Re: Oil Additives

I would agree additives are usually​ a waste of money, the only one I ever used was the one Honda did for the V engines on my VT250.

Re: Honda CL175K6 1972 in the back yard.

The CL still languishes although my income has increased greatly since April when I started my part time job at Draganfly most of that goes into the pot here and of course my expenses have increased.
