There's currently a Bi-Tron craze going on. I've seen demonstrations on it (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tf3moijxSvk) and from what I've heard so far from my car friends, it works great. However, does anyone know if it's safe for motorcycles? Because the way a motorcycle clutch is designed (wet clutch in bikes vs. dry clutch in cars), would Bi-Tron interfere in a motorcycle clutch's operation. I'd like to get some input from anyone who has used this product in their bike or has extensive info on its usefulness (or otherwise) in bikes. Thanks.

If it's doing anything at all, it will harm the clutch.

I should have been more specific. I'm looking for info regarding their engine treatment product and if it interferes / does harm to the motorcycle clutch. One response so far. Anyone else have info?

you have a 2008 motorcycle that will run to 100,000 miles if you follow the manufacturers maintenance schedule.

you do not need any engine additives.

You know the one thing I notice about that test video? For every regular oil they simply poured some oil on the machine. Some of it probably flung off while most of the rest was burned. For the Bi-Tron, they submerged the lower portion of the machine in a pool of the oil/additive so it always had fresh oil. This test is total B.S.

It's hard to tell, but the container they mixed the bi-tron in was there for the other oils as well. They just poored into the container with it under the race bearing.
