I'd be curious about the oil's TBN, as well. I geuss mostly because I'm a bit of a nerd

Are the Monarch oils true PAO synthetics? Given the price, it would be a great bargain if they were!! I'd love to try it in my KLR, or my 80K mile, 30 years old Suzuki GS1100EZ, for that matter.

Sure thing I have already requested the MSDS and the TBN's from their lab which is Riverside Laboratories

Here is the top section of the Product Data Sheet and YES this is a bargain. You can buy the rebranded stuff for double if you want
