Has anyone used it? My guess is it must be pretty new since I've never seen it come up in MC oil threads. The full synthetic looked to be $8.xx per quart of I recall. I can't remember if I saw a conventional version...

I'm trying to pick my next oil for the 14 VStrom 1000. I've used Delvac 1300 for around 7000 miles and I liked it. If I recall I believe I've read about HDEOs such as Delvac and Delo changing their recipes and certs which has me a little concerned about continuing to use the Delvac. I like SOPUS products so I might try the new T6 15w40 I saw at Walmart the other day or try Mobil 1 15w-50.

I live in Michigan but won't put the Strom on the road until temps are in the high forties and salt is off the roads. My DR650 is my early/late season bike as I'm not as worried about salt getting on it and that gets full synthetic 10w40.

Crazy thing is you can get Valvoline 10W-40 or 20W-50 full synthetic motorcycle from Walmart cheaper, with free ship to store. For now ....

Actually I went there because the website said my store had Valvoline full syn but I didn't see it and grabbed the Mobil 1 4T for the DR instead. At that price it's hard not to get the Valvoline for less or Mobil 1 for a little more.

I tried Delvac in my DR but the shifting felt like crap, noticably. Delvac feels fine in my Strom and bc the wife's CTX.

Also, I don't know how good it is, but my Walmart will match Walmart.com pricing on in stock Quicksilver oil. The ad says off road, but the picture/bottle shows motorcycle oil. I did buy (1) quart for $5.50 but haven't used it yet. FYI ...

they seem to be expanding their offerings, hopefully they will bring the euro spec 5-40 for cars, available in canada. if the price is right its worth a try. like amazon basics without a lot of costly approvals the oil can sell cheaper or use better ingredients

Its in the sump and gearbox of my Zuma 125 commuter scooter right now.

Seems to be doing the job. I do 1k mile oil changes with 90% stop go city riding so it may be in the sump until early summer.

Short term, it sounds a little rougher then the Castrol MC 10w-40 synthetic I dumped but time will tell.

Hmmm. Never heard of Quicksilver oil, I'll have to look into it. Is it good stuff?

Yes, it is excellent.

Quicksilver has always been a brand of Mercury Marine

Quicksilver = Mercury........ Get it?

Just got back from my local Wal-Mart. They still have the Quicksilver full syn 10w-40 at $7.98/quart, while some Wal-Marts have it on clearance at $3/qt. I be watching...

To be honest, no! Haha. I'm not a boater or fisherman, nor do I know much of Mercury's history. But, the little research I've done shows that it's a we'll respected oil.

I just bought some some new Rotella T6 15w40 to try. So far it sloshes good in the jug and looks like honey. grin2

Was at another Wal-Mart and bought the last two Quicksilver 10w-40 m/c oils at $3/qt. The M1 on clearance was gone. Must .... stop ... buying ...oil.

It's weird how oil can become somewhat of an obsession.

I'll keep the Quicksilver in mind because I have plenty of motorcycles that need oil. I'm intrigued.

Yep, nothing runs better in my honda then the Quicksilver 20w-50. I just dont like the idea of running it during sub 40 degree mornings.

Since scooters don't have wet clutches, you're aware that there's no sense in buying motorcycle specific oils, right? I'd actually believe that the regular energy conserving oils with friction modifiers would be BETTER for scooters.
