But i think it mentioned something about particles that the filter cant catch as they are so tiny.
I might just give it a try during my next oil change and see what i find. Hopefully not nails and screws picked up from the road, which on afterthought seems like a good idea as well.
I'm NOT a mechanic, and I don't play one on TV, but I would presume that any metal bits that are hitching a ride in your oil are going to get trapped by your oil filter, and anything that doesn't will not be much of a problem for your rings and bearings, or anything else. This is especially true if you use a top shelf filter, as we worrisome motorcyclists almost always do. It's interesting that a $2.99 Fram filter is good enough for a passenger car for most of these same folks, even though the average price for a new car in the US is north of $25,000, as opposed to a $6-7,000 motorcycle, but that's the motorcycle biz for you.
Most touring bikes out there seem to have no problem racking up 100,000 miles with 5 micron particles (ferrous or otherwise) zinging around in their oil. Honda's motors average 100HP/Liter. We have 50. Their engines are pretty dang tight, (Ours? well, you do the math...)and yet no manufacturer has seen fit to stick a $1 "rare-earth" magnet into their filters---BTW...why do they call them "rare" when you can find them in any computer disc drive?
Add to this... that in my (albeit limited) 20-some years of riding, I have yet to see ANY motorcycle dead on the side of the road as a result of a blown engine. I've also never seen a motorcycle that has undergone a failure related engine transplant - unless you count the folks who have a dresser drawer full of drag slips. Most Vulcaneers put less than 50,000 very PAMPERED miles on their bikes. Some a LOT less than that. How many engine rebuilds will one of these gollywhoppers really save you?
IMHO, This device ranks in the same category as designer spark plugs that guarantee to turn your bike into an asphalt eating monster, or those daffy magnetic (funny...it's always magnets...
) devices that you clamp to your fuel line to discombobulate the molecules to improve your fuel efficiency...or maybe those tornado thingys that you put into your air breather to increase you air fuel mix.
If it triggers red lights (or anything else) for you...then maybe it will not be completely useless depending on where you live. I haven't noticed that problem where I live.
