Halfords Fully Synthetic 5W/40 Motorcycle Engine Oil for four stroke motorbike engines
 

What is the difference between 5W40 & 10W40 motorcycle oil

My handbook recommmends 10W40 fully synthetic engine oil but yours is 5W40 - will it harm the engine?
10w and 5w refers to the viscosity of the oil at 0C which is the thickness and it's ability to run ie liquid like, a 5w oil will be much thinner than a 10 w oil at low temperatures which could mean that it will not 'stick' to the cylinder walls, load bearing faces etc which could lead to premature wear. I would stick to the manufacturer recommendations if i were you, but this will depend on the make/model of the bike.

Motorcycle engine oil query

My bike (1996 Aprilia Pegaso) requires at least CMC G-4 or API SG standard in 5W/40 oil. Does "Halfords Motorcycle Engine Oil Fully Synthetic 5W/40" match/exceed these?
The halford oil does meet the standard, however i wouldn't recommend a fully synth for a pegaso, can cause clutch slip problems, see some of the aprilia forums for more advice.
