Default Lucas oil Synthetic oil Stabiliizer

Anyone ever use Lucas Oil Synthetic Oil Stabilizer in thier Victory 106 CI engine and 6 speed transmission. I talk with a guy who said the he has used it in his victory vision with no problems and it really cut down the transmission noise. Wondering if anyone else has or is using it. It says it is safe for wet clutches at a 10% mixture.

I used it in my VTX 1300R, and it really knocked the noise level down, I was thinking of using it in my Vision.

An oil stabilizer is a product formulated to compensate for wear in old engines and gear boxes and stop the wear process in new ones. Typically, it is a blend of petroleum extracted additives that allow motor oils and gear oils to maintain a higher degree of lubricity. It eliminates high temperature viscosity breakdown even under the most extreme conditions. It also allows the oil to last 50% longer.

Oil treated with a stabilizer does not run off cylinders after shut down. This eliminates dry starts which is a primary cause of wear in an otherwise well maintained engine.

Plain motor oil is formulated with the tolerance of new engines in mind. Once an engine becomes worn, the wearing process advances at a rapid rate because motor oil alone cannot fill the space between moving parts. Most stabilizers are formulated for both new and old engines. While a small amount (15%-20%) can maintain a new engine, larger amounts (up to 60%) can be added to a worn engine to properly seal and cushion the moving parts to slow oil consumption and prevent further wear. It also stops most seal leaks. Blends with all automotive lubricants, even synthetics, mineral oil and ATF.

Oil stabilizers are typically used on big rig trucks and in race cars. I got this information from a website selling their brand of oil stabilizer.

Now that you read this stop an think you change your oil every 2500 or 5000 miles. Right so is your oil really dirt or is the oil life over?
It says it good for new motors and clings to part. Isn't that what your oil does now?
Snake oil is what it is.

I wouldn't add it. In my mind, adding an oil additive to engine oil is like adding flour to water then trying to suck it up through a straw. The gears in your tranny may be quieter because the additive makes the oil thicker and it sticks to the teeth better, but to have it still easily pumped up to the top of the cylinder heads..... well, your choice. You may be gaining in one area, but losing in another.

I have read a lot (not forum dribble) about motor oils. The consensus is that motor oil contains a precise blend of additives and adding ANYTHING to that oil throws off that delicate balance. An analogy would be that motor oil is like a cake recipe...if it calls for two eggs, three eggs aren't better - you'll ruin the cake. Don't ruin your cake. If you have doubts about your oil, change it more often. Hey, that's cheap insurance.

HAvent used this in my bikes but use it in my Jeep and it saved my motor when I knocked a hole in my oil filter.
Not sure if it is formulated for a wet clutch.

I use it in everything I have that has an engine. I'm not a big fan of their regular oil stabilizer but I think their Synthetic stabilizer is a great product. I've used it in my XC since it had 600 miles on it (10k now) and I used it in my Vegas the whole time I owned that bike also. I've never experienced any clutch slippage on either bike. It really quiets down the transmission and also makes it shift so easily you clutchless shift it if you wanted but that is very NOT recommended, just saying it's capable. Also finds neutral very easy and my bike's a '10 that doesn't have the 'neutral finder' that the '11's have and is also supposed to have a noisy 4th gear according to a lot of guys but my 4th gear doesn't sound any different from the rest (no unusual noise). You don't need 10% for it to work good. About 8oz is all that's needed for great results in a Vic motor. Half a quart to a 4 or five qt oil change in a car/pickup engine is plenty. I've found with this product that if you use to much it can cause temporary oil consumtion until you get the ratio right. Seen that in my Vegas and also my Dad's semi-truck. Get the ratio right it's a great product. I've been using Mobil 1--5W40 Turbo Diesel Oil in my XC with this additive and I'm very happy with the combination. Nay Sayers........... say away.
