HPR15,15W-60 I've been using it since it ran out of warranty at about 42,000kms (going on memory, it was a shop demo bike with 8,000kms and 6 months use on it, so I only got 18 months warranty), and I started doing my own servicing.
I had a touch of clutch slip and slight squeal under max power while it was running on genuine oil and shop clutch adjustment, which disappeared on the Penrite. I always thought the Bris Vic shop had the clutch cable too tight after servicing, so run it with a touch more freeplay now.
I know Penrite don't recommend it for motorcycle use, which I think probably translates as wet clutch use, but no clutch problems yet, although it's a pretty standard motor. With cams and a fuel controller it might, but that's not happening soon.
My 1990 1200 Sporty did start clutchslip after cams and an S&S, but running Barnett plates, Screaming Eagle spring and an extra steel plate keeps it coping. It did cop a lot of abuse running 1/8th mile dirt drags for a while, and still has a brass plate off a trophy riveted to the aircleaner "Top Street Bike Aratula 1990".

Cool, I was quite probably at that Aratula, remember the sand drags as part of 3 days of drunken partying and live bands.
Those were the days, got lumbered and breathalysed trying to leave one year and wound up in Ipswich lockup the Boonah courthouse.
Got in the boxing ring on a Sunday morning there one year when Irish was tryna get someone to fight "the Animal"
"Surely someone out there will get knocked out for fifty bucks" he said!
I said " yeah Ill get knocked out for fifty!"
Put my Stones Green Ginger wine bottle down and put on the gloves.....didnt even see the punch, hit the canvas and stayed there.
Got a stubby of Fourex for my brave effort!
Still joke about it today.
Was a couple of different events out there every year back then.
reminiscing......
Yeah I know that HPR 15 just put it in the 455 Buick as well as my ex's 265 Chrysler, good oil for the price.
Ive just put the Vegas on their 20-60 Full Syn MC oil, and the XC on their V-Twin oil, its a bit dearer but I get a good trade price deal off the local Repco shop just up the road.
using Z429 Ryco filters too.

Nice story! If it was Irish trying to get you knocked out for a stubby, you were probably a little bit up the road at Purga Creek. Wrong mob, best not get them confused, even now. But yeah, great memories for sure.
My trophy year at Aratula I climbed up on stage, accepted the trophy, held it up to a crowd of mostly very committed big twin owners and shouted "Sportsters rule!"
Dead silence followed. I then laughed; I had beaten 6 of them to get there, one of them twice; first on his panhead, then again when he came back on his identically painted softtail. I had a dead heat with a big inch shovelhead, no one could pick it. We ran again, and he beat me by by a metre. He took Top Bike, I took Top Street bike.
My mates reckon I was still cuddling the trophy when they found me in the morning.
