Joel,
Check Mobil 1's web sight under their motorcycle oils for "where can I find".
Our local AutoZone sell MX4T for $7.99/quart. Call first, because all the other locations indicated by Mobil don't stock it (probably too expensive to sell).
The mobil representative indicated the new SL rated 15w-50 "will not be as good as" the old SJ rated for motorcycles, but didn't specify why. :)

Thanks for the info.
As far as the seat goes, I'll get the stock seat out tonight and see if I can detect which is softer. I'll let you know tomorrow.

Using Spectro 4 for 1-1/2 years now. Changed every 100-150 miles. I ride club enduros and varied fast trail riding. I use the clutch often in tight sections and steep hills when needed, so I change oil fairly regularly. No oil related problems, and no additives whatsoever. Maybe I'm lucky, but this thing has been stone reliable for me despite minimal care and feeding. Knock on wood.
