mobil 1

Great oil for your truck NOT for your bike. Use only "V-Twin Mobil 1 20w50" in your bike.

Why not good , an other old oil debate. I did use that oil in my motocycles for a total of 100k miles without issues so why not.

Why not ??

I used and I know many others who have used the Mobil 1 15-50 for a long time . I had many fantastic oil analysis' with that oil in my bikes .. They will tell you this or that was left out and is needed for the bikes , but whatever they left out is more expensive than gold or unobtanium considering the price difference .. And if you change the oil when you are sposed to , it wont matter .. Too many peeps and too many high mileage bikes with automobile oil only out there to dis prove that tale

Only real difference is the label ..

It's not that the 15-50 is bad , the V twin oil is just better. Read up and be your own judge.

If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.

I already did read on this and oil is like religion zillion of opinion and no one could prove an engine failiure due to engine oil and im not in the band wagon of specilized oil. My 2 cents.

I would think that anyone who would insist on running "V-twin" oil would already be running "Harley Davidson" oil??

Here's a shock...there is NO such thing as an oil additive exclusive to motorcycles.

There is no such thing as a motorcycle oil. You can come up with testing parameters and test them as such, but in real terms, there is nothing that differentiates an oil as a motorcycle oil.
