I did not read the whole thread so I hope I'm not repeating something.
It's my understanding zinc will damage CAT converters, so if I have a late model with a CAT will it be okay?

You are correct that Zinc can reach toxic levels for high tech catalyctic converters especially the ones designed for cars that are made to last 150K miles, not so much for bikes. I don't know what you ride but the oil is certified to conform to JASO MA-2 API SL so check your manual and go from there.

I agree this discussion got a bit Zinc crazy but it is all about having a balanced additive package and staying within the manufacturers specifications.

Is the price going to increase with the reformulation? I'd like to pick up a case, and I'm assuming the new stuff will be better, but if there's a big price increase it might be worth it to pick up the old stuff instead.

There will be a bump in price but will also make it available in Gallon containers as well... I think that is the way to go and then if you like it get the case. The old formulation has been discontinued.

Thanks for the question.... I am just waiting for the release of the product at this point.....

Right now just working though my bike from front to back when I can, done front bearings, steering stem bearings, replaced shock fluid, installed HDB handquards and Rox Risers, re-did wiring, need to set valves for the season and then there is the damage... ordered replacement footpeg and some other pieces...the subframe is ok, a little bent. The shift in the rear subframe was really due to the aluminium tab bending 1/2 inch inward due to the impact - I will work this weekend on heating and bending it, it if breaks then need to get the aluminium rewelded.

The broken bones in the hand is healed up and the ligament in thumb ok, a little dumb still but getting there. Separated shoulder is 99% and clavicle ok now....fun stuff - I am hoping end of April, May to get out so you have to hook us up on an evil ride!!

Thanks again for you and Blane's help getting back

As soon as the new formulation is available I am in for a case. I already have two cases of other oil ready to go, but I'll give Royal a shot and also use my Blackstone testing kit when I come back from my summer in Colorado. Huskys need high zddp and combining that with full synthetic is a winner in my book. Up to now it has had to be semi-synthetic to get the zinc levels I want.

Glad to see 10w-40 in the line-up now!
I'll get a gallon of it in a bit and see how my DR650 shifts (a known hard shifter at times) with it. Nice work!

I am going to purchase the new formulated blend here as soon as available.
Ill go the same mileage and send it out to Blackstone as well for a head to head comparo on the 10w40 blend with the thumper/shared gearbox/wet clutch mill.
If it's better, you got my business.
i'm interested in those results too Frank. i'm a Redline and Amsoil user.

Have these gone through any JASO testing?
JASO - MA is what most are expecting to see (and you're hard pressed to convince the cheaper ones who buy Rotella or Rotella T at Walmart) and now that's been augmented by MA1 and MA2
