£25 for 4L of good quality oil seems like a good price to me.

This is simply rebranded Passenger Car Motor Oil (PCMO) with the word 'motorcycle' writ large on the can! This is only for 4 stroke engines so there's absolutely no reason for it to be this expensive.

Not true bikes have generally wet multiplate clutches.These oils are without friction modifierss which may cause clutch slip yes you may get away with it but I wouldn't risk it on my bikes,

I used to develop oils for a living. It's sort of normal practice to develop oil as a bog standard PCMO first (where all the bulk volume sales are) & then tag on a bit of motorcycle testing at the end (eg a JASO friction test) to see if the same stuff can be used for both applications.

I can't say definitively that FMs don't impact on clutch slip as I never studied it in that much detail (in the greater scheme of things, motorcycle cycle oils aren't really that important). However what I can say is that the PCMOs I ran through JASO testing did indeed contain FM and they all passed quite happily!

PS - this just applies to 4-strokes. 2-strokes are a completely different style of oil formulation.

PPS - chances are that if the oil is a 10W30, 10W40, 15W40, 15W50 or 20W50, then it WON'T contain any friction modifier (that specifically targets friction modification) because there's no specific test requirement for it to do so. It MAY contain something else that targets, say oxidation, which just happens to also provide a bit of friction modification but that's about it.

This would be cheaper and you get screen wash for free £21.89. or better still 100 synthetic £24.99 with screen wash

What brand of oil do you use?

I use Petronas Syntium 7000 0W20 in my Suzuki Celerio. It's a fancy name for a fairly ordinary oil. It's a full synthetic (Group III), US style ILSAC GF-5 fuel economy oil for gasoline engines only.

The Suzuki dealer put this stuff in during the car's warranty period. As the car gave astoundingly good fuel economy (on average 70 mpg) & is good for 12,500 miles (in my case over two years), I decided to stick with it. Buy it off eBay from Euro Car Parts & at £18.70 for 5 litres, it's not particularly expensive.

I've been using 0W20s since 2006 and as long as you don't drive like a maniac, they're perfectly serviceable oils.
