oil in 456

just wondering whether you can use motorcycle oil in the 456. I have a significant amount of motorex racing synthetic 0w40 remaining from my road racing days...

Unless there is something weird about the oil, 456s and 456Ms work fine on 0W-40 synthetic oil. Latest recommendation is for 5W-40 or 0W-40 synthetic oil.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.

i was wondering whether the "friction enhancers" that they add for wet clutch application would be an issue. altho the oil is still designed to lubricate a highly strung motor...

If there is any question about strange stuff in that oil, I would just use a regular synthetic 5W-40.
