    I wonder why all of ours (mine included when I get it posted up) show significantly higher levels of molybdenum then the universal averages..?

    I tried a thread like this a while ago but nobody contributed

    Nice to see more people doing this now with our cars. The higher moly count can be due to comparing different oild (it's an anti-wear additive so some use more in their blend).

    Found this site to be very informative for anyone to check out: http://www.calsci.com/motorcycleinfo/Oils1.html

    Another component is emergency lubricants. This is typically zinc, phosphorous, and [b]molybdenum. These chemicals are present in case your oil film completely breaks down, due to extreme temperatures or pressures. These chemicals are supposed to be a last resort defense against metal to metal contact in your engine. Oil companies are cutting back on zinc and phosphorous, as these metals are hard on your catalytic converters. They're substituting molybdenum disulfide, which lowers friction and improves gas mileage. It also causes problems for people with wet clutches, that is most motorcycles.

    Great article. Up to date and informative. It convinced me to try the Rotella, picked up the T6 synth today at Walmart, 19.50 a gallon. I have a Blackstone kit and will be sending in a sample soon.
