OK, I know it's been done and everyone swears by it, but I have one major concern that I need addressed.



I've used pre-change additives in the past and it caused me some major headaches. It cleaned up so well that I lost the seal to my rings and I had major oil burning issues.



Has anyone had these issues or any othersusing the MMO?

If cleaning an engine out started it using oil it was worn out already and had carbon holding it together. No way will MMO cause the rings to loose their seal.

I used seafoam as prescribed on the bottle for my crankcase and changed the oil twice , once after 200 miles.
100 mile slater my oil was black, changed it and the second oil was laso black after a lil milage. 2 oil changes later and my oil looks fresh as or close to day one after 1300 miles on it.
I dont have anything against MMO, I have used it on many cars but just giving you my latest exprience.

My 82 GL 1100. According to my manual notes whoever owned my bike before me has been putting in 6oz of mmo each oil change for 40,000 miles. The bike seems fine, no smoke, runs strong. I assume the 6oz stays in the crankcase for the entire 3000 miles between changes. I have continued this for the past 20,000 miles which is what about 6 oil changes. Does this sound like a "normal" thing to do? Or should i use mmo every once in a while? Any Opinions?
