Use of Mobil 1™ in Place of Harley Davidson 20W-50 Oil
I own a 2001 Harley Davidson Sportster 1200cc. I was considering using Mobil 1 synthetic as a replacement to the standard Harley 20W-50 oil. Harley Davidson's service manager advised against that and suggested Mobil 1 was not designed for this type of application and would not provide the proper protection to the engine. Can I safely use Mobil 1 in the motorcycle?

Mobil 1™ V-Twin 20W-50 fully synthetic motorcycle oil is designed specifically for V-twin motorcycle engines like Harley Davidson. This product provides outstanding performance and protection.
