    Smile Engine oil

    I know Aprilia recommend using 15w/50 spec oil but would it harm the engine if I used a 10w/40 or 10w/50 fully synthetic oil instead, and would this have any effect on oil consumption ?

    Lots of threads to do with this. I asked my manufacturer-approved mech, 10w-40 blend (semi-synthetic) is okay, just change back when the heat comes. I chose Castrol ActEvo.

    My 2007 book says to use 15W-50 semi-synthetic (AGIP).

    Easier starting and no oil consumption noticed.
