruising speeds are not up to me, as I usually don't lead except for in the twisties, but we also aren't going 75 mph. Its usually around 65-70.
