            Been using Castrol in all my vehicles for over 20 years now, and have never had any oil related issues. When the wife had a Honda, had our mechanic reset the valves after 150K+ miles, and he said the engine internals still looked brand new.

              I've always changed my own oil, now I change oil for me and my SO. I've always used Castrol. Never had an engine problem, and I drive a 1992 Chevy K1500. Oil change every 4K miles and no problems.

                      Good engine oil, and the placement of the jug handle makes it easy to pour.

                              Hi Biker, glad to assist you! Castrol does not recommend using passenger car motor oils in motorcycles. Please provide us with the details of your application (including the year, make and model of the motorcycle) and I will be happy to provide you with the name of a Castrol product that can be used if available.
