What's the difference between motorcycle and dirt bike oils?
Most people who ask have an underlying question they really mean to ask: Can I use the same motor oil in my motorcycle and dirt bike?
Sure, you can use a single oil formulation for all your toys (assuming you use the correct viscosity in each). But you shouldn’t. Kind of like you can dump Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil into your machines, but you shouldn’t.
Why? Because each application presents unique challenges to motor oil that one formulation can’t meet. We’ll break them all down to see why.
