    LIQUI MOLY Racing Bike Oil Additive for 1998 R1100RT?

    Heya!

    Does anyone have any experience/opinions about this additive for an older oilhead? I have a 1998 R1100RT and I'm wondering if this additive might help to smooth it out a little or extend engine life or both..?

    you really don't need any additive. Change your oil more or less every 5,000 miles it will be good enough. Additive will not smooth out the motor, ( don't over fill that could make the motor run rough).

    Should you use this additive in any engine that uses an oil level sight glass you won't be able to check the oil level. The moly will coat the sight glass to the extent you can't discern the oil level. I made this error once, and it took two oil changes without the moly additive before I could once again tell where the oil level was by looking at the sight glass.

    Wet clutches? Sprag clutches? Well, it's made in Germany, so it's likely in some beemer sickles. Waiting for the report.
