I know this may sound a little odd as i have not been a member for more than a day now, but i have tested alot of oils in my 4-stroke mxr's (aka YZ426, YZ250f, and RMZ250) and ran pretty much every motorcycle, and automotive specific oil in them. I had alot of sucess from mobil one synthetic and Amsoil synthetic, and was actually content with sticking to amsoil untill my place of employment stopped stocking it. I was then introduced to a French oil called MOTUL and used a full synthetic named E-tech. I was extremely happy with the oil, my clutches lasted wayyyyyyy longer and topends too. i asked the MOTUL rep if they made a automotive oil and he said yes, and claimed that MOTUL was what factory ferarri runs (which i have not verified). Unfortunetly the oil only comes in 5, 15 and 54 gallon quantities and is a little on the expensive side 11.63 a litre in the 5 gal can. (that price is at cost too) But at this point i am extremely pleased with the oil and will most likely never go back to anything else, unless my place of emloyment stops being a MOTUL dealer....which isn't going to happen if i have something to say about it . ok.........im done now.
