Bel-Ray oils

What about Bel-Ray Engine oil for roadbikes 4T?

Wonder about EXP Synthetic ester blend oil. Is it good for my Varadero 1000?

If it meets the standards in your owners manual use it. I've used BelRay in my 2 strokes since the '80s with good results. Might try it in the street bikes soon.

Thanks for the replays.

Yes, I understand that if it meets the standard the oil is okay. Here in Sweden there are oils(wich meets the standard) but not a popular oil, because people belives its craps.
Bel-Ray is not so knowed oil here in Sweden. Most people use Motul and Castrol.

I jus wondered if Bel-Ray is a good knowed/used oil in other countries and, if I want a semisyntethic oil....is this the one (EXP Synthetic ester blend oil)

Yup, it's a quality brand name. I've run it in oilhead motors and it worked as intended. If it's better/best...I'll leave that battle to the oil thread guys.

Not that it's the same product or application, but I believe that Bel-Ray makes the grease used on the steam catapults on the Nimitz class aircraft carriers. It seems to me if they can do that they can probably make quality oil for your bike.
