Most of that "trendy stuff" is designed to do ONE thing above all else....separate you from your hard earned dollar! Same for the synthetic oils. You shouldn't be using ANY of that garbage in an engine using a WET clutch as most all atv's have. "Super slippery" oils will only help your clutch SLIP. Use a good quality oil, keep it clean (changed) and also the FILTER. This also goes the AIR filter. Any crap that passes through the AIR filter goes straight into the combustion chamber of your engine. If the air filter gets packed full of dirt and not cleaned, the engine will suck in more GAS. If it's clogged up enough, it'll help cause the excess gas to wash down the cylinder walls of the engine (washing all the oil off) then you'll be metal on metal with the rings and cyl walls. THEN you'll be burning a LOT of oil and needing a top end. Most additives are manufactured to make money for the manufacturer by convincing people who don't know any better to BUY IT!
