Anybody heard of MotorKote?

If you guys don't know, it's a friction modifier that bonds to metal to reduce friction (their tests and video demo are very convincing). It's hard to explain, but it works great in cars (especially turbos).

I e-mailed the company asking if it was okay in the Superhawk, and they said "use it anywhere friction is present!" Typical salesman B.S..

Something just doesn't sit right with it and my wet clutch. I don't want my clutch to start slipping, but I do want my motor to last forever. Any thoughts?

well, the "use it anywhere friction is present" statement, together with the claims that their product reduces friction, will warn me against using it on my wet clutch.

I truly believe that with changing your oil regularly (even with the cheapest oil out there), and by following your maintenance schedule, you can keep these engines running well over 100k miles, which is probably forever for most of us.

Some stuff are just over-kill.

Its likely to be just like the other fifty or so things like this that come and go: snake oil.
