Can You Put Car Oil In A Motorcycle?

We all know that all engines aren’t created equally, but is the oil that goes into it the same? Gasoline kinda is, so would oil be any different? We really wanted to provide a definitive answer to this question. But the thing is, if we say a definitive YES, we’re going to get a slew of comments and messages disagreeing. Same thing happens if we say NO. Since we’re not really in the click bait market, we figured we could address this question as it should be – of a scientific mind. This video will break down what you need to know.

In a nutshell – you should definitely use motorcycle specific oil if that’s what your motorcycle recommends, but in a pinch, car oil could work okay. Just be sure the weight is correct. You know what? Just watch the video below and get all the information that you will need to make this work for you.
