Default Marvel Mystery Oil

How does the forum feel about adding Marvel Mystery oil in small amounts as an additive during an oil change, and out of the 3.59 qt capacity, what would you consider a correct amount to add?

The only thing that I would worry about is would there be an issue with the wet clutch?

I've never noticed any clutch problems and use MMO all the time...about an ounce in the oil and an ounce in the gas. Old timers....claim it keeps rust from forming in the gas tank.

I have no idea if this is true or not....but the stuff has been around since before dirt so I use it.

This is another one of those "repeating threads" where info on the subject can be found by doing a search on the site. I went as far as to post the MSDS for Marvel Mystery Oil. There was quite a lively discussion about this and other lubricants. You used to be able to add a port to your carb manifold to drip MMO into the intake from a remote reservoir for "top cylinder lubrication." That was one of the JC Whitney staples in the fueling section of their print catalog along w/flat "pizza-tin" air filters of differing sizes and anti-fouling extensions for spark plugs.

I use a couple ozs in my bike and gas tank all the time. I add it to everything I own, bike, boat, all my vehicles and even my plane. I often wandered why I never had rust problems in my Vmax like a few other members. I guess Dannmax may be right about the myth of MMO prevents rust in your fuel tank.

If you are using a good quality engine oil I can't see that you would get any benefits.

I would use X1R instead. This has been tested in v-maxs and is highly recomended by a V-Max after market suplier
