If it was good for engine longevity, BMW would add it. I wouldn't.

It's not. Period. Use the recommended oil Castrol RS 4T Racing 5W40 at 5 or 6,000 mile intervals and your bike will last longer than you will. (Unless you are under 30....)

Follow the published specs and you'll be OK. My owners manual says to use SAE 5W-40, API SL / JASO MA2. Any oil that meets those specifications will be fine for your bike.

As stated, Liquid Moly should NEVER be used with a wet clutch.

Man you guys are paying WAY too much for your oils.
A member of our riding group in Sydney is the sales manager for Gulf Western oils in Sydney.
I have a 2010 and run a semi synthetic 15W50 oil. I get 20 litres deliver to my house for $77 Australian....whats that, about 2 buck US?

Maybe you should seek out an oil Wholesaler, and see if you can buy 20lt drums, that retail price is crazy.

current bike. 2010 R1200GS. 83000 km and going as good as new.
