I'm in a different position than most here, I have all vintage bikes and have used both Brad Penn (higher zinc levels) and Rotella T4. With the DOHC 450 you want as much zinc as the engine and clutch can stand to help avoid cam lobe and follower wear. Penn is pricey and you typically have to get it from a speed shop, Rotella cheaper and more widely available. With Rotella I add a little ZDDP for good measure.

Would it be a hi-jack to ask which oil analysis labs are used?
