Yep I use it, attitude is that i change it every 2500-3000 miles anyway so why not. According to the chap in HG they buy in bulk from Motul and put it in thier own HG bottles. could be just sales chat who knows
Never caused me a problem

any shop that sells the oil should be able to order it in a 55gal size. most do and keep it in the shop. just ask them if they can order you one :thumbup

I picked up a drum for a friend of mine before, I think it was motorex :O

I thought semi synthetic wasnt a good idea because of the clutch?
Full syth - at least in the "old" days, I beleive the new stuff is fully compatible? I'm too cheap to use it.

I;ll have chat with my local dealer on the drum.

I ran my track bike on fully synthetic last year and the clutch wouldn't work properly:banghead couldn't get it to slip at all when I was launching off the line, just like a switch either in or out, no inbetween. Made for spectacular starts:coocoo
Dropped the oil out, washed the plates in petrol, soaked in semi synthetic, put back together with fresh semi & it works perfect now:O
