Mobil-1 MX4T

It got some high recommendations from some guys I trust so I put it in @ the 4,000 mile change. Its expensive though. Reasons are its made by Mobile-1 (maker of the best car oil), its fully synthetic (doesn't collect impurities as fast), and its made specifically for motorcycles (no wet clutch issues).

I use the Yamalube 4-R. I use it because it's what's available to me off the shelf, and the oil looks good.

would your friends know the difference between Mobil-1 MX4T and the Mobil-1 racing 4T which my Triumph manual says to use from 0 miles on?
