Question:
Using Mobil 1 High Mileage 10W-40 in a Low-Mileage Motorcycle
I own a 2005 Suzuki GSX1300R Hayabusa motorcycle that calls for a 10W-40 oil. The Mobil 1 at this viscosity reads, "For high mileage vehicles" on the bottle. My bike only has 400 miles. Is this of any importance or is this good to use for any mileage vehicle?

Answer:
Mobil 1 High Mileage oils can be used in both newer and older vehicles. In newer vehicles, some of the performance additives included for older vehicles will not be needed but they will not cause any problem in newer vehicles. The product you should use in your bike is Mobil 1 Racing 4T 10W-40 specifically designed for motorcycle engines and transmissions.
