I often look for 20w50 whenever I'm out and about, and today I came across something I've never seen before.
Quicksilver, the people who I usually associate with marine lubricants is selling a 20w50 for motorcycles.
It's fully synthetic and is only $22 from Walmart.
Anyone out there using this?

Here's the SDS sheet on it:

Why would you consider using this particular oil over others?

Our cars don't have wet clutches. (at least not planned)

A truly magical product. They can get someone to pay $22 a qt. Amzoil wants $13.15 for theirs.

Gallon, OK, my mistake. Really cheap then.

You don't always get what you pay for, but you rarely get something without paying for it.

Castrol makes a similar oil, called 20W50 4T. Same application. Has a better detergent package and contains more ZDDP. I've been using it for several years in my Honda VT700c bike as well as my `67 supercharged B. It even increased my oil pressure by 5 psi across the board. RAY

LOL
Clay,
Some do get wet!

The label says it works with wet clutches. Some bikes, like Harley have wet clutches that uses 20w50, so the label is saying you can use it in the primary drive and the engine. HD sells a 20w50 that goes in all three oil filled parts.

And it is $22 per gallon, not quart. Harley oil is $9+ per quart.

The mgb overdrive is wet clutch
Won't do any better in either engine or od than the cheaper GTX at 16bucks for 5 quarts jug.
