Hello Everybody.

Castrol sells a four stroke motorcycle oil, labelled 4T, 20w/50, API SH, SG.

I found it at Pep Boys in 1 liter and 4 liter bottles, around $20 for the 5
There was nothing at local NAPA stores that was SH or SG rated.

   Talking to the engine Guru and proprietor of the local NAPA store the
other day.  Got to talking about oils for our old engines.  I mentioned
that it looked like I had a choice between synthetic or Rotella for my
'69 B.  He showed me some "motorcycle spec" oil for 4-stroke
motorcycles.  Can't remember the brand but it's a racing oil that he
says has the % of zinc additive we need.  It also comes in 20W-50
multi-vis, which is what the GTX I've always run is.  Kind of expensive
a@ ~$6 a quart but what ain't?

   Any comments?
