Mobil 1 Synthetic Difference

Does anyone know the difference between Mobile MX 4T and Mobile 4T. I usually use the MX (pic on left) but the non MX(pic on right) is on sale right now and would like to know if it is as good or not.. or should it not be used in my 08 600RR.

Any input would be appreciated

Thanks

I've only used the 4T...have never seen the MX.

4T is not a prob.

I found this from a couple forums from back in '07. I checked Mobil's site, but couldn't find it.

From Mobil's website:

Mobil 1 MX4T 10W-40 was renamed because the product is known as Mobil 1 Racing 4T 10W-40 outside the US. Mobil 1 Racing 4T 10W-40 joins Mobil 1 Racing 2T, for two-cycle engines, and Mobil 1 V-Twin 20W-50. Be assured that no changes to the Mobil 1 MX4T 10W-40 formulation occurred during this name change. Same great product, new name.

If this is accurate, the MX-4T would have to be really old stock. I've also used the 4T for many years and love it.

Perfect, Thanks everyone for their input. Sorry I have one more dumb question.. Since we only get our oil in Liters (not quarts) should I put three liters in or will that be too much? Even though a liter is just a bit more the a quart.

Thanks

Put 2 litres in, then start checking the fill line as you ad more. You never just dump a generic amount in, you look.

'06 F4i- Yoshimura RS-3C, Racetech springs and valves, Ohlin's rear shock, steel brake lines, 520 conversion. 87k miles and counting.....
'08 600RR- Stripped trackbike. CRG shorty brake lever, goodridge front brake lines
'15 1000RR- weekend toy
------Disclaimer: I can't spell------

Why not... put the exact amount required in? Pretty sure you can convert quarts to liters.

I also run this oil in my bike. Ran it in my old one as well and never had any issues with it.
