I just need to know this, can I run Mobil 1 15w-50wt full synthetic in my KLR? Let me know, I just picked up 3 quarts last night to do an oil change. If not I'll take it back.
The KLR isn't picky about oil. But remember the oil isn't just the engine, it also does the transmission and clutch. The clutch is why I change the oil often. The clutch is also why I have avoided synthetic oil. I have read enough that the synthetic oil changes the feel of the clutch enough that I am not interested in it.
