I don't think you would want to put any of these oils in your MT?

Fully synthetic in an MT is not advised. Can make clutch slip.

Great value if you have a car that needs it though

From Euros, I use Shell Helix 15/40 multi-grade. I have never had any problems with it. It is mineral oil

10/40 W is a multigrade
Presumably you mean mineral (also a multigrade )

This topic has been discussed before , from memory Minter says he uses fully synthetic for race use only and semi synthetic for normal use.

We use fully synthetic in the race bikes with no problems at all and semi synthetics for everyday use now. They are motorcycle specific oils for wet clutches which makes a difference as car oils don't need to work wet clutches! There is a bit of a science to oils now a days which I found fascinating!

Both types in stock.. once you've used a motorcycle specific oil I don't think you'd ever go back!

You've a good memory Eric! Yes and the spec for both is 15w50 - helps quieten the mechanical noises of the Rotax! Providing your tappets are adjusted correctly!
