    I'm sure this topic has been beat to death but i'm new to the forum and I value your opinions.
    I used 20/50 mobil 1 in my metric bike but now that I own a real 1 i've been using 20/50 HD regular oil.

    I've been thinking about going back to the Mobil 1. What's your opinon good or bad idea.

    Thanks for the input,

    Lawman.

    Lots of happy Mobil 1 customers on this forum. It's even on sale at at Advance Auto Parts for $7.99 as Redfish-Joe was kind enough to post. Great choice IMO.

    Just to make sure we are talking about Mobil 1 20w50 V-twin oil? Not the car 20w50 but the v-twin oil. That's what I use and very happy with it.

    My only issue is I have 27000 miles on the bike and it's alway's had 20-50 Harley oil. I now want to change to synthetic, does anyone see an issue?

    Any decent oil that meets the JASO-MA SPEC will do just fine. Just meet your service intervals and check your oil level on a regular basis.
