Is Mobil 1 Suitable for a BMW Motorcycle?
There is always lively debate on BMW motorcycle message boards regarding which brand and weight of motor oil should be used. Can you recommend Mobil 1 motor oil for a 2003 BMW K1200GT? BMW recommends an HD oil with API classification SF, SG, or SH. Bike has separate gearbox (SAE 90 GL5), and is ridden generally above 45°F with oil changes every 6000 miles? Thanks!
