Re: Any long-term Rotella T6 users....thoughts..?
It's very good oil, and as mentioned, JASO rated for power sports use.
You'll want to adhere to the recommendations in your manual regarding viscosity and temperature. Make sure that 5W-40 is going to work for your climate.
Rotella has had reduced zinc in all their oils for several years now, but it's not enough to make a difference for this application.
As far as I know, Wix filters are as good as ever.
My ZTR is about to roll over 600 hours with nothing but dino SAE 30. It's easy to overthink, but all oils are required to pass the same standards, and we're not dealing with F1 cars here. Keep it simple.
