will the oil i use in my R6 (motul semi synthetic 5100 ester SAE 10W-40 API SL / SJ / SH / SG) be ok to use in my bmw g450x? i buy this in bulk for the yam so would be handy if i could use my new bike also as ive got gallons of the stuff.

the bmw manual calls for 10w-40 API SF to SH

its this API rating thats confusing me as every guide can find states API SF and SG as obsolete.

cheers

The oil you have meets or exceeds the standards for SL / SJ / SH / SG grades.
The fact SG and SH grades are obsolete is by the by. The Oil still meets or exceeds them.

The fact BMW recommend obsolete grades is interesting tho.
