NO... Bike oil is used for Motor and transmission. It has different agents for lubrication.

Mobil one does make bike oil. It has a T designation in the weight I believe. You can get it at british USA. My triumph came stock with mobil one.

This is an age old debate. Most car oils are probably ok.

Auto oil has detergents that make clutches slip

lol this thread is hilarious and to the guys that think motor oil is fine in bikes yall really crack me up. must be pretty wealthy and like throwing money away, might not cause problems right away, but your doing alot of damage that could be prevented. i will leave it at that. oil is cheap. motors are not.

Yeah, I mean you could run canola oil through your engine and it will lubricate it. But the design of oil is to protect your engine. I just couldn't see running anything but something DESIGNED specifically for a motorcycle.

The main concern of non moto specific oil seems to be the clutch and not the motor. So why all the talk of tearing up motors? I have several hundred 1/4 mile passes on syn. Motor oil. I'm still on the original stock clutch.

X2 but ive been through a couple clutches, A Hays Clutch will do that though...

I run Mobil 1 Red Cap 15w50, motor actually shifts smoother with this oil, but I also change my oil every other race weekend, so i prob only get maybe the equivalent of 20 street miles out of it between changes.

Run whatever makes you comfortable and make sure to CHANGE YOUR OIL!!! Not changing your oil, regardless of whether you run bike or car oil, will do more damage than anything else

The clutch would be my only concern as well. . .I think some people just like to watch their post count rise 1 post at a time, especially with nonspecific responses like those posted above. I worked in the MC industry for several years and have been involved with various forms of racing the majority of my life. . .oil related engine failure is almost unheard of these days.
