A lot of people tend to forget that while the cost of the item might be 40-60% of retail, once they factor in overhead like salaries, the lease etc., the actual profit margin on an item is really only 5-10%. All you have to do is look up a major comp

There were three schools of thought on this: one held that no moly was best,another that a little is ok (like you)and the last believed no limit on moly-it was all good. Take your pick but I would think Ford can be trusted over internet experts.

It states that it can be used in 4t motorcycles. If I could find it at a decent price I'd give it a try as a summer oil. Fat chance though. Has a pretty respectabale pour point of -45 C., for a 5-60.
