Look on the labe where it says "API service" if it has friction modifiers then you could encounter clutch slippage issues. If it doesn't say anything about modifiers then you are ok.

Their MCV Synthetic Motorcycle oil is much better, because it's capable of living in the transmission better than most oils are (in fact it's also labeled GL-1), but as long as the API service label does NOT say ECII, you should be OK to use it as you would the old Mobil 1 red cap. The only concern would be viscosity shear down.

I figure every 2-3hrs riding time for oil change should be good. No ECII anywhere on the container

Damn, thats a early oil change if you ask me. I usually go 5-6. Or sometimes just every 2 days of riding, depending how much/hard I ride. :crazy:
