What Kind Of Oil Does The TaoTao TBR7 Take? – FAQ

For my TBR7 motorcycle, I only use motorcycle-rated wet-clutch certified(JASO MA or MA2) 15w40 oil.

If you were interested in the actual product I use, it’s the Shell Rotella T6 oil. I buy these in-gallon jugs to save money and make sure I have a good oil supply for quick oil changes( What Is The TaoTao TBR7’s Oil Capacity? – FAQ ).

Note: During the break-in period of the TBR7 motorcycle, I used the conventional version of the Shell Rotella oil, T4. After the break-in period, I now use Shell Rotella T6, a fully synthetic version of oil.

Just Me…Newly Licensed.

Hi I’m Tom, A New Motorcycle Rider and Blog Author.

I am a new rider(Pa Learners Permit at the end of 2020, and I received a Pa Motorcycle License in 2021 after passing a Motorcycle Safety Course).

I bought my first motorcycle, a TaoTao TBR7, at the beginning of 2021 and have been doing upgrades on that motorcycle since.

I added to my motorcycle collection by buying a Boom Vader Gen 2 in 2022, and that Grom-Clone motorcycle has been upgraded by me as well.

I continue to ride my Boom Vader Gen 2 motorcycle as well as my TaoTao TBR7 dual-sport bike.

Fun Fact: I’ve only been on one group ride.
