Here's my experience with Mobil 1. I decided to start using it in my last Honda motorcycle after about 40,000 miles. The bike definitely started shifting smoother and easier, and it seemed to run smoother (but that could have been an illusion).billy said:With everything said is mobile one 15-50 red cap safe to use in your wing?
It was a 1990 Honda. I'm not blaming the Mobil 1... but the timing of when the gaskets started "sweating" oil was quite a coincidence.03orangepeel said:mrgl02 What year was the Honda that you put Mobil One into that caused it to leak oil around gaskets. I've read that the gaskets in older motors would leak with synthetic oils. If I remember correctly, somewher around 1980 companies changed the gasket compounds to be compatible with synthetic oils. I ran Mobil One in my 1993 GL1500 for 130K miles and the motor was always dry.
