one i rode daily for over a year, racked up about 7500 miles, full throttle everyday, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with it. cylinder walls are perfect, piston is perfect, and still running the same plug, and it's perfect.
there's no blow-by, no scoring, and no detonation hot spots or carbon deposits on the piston.
i'm 100% positive my rings are seated. if they're not seated by now, i think i'd know about it.
if you took the time to read this whole thread, you'll notice the only detractors are the people who've never tried it. and out of everyone who uses it, there's only 2 people who've had problems, and one of them was me. and both problems were from switching over from regular oil on older engines.
this thread speaks for itself as proof that it works. unless anyone who advises you against it has tried it, tested it, compared it, and documented it, and showed it wasn't good for these motors, don't listen to them. they're just going by what the "experts" say.
and i don't see any of those "experts" on this forum. they're all sitting behind a desk trying to unload cases of their particular brand of "better" oil.
i will never use another oil in my bike.
as far as a dealer not warrantying an engine if you use Opti2, i'd go somewhere else. if/when i start selling bikes and kits, i'm gonna tell people i won't warranty it if they use any oil but opti2.
that's how much i believe in it.
The only thing i've seen on this whole forum about that is some one has been tryin very desperatley to sit there and move that AMISOL synthetic AND THIS IS VERY OBVIOUS!!!!
Hey dude!!!! just the price my motor is 370.00 American and it just aint as cheap as yours. All u have to do is buy a new one and I ain't rich!!! There are lots of people here on this forum who are not rich.
I can buy Amisol where I buy my other oil!!! ya thats right!!! it's right there on the shelf!!! U know... I really wanted to buy some because of HOW MUCH I'VE BEEN HEARING ABOUT IT ON THIS FORUM IN THE LAST YEAR AND HALF!!!!! AAAAAAND IT'S THE OOOOOOOONNNLY BRAND that I've been hearing about. but i cannot use it and .....
You understand that the engineers and designers that BUILT my motor ARE THE EXPERTS. It's their engine.....They MADE IT!!!! and they said that ANY HIGHEND 2 CYCLE OIL WILL DO!!! Does the word ANY stand out a bit??? They just simply said not to use SYNTHETIC. thats all
so pease relax and take a pill.... it's all ok my warrenty ran out 3 years ago .
nothing personal dude, I'm just sayin what it is on my end
