Re: Is Motor Honey safe to use?

Sure, you can use motor honey on your GSX-R but when you go to lick it off, it will taste nothing like honey and likely will make you sick or kill you, don't be fooled by "honey" in the name. Now if your asking about using it "in" your bike, as in, adding it to your oil...why? Do you have excessive oil consumption? From what I read it is very thick and is used in older vehicles that consume oil.

Good for an 83 Monte Carlo with 200K miles on it that smokes like a chimney

Now why exactly do you want to put that shit into your sportbike's crankcase again?

Haha.
Like pulling teeth.
Have you isolated where the leak,or leaks are?
If you don't currently know the best way to go about fixing the issue properly.....you should ask here,and/or find a trusted mechanic.

Motor Honey is if engine is burning excessive oil not to fix oil leaks. If you have leaks it's going to be gaskets that are failing. First thing is to isolate where the leak(s) are, them go from there.

Do not put ANY car additives in a motorcycle engine. Unlike in a car, the oil in your engine also lubricates the clutch and transmission. Just get it fixed properly.

Now WHERE are those small leaks exactly?
