As I recall, Your air cooled boxer has an oci of 6K. I wouldn't recommend going much past that. Even the best oil is going to start to shear and deplete the additives somewhere around 4-5K miles... especially in an air cooled engine. Plus, why al

I've never used Motul so can't comment on that but I was please with Gulf from Opie. Either of them will be more than adequate so it's more about personal preference or brand loyalty in my eyes.
