How you found us: some guy at the IBM credit union told me about it
           
I bought like 200$ of the motorcycle stuff for 8$ a quart at advanced auto
I imagine it's in reality fine but they recommend not to run car stuff in bikes with wet clutches.. something about it eating up the clutch but in reality most sport bikers probably eat their clutches up before 100 or 200k miles anyway

yuh tug!

Most oil that is used in cars has friction modifiers in it, and it could cause the clutch disks to slip.

8 bucks a quart is a good deal for mobil1 motorcyle full synth.

I used to run Mobil syn in my Z28. Got better gas mileage and have been using it since. I won't run syn in the RR. Uses to much oil in between oil changes


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

They pretty much carry it wherever they have mobil 1 products. It says "European Car Blend" on the front.
