I just wanted to let everyone know that if you see me reffering to oil additives as "Snake Oil" that,

I hope I am not offending anyone by using words "snake oil".

I just get a laugh out of others who refer to the additives as "Snake Oil" that help improve existing oils/coolants

From past experiences,I have come to the conclusion that some "nay sayers" have not even tried any of the additives but have done their best to warn others about it.:whip:

I am a believer in "snake oils" and will endorse the ones that work for me plain and simple.:cooler:

Here is a smalllistof the following snake oils that have worked for me..

MMO - gas and oil

Lucas Motor Oil - No clutch slippage - so far..I used 8oz's and will increase to 12 as time goes on per oil/filter change..

Evans Coolant NPG+ for motorcycles - expensive? sure but not that bad in comparision to money I have spent on the bike overall..plus, it is environmentally friendly should it ever leak out.:grinner:

Hope every one has a great day!:cheeky1:

My favorite terms are 'Miracle in a Can' and 'Snake Oil'. That covers stuff whether it works or not. I do like MMO, WD40, Seafoam and several others. As for offending anyone, hell if they can't take a joke fuggum!

I forgot to mention the little bell that someone sent me out of the kindness of their heart to place on my bike to protect me from all the bad spirits whilst riding my trusty mechanical steed.

My problem is thatI lost the bell...:doh:

That's not bad luck is it??:realshocked:

I was going to hook it up to my 12" dream catcher I have mounted on the windshield.:grinner:

Be careful with Lucas. I added it to crankcase and it jammed up my neutral switch, which stays lighted now.

They are, but if you've had experience with Lucas components on a car, the word just sets you off.

I got Rotor Wash left over from the Navy, shines real good too just like Prop Wash. When I had my Harley back on 87 I use an oil produced in Germany called I believe "OPTIMAL" was real expensive and they had a warranty that they would double the manufacturers warranty if you used it. Any one heard of this?:baffled:
