Heavy duty engine oils (HDEOs) can be used in motorcycles safely and to great effect for a variety of reasons. They have no friction modifiers, contain high levels of zinc and phosphorus (excellent metal-to-metal contact deterrents) and are generally made and tested for abuse in large machinery like trucks, diggers and so on(with turbo chargers).
