Motorkote hyper lubricant

Post by wolfwing » Wed Jun 10, 2015 9:28 am

I just got a '96 Goldwing SE with a little over 67k miles. I don't have a lot of info on it because I bought it from the widow of the owner. I am going to start out with an oil change and work threw it from there. My question is, has anyone used Motorkote with the engine oil and what were the results?

Still sittin' up, takin' nourishment, an' makin' a fist!

I have no negatives to say about the product. At least it does not contain moly. However with frequent/scheduled oil and filter changes the Honda GL engines are lasting for 100,000's of miles. So my question is what does the additive add to the oil that makes it worth the cost if engines are doing fine without it?

I think these additives may help with specific problems such as stabilizing gas that will sit with ethanol but for the most part I avoid additives. Instead I buy and use good motorcycle oil and filters.

First change the belts if one blows it will toast the engine, cheap preventive maintenance. Second if the bike has sat for a long time you might want to add a little sea foam or diesel to the oil run it easy for 200 miles and then change the oil and filter..this will help clean out settled slug. Also drain and replace all the brake and clutch fluid..fork oil too???

I'm always leery of adding things to the oil in a wet-clutch engine/trans system. Seafoam has been extensively tested (for cleaning out the engine ONLY, not for normal running) but, beyond that, I'd suggest a good quality, approved-specifically-for-motorcycles synthetic oil, and nothing else. The last thing you want to end up with is a glazed, slipping clutch. If you can find that there's been lots of testing in this type of application with Motorkote, then it might be worth doing, but if not, I'd stay away from it. Just my $.02
