Lucas oil products

Does anyone use either the oil stabilizer or the fuel injection cleaner or both in their V? I have been using that product in my cars and trucks for years. I am curious if they are harmful in smaller high rev engines or if those products would be ok to use.

They do have a motorcycle specific oil stabilizer, beside motorcycle engine oil, etc.

I use Lucas Fuel Treatment all the time. I only add 1 ounce per 10 US gallons. It more than pays for itself in improved fuel efficiency alone... They now also have Safeguard™ Ethanol Fuel Conditioner with Stabilizers if you can't avoid ethanol fuel.

You can type in Lucas Top End into the search engine and see this topic has been covered. Not railing you for bringing it up, but if you pre-search the topic you will get an idea of how people are going to answer your question. You'll get some pros and cons for responses.

I use Lucas Injector Cleaner/Fuel Conditioner in the following engines I own:
2001 Yukon
1999 Legacy GT
2008 Ninja 650R (racer)
2008 Versys
1999 KLR650
1988 Hawk GT
2004 CRF250R
2004 CRF250X
2004 KLX110
1995 XR200
2000 XR50
1996 Honda Harmony Lawnmower
2011 Troybilt edge trimmer
???? Homelite chain saw

The cars and bikes get the recommended ratio every 3 tanks.
The mower, trimmer, and saw every fill up (cause I premix a 5gal can)

The mower, Ninja, KLR, CRFR have all had the heads off and I've seen no evidence of why I should not use it. I have no scientific method to claim it pays for itself, but I've been a part time motorsport and small engine tech for almost 20yrs now and have used Lucas and similar products to agressively clean top ends with positive results. I'm not the only one.

This is not a specific promotion of Lucas that I'm giving. It does seem to be the flavor of choice lately. Use any top end cleaner that grabs your fancy.

I currently like Lucas because I have gotten unsolicited endorsement for it from other techs in the automotive field as well as motorsports, and to me equally as important, Lucas promotes and supports motorsports.

How's that?
