    What are the pros and cons of this oil? I use Spectro in my transmission, and Spectro in the primary, but use Mobile 1 in the engine.

    They are great products. Is the engine oil superior to other products as well?

    This one...

    I would not hesitate to use the Spectro engine oil in my engines. Unfortunately, I can not get the Spectro fluids locally on a regular basis and have to order them on the internet. I can get the Mobil 1 VTwin engine oil much more readily. So I use the combo you are using too: M1 VTwin in the engine, Spectro Primary in the Primary, and Spectro 6-spd in the tranny.

    The Spectro engine oil is on par with the Mobil 1 v twin but the trans oil is far better than others.

    Why pick an engine oil that is hard to find? There isn't a bad oil out there. I have over 106K using dino oil. If the engine were new I would switch to Mobil 1 V Twin that is available at many auto stores.

    Spectro oil is easy to find. If not available locally then try Bob's cycle supply, just google them. They have a good price and the shipping is cheap.

    Too rich for me, I'll stick to M1. That stuff better be good at that price.

    I used Mobil 1 before switching to Spectro and I could tell a difference in shifting, It's only ONE quart for a change.

    That's all I use is Spectro. I know when I'm going to change it so I order it in advance. You can order right from them at Spectro.com. Mine was here the next day, they really do a great job processing orders.
