I'm switching to Mobil 1 4t when my rebuilt motor hits 100 miles. Motor was knocking when I bought it. I'm breaking it in with Honda GN4. I've run Mobil 1 in everything from my drag cars to my trucks to my Harley for many years, and never had an engine problem out of any of them.

I'm on the Rotella T 15w40 bandwagon. We've run it in everything from over-the-road trucks to lawnmowers and farm tractors. It's always held up remarkably well to the redneck eye (no analysis done). My 450ES will get rotella when it's put back together, unless......

Has anyone on here tried or used Cen-Pe-Co lubricant products in our ATV world? I know they are huge in the competition pulling world. I have a friend who just switched his excavating machinery over to their stuff and the oil analysis results have been astoundingly good. I believe they are pricey however.
