      • Q:

        Is the VR1 20W-50 safe and OK to use in a Harley-Davidson motorcycle without an o@ sensor.
        Asked on 6/30/2015 by carboss from Englewood, Florida

        • A:

          This oil works well in a Harley engine...NOT recommended for Tranny or Primary. I use Valvoline Synthetic Gear lube 75/90? in tranny and cheap 15/40 in primary.. Service Eng./Primary every 3000 mi. and tranny every 3 years. My o6 FLHT has over 220,000 miles. Primary side crank bearing failed @ 68k, rebuilt with Timkin bearing set up and cam gear drive....no problems since.

          A:

          I'm happy to answer you, Carboss! Yes, the Valvoline VR1 20W-50 Conventional Racing Oil would be perfect for use in your Harley Davidson. You may use this product or Valvoline 4 Stroke Motor Cycle Oil 20W-50. Both products will work well in your motorcycle.

        I have a 34 Ford with a 454 BB and a blower. Driven very little/ show car. Would VR1 20–50W be a good choice for this application?

      • Q:

        Can the VR1 20W50 oil be used in daily driving apart from race/track usage? Does the oil harm the catalytic converter or motor as the warning reads not for extended usage? How many track days can this oil last without change?
        Asked on 10/3/2014 by Guru from San Jose, CA

        1 answer

        • CUSTOMER CARE

          A:

          Hi Guru, good question! The Valvoline VR1 Racing Oil may be used in city street service driving and track applications. The elevated levels of zinc in this motor oil product can damage oxygen sensors on a catalytic converter for extended use. Valvoline does not set their own oil change standards for motor oil products.

        • CUSTOMER CARE

          A:

          This Valvoline Racing Conventional 20W-50 Motor Oil - part# VV211 is designed for automotive applications and cannot be used for motorcycles as the oil designed for motorcycles has a higher "shear tolerance"...(clings to spinning gears and keeps a coating on meshing gears). And has viscosity stabilizers, and additives to accept and disperse heat much more efficiently than automotive oil.

        What is the ZZDP content?

        • CUSTOMER CARE

          A:

          Valvoline VR1 Racing Oil contains 75% higher zinc than SM motor oil with a balanced additive package designed to work in both racing and street-legal applications. This product will protect older style push-rod and flat tappet engines. Valvoline uses an advanced zinc/phosphorus additive that keeps higher levels of phosphorus in the motor oil where it protects the engine instead of poisoning the catalytic converter.

          A:

          Valvoline does make this oil in different weights that 20W-50 but I do not see them listed online. You may have to go into one of our stores to find the oil in the weight you are looking for.
