Just curious to see if anyone has used Mobile One Gold Cap for a while. If so how is the bike running and does your clutch operate normally. I still have 2 gallons of Red Cap but it will be gone here pretty soon. I read on another thread that Gold Cap is almost identical to Red Cap in chemical compound. I hope the oils perform the same because I like the Red Cap, too bad it is discontinued. :applause:

They are the same oil. Scroll through the link below to the analysis. If you didn't have any problems with the red cap you won't have any with the gold cap, the moly content in both oils is the same. I have started using the gold cap as a "top off" oil (mixed with red cap). Before anyone starts spouting the evils of mixing oils I feel completely comfortable with the analysis results that they are the same oil.
