ALSO has the throttle stop on the 02 wr's as well.
Does the synthetic or the mobil one oil hurt the wet clutch or any part of the clutch or motor?
i think that does me

I don’t know why, but the 15/50 rated Mobil 1 does not have friction modifiers. Other weights do, so stick w/ 15/50. I think the friction modifiers are denoted with an “EC” designation. Do a search on “Mobil 1” and, if it doesn’t bring the server to a screeching halt, you will have many hundreds of posts on this topic at your fingertips.
That should take care of your boredom.

Last couple of independent test I saw, Mobil 1syn. had the least viscosity breakdown. I change after every three rides, about 12-15 hours. Not because the oil is wearing out but because of the contaminents in the oil.

Their "Experts" work for Maxima, Bel Ray, etc.
Do you honestly think Maxima will defend riders using a (oh-my-God) Mobil 1 15w-50 Red Cap oil at $3.00/qt, or Maxima "Motorcycle Oil" at $7.00/qt?
The retail business is like any other..."Cut Throat Tactics" to protect their investemnt.

In looking at the ratings sheets, I see Mobil MX4T is rated first with Amsoil right behind.

Now I'm sure MX4T is better then 15W-50, but is it 2 times better like it's cost is? I think not!
