Mobil 1 is safe for any engine, and most tech writers for motorcycle magazines promote the use of synthetics. Mobil 1 redcap you are speaking of is a full synthetic. Blends are half synthetic and half conventional oil. I personally have been using Mobil 1 15w 50 in every vehicle I've owned since 1991, and wouln't use anyting else!!!! I used it in my '92 FZR600 after break in and every oil change after that until I traded it for my R6 this year. And as soon as my six is ready for next oil change it will get Mobil 1 in it....

one thing i must say if you buy any oil. make sure it doesnt have a that on the back the little circular label doesnt say energy conserving on it. if it does DO NOT BUY IT. this type of oil has some additives that will mess up your clutch. :cheers
