Yes, I've been using their full synthetic 15W-50, manufactured for NAPA by Valvoline, for some time now. It's non-energy conserving, no clutch slippage, performs well in my Wing and my Valkyrie. I'd grab some, especially at that price.I noticed that NAPA has a sale on their synthetic oil (all weights) for $3.50/qt. until the end of the month. I have used this oil on my car but never on a bike. Anyone have experience with this oil in a Goldwing.
A way of saying that this url with moly additive causes less friction in the engine and therefore you burn less fuel per mile.
...and, therefore, should not be used in a motorcycle with a wet clutch, like the Goldwing.Advertising......go green and save fuel. Sales tactics.
Why even take the chance for a couple of bucks. People right here on this board have used it and ended up with slipping clutches. Others say they have used it with no problem. Which group do you think you would fall in? I know which group I would end up in. Use some uncommon sense.found this from a few years back. look at #15.http://gl1800riders.com/forums/showthread.php?295725-Simple-Oil-Question
I was discussing the topic of oil with the service manager at my Honda shop. He said to avoid synthetics, they had a few bikes come in with problems switching into reverse. They called Honda tech rep and the first thing he asked was if the bike had synthetic in it. Turned out it did & once they swapped it back to Dino oil...the problem went away. I think I'm going to stick to the Dino stuff. Rotella is a great oil and is JASO certified. My 1st gen Vmax didn't like synthetic oil either...made the shifts very clunky & hard to find neutral...stuck Rotella in it and shifted like butter.
I'm not calling BS, although it is. What I am doing is making a note to self to never listen to another word from this source. I've found that if any part is BS, it all is....lolSorry, I'm calling BS, not on you, but the "service manager you talked to. Im trying to imagine what synthetic or any oil has to do with the ability to "switch" into reverse. My imagination is just not good enough.
