    An oil thread is a good way to revitalize interest in the single site again. It always stimulates a good conversation.

    I'm thinking you will not see the words "wet clutch compatible" on the bottle. So be sure and read the specs.

    Also, avoid anything with moly additives. Moly will bond to the clutch plates and then you may as well not have a clutch.

    If you insist on exercising a right to burn our flag, first be so kind as to wrap yourself in it and then douse yourself with gasoline just before you strike the match.

    FWIW the new GSs are sold with synthetic from new and are wet clutch. They do use motorcycle specific oil though (MA2 spec if I recall). It is the racing 4T oil available in the BMW label or at parts stores and other dealers.
