Question:
Can Mobil 1 15W-50 be Used in a Kawasaki Motorcycle?
Why can't I run Mobil 1 15W-50 in my Kawasaki 1600 Classic cruiser?
-- David Nelson, Shelburne, VT
Answer:
You can run Mobil 1 15W-50, but if you have a motorcycle with a common sump then you have to worry about transmission clutch performance. Mobil 1 motorcycle oils are specially designed to provide good engine protection while also optimizing friction performance so that clutch slippage is controlled.
