Just saw this oil on the shelf, albeit $7.99 a qt. Wonder what the dif. is to the 15w50.

From what I've read, the only difference is the viscosity and the price. Apparently, Mobil created these "motorcycle specific" oils to fit the recommended viscosities specified in most owners manuals. I'm guessing that it was a marketing ploy to sell to motorcycle owners that still weren't convinced that the 15w50 SJ auto oil was good enough for their scoots because 1) it didn't say on the bottle that it was motorcylce specific oil and 2) it didn't have a viscosity rating that was mentioned in anyones owners manual. IMO don't waste the extra $$ and stick with the 15w50 which by the way, I just got for 2.95 a qt. at Target! My two scents.
