I know Mercury Marine has been selling their Quicksilver brand of oils for years and dealing with the smaller displacement marine 2 and 4 strokes
has probably given them some good insight into what additive packages to use to make their oils work right.
Does anyone have any experience with using their 20-50 synthetic in the Harley V-twin engines like the 883 and 1200 Sportsters?

Engine oil in the Sportsters is separate from tranny and clutch oil.

The oil is rated at JASO MA/MA2.

I have used the synthetics and semi-synthetic for years in my personal 4 wheel vehicles, including a turbocharged 1835 T1 VW running a dry sump in the dunes, but haven't tried it yet in the 2 wheelers.

Any thoughts or comments would be appreciated.

I used it in my Triumph. It's a water cooled parallel twin so not much similarty but it performed well. Shifted nice and is still nice dark gold after a year and half. I don't put alot of miles on.
I d use it again but I got a good buy on Royal Purple.
Good oil in my opinion.
