[Honda-C70] Re: engine overheating


I'd assume if left sitting for too long it would cause pitting but I'm not exactly an expert either.

So, I bought some Marvel Mystery Snake Oil Extreme 2.0

I poured roughly an ounce or two into the crankcase & the same for what I assume to be 4/5 of a full tank. I'll probably ride as-is for 50-100 miles, throw like 1/4 of the 16oz bottle in the crankcase for an extra few trips around the neighborhood & then change into this proper quart of non-resourse-conserving 10W-40 I just bought, using the rest of the bottle here & there when refilling the gas tank to make sure the top end is nice & shiny...er.

What do you guys think? The mysterious salesman said it was totally legit!
