Hi all , I just had a new back tyre put on my piaggio 125 Fly, I asked them to change the engine oil and they used 10w40 , when on the engine case it says 5w40 is this going to make any difference at all??

The slightly heavier viscosity will probably reduce your fuel mileage by about one tenth of one percent. If you happen to be in an arctic climate, you may find it cranking at a slower rate at sub zero temperatures on the first start of the day.

Quite - assuming you are talking about similar fully-synthetic lubricants.
