Arn't there additives and stuff that are in bike oil for wet clutches?Doc said:Or you if you haven't switched to synthetic, you could put in some Mobil 1 15w50. Just head to Wal-Mart or an auto store and pick some up. My Yamaha shifts so much more smoother with the stuff. Just be sure you have over 2000 miles on the bike, to be safe.
It's in Joliet. I don't have the address off hand. Somewhere on Van Buren street. Don't use the Mobil one unless it's the European version. It doesn't protect as well and you'll go through clutches more often.Y2KR1 said:

Nope,YZFRabbit said:Anyone see any place around that stocks the Mobil 1 motorcycle specific oil?
hmm, saw this on another board.Doc said:Mobil 1 15w50 doesn't have the additives to make it energy conserving. If it says energy conserving in the circle on the back of the bottle, it will have friction modifiers in there and your clutch will begin to slip. Basically, anything 10w and lower will have the friction modifiers in it unless it is motorcycle specific oil.
Wal-mart does sell it and I know of dozens of guys that use it and road race w/ it in their R6s. You wouldn't think you could get it there, but you can. It's usually there because most people don't put 15w50 in their cars and it's a full synthetic.
If Motul semi-synthetic was easy to find down here I would go that route, but I haven't seen any. I've heard nothing but great things about it.
