Slick 50 usage.
I have a 22 K1200LT. I am using Mobil 1 15W50 synthetic. I have about 3,000 on this change and since the weather is cooler, it will not be ridden as much. Since this is very thick oil and will be even slower to circulate in the cold weather, has anyone ever heard of using or has used Slick 50 to prevent wear on cold starts in the middle of winter? Will its use help, hinder, or cause unforseen problems?
I know answers may very greatly on the use of oil additives, especially in motorcycles, but I am curious. There seems to be quite the debate on the use of synthetic oils. Both pros and cons.
