One of my <other> vices is motorcycling. Oil quality/content is a
common topic on motorcycle boards. The word from the cycle guys is that
to get a higher zinc content (although I don't know if its as high as it
"used" to be), you need to use "Racing" motor oil, motorcycle oil, or
diesel motor oil (Shell Rotella, etc).
