60 miles sounds like a nice little trip on the bike, thats what you got it for. Before you know it you will be riding 100 miles just for a cheeseburger. Throw on a backpack and go get some oil.
I do appreciate your wisdom on the subject. I am not having any clutch or shifting problems whatsoever. But like you said, mine also does shift better since adding the Lucas treatment. I will stop if it affects warranty though. I have only used it in the crankcase once with my current bike. But I do buy Mobil One designed for motorcycles so that should not affect my warranty. I am not hard on my clutch either. The transmission in my V Star must have good synchronizers, because I shift without the clutch and it shifts rather smoothly. I have been a bike rider for years and this V Star shifts very nicely without the clutch. OH Yeah, the clutch is stock!There always seems to be some debate about friction reducers, synthetic oil, and oil additives. My first thought about the Lucas oil treatment is. The warning in our oweners manuals about oils and addatives containing friction reducers. The wet clutch is the problem.
Busterm, you are evidently not having any clutch problems? Wonder if the clutch is stock and if you have had any sign of slipping?
I have in the past used one ounce of Lucas Oil Treatment to an oil change. Even that small amount made a noticable improvement in shifting. I don't push my clutch as hard as some. I never noticed any sign of a problem. But I did stop using Lucas after reading up on oil additives.
If anyone uses addatives or non motorcycle oil you should at least be aware of this. It could affect warrenty.
