Default Can I use Mobil 1 V-Twin Fully Synthetic 20:50?

Yes. An oil thread...

Thing is, I've got quite a lot of this Mobil 1 V-Twin fully synthetic lying around (used to use it in the Harley). Manual calls for semi-synthetic 20:40. The Mobil is 20:50 and fully synthetic.

Thanks.

As long as it is JASO approved, this is for the wet clutch. Wrong oil will F#CK your clutch......

Oil is oil and everybody has an opinion about it. If you are concerned then follow your owners manual. If not then just make sure the oil can be used in bikes with a wet clutch.

No, it *may* cause a clutch to slip. Harleys have a wet clutch so if the oil worked for it it should certainly work for the Victory. The oils to avoid are those that have "friction modifiers."

There are several JASO specs. This is the one I believe you are referring to:

JASO MA
Japanese standard for special oil which can be used in 4-stroke motorcycle engine with one oil system for engine, gearbox and wet clutch system. Fluid is non-friction modified.

Thanks for the replies.

Got a bottle of the Mobil V-Twin here. Says JASO MA so I'm guessing it's fine for the wet clutch.

Thanks again.

Should be fine, ran the same stuff in my suzuki for years and made it shift much better. May do the same for your Vic.

And don't worry about JASO MA vs. JASO MA2. They are both fine for wet clutches. One is a bit better for the catalytic converters hence the environment but both are pretty close in their composition. Just stick with the MA designator overall until it eventually changes to MB or whatever?
