Does any one use this in they're bikes? Does it have any effect, good or bad, on oil viscosity, flow or clutch friction? Just wondering. Bought some at southwick sat and the rep said i'd only need a capful for the amount of oil my bike uses, 34 oz.
Thanks

I use nothing but Amsoil, and it more than gets the job done. Most additives like that are not good for you clutch fibers.

Find some 92 octane ethanol free fuel as well and your bike will run better than ever.

Is it possible to find ethanol free gas at the pump anymore? The last fuel rack that was ethanol free in eastern WA switched to an ethanol blend rack this spring. I really hate the stuff, ethanol, but vp and sunoco are expensive.

Lucas oil stabilizer contributes to excessive foaming of the engine oil. I would not use it in any engine of mine regardless of reason. Lucas engine oil also does poorly in lab foaming tests.
