    About Motor Oil

    Here's an article just with general knowledge ...

    Ford Issues Engine Oil Spec

    ... and here's a quote from the UK BMW Motorrad website ...

    BMW recommend Castrol oils as they are co-engineered with our BMW motorcycle engineers.
    This at Which oil and why?

    The connection is fairly easy to make.

    And personally, I'd ignore anything related to this topic from BMW NA.

    Oh goodie - an oil thread.

    I've run Mobil 1 almost exclusively in my BMW motorcycles for over 400,000 miles since 1993.

    I've never had any engine related failures.

    And personally, I'd ignore anything related to this topic from BMW NA.
    So would I.
