Silkolene Race Oil - May 11, 2010, 03:38 PM

Has anyone ever used this? I've read a lot of good reviews about it and was thinking to test it out. It's expensive as shit but might be worth a try.

Pro R 0W-20 Racing Oil
Special formulation, racing only 4-stroke engine oil using Electrosyntec Technology.
Silkolene Pro R 0W-20 Racing Oil is an entirely new concept in competition lubrication. Racing engines lose power and waste
fuel energy due to oil drag and friction. This maximum power 0W-20 is a unique low viscosity synthetic which cuts oil drag yet
maintains a tough low-wear film on highly stressed components. Specially researched friction modifier chemistry depends
upon Electrostatic Adhesion to attack friction at crucial points in valve and power train systems - two sources of hidden power
give that vital edge in acceleration and full throttle output.
Dynamometer tests on 0W-20 advanced development project racing engine oil have produced amazing results. The test
machine was an 1100cc Honda Blackbird motorcycle approximately 1 year old. Power curves were obtained using a 'Dynojet'
rolling-road dynamometer set up to record EEC horsepower. The results were as follows:-
􀂃 15W-50 Racing engine oil:- Max power: 127.9 BHP @ 9750 RPM. Max torque: 75.8 ft-lbs.@
7300 RPM
􀂃 5W-40 Racing engine oil:- Max power: 131.6 BHP @ 9750 RPM. Max torque: 77.7 ft-lbs.@
7400 RPM
􀂃 Pro R 0W-20 Racing Oil:- Max power: 134.4 BHP @ 9750 RPM. Max torque: 78.9 ft-lbs.@ 7400 RPM
These results were much better than expected. In restricted racing classes where modifications are strictly limited, power
increases in the region of 3 to 5% are potentially race-winning!

Regardless of what they say, I would run any 20wt oil in my bike if it calls for 50wt.

When that stuff breaks down, it is probably the viscosity of water. Not good regardless of what they say about film strength.

I would like to see some non-sponsored dynographs of the oil comparison.

onelow, what are you trying to accomplish by running this oil? Cooler temps? More power? Extra protection? Longer drain intervals?

asking seriously. It is a really expensive oil and there are a lot of less expensive options out there based on you response. Just because it says "racing" on it doesn't mean it's the best stuff for your bike, just keep that in mind.

on the internet you can be anyone you want, it's strange that so many people choose to be so stupid

I think I just want to try a different oil for my bike to see the response that I get. I have tried numerous oils from rotella to repsol.. amsoil being the latest. I'm not necessarily looking for cooler temps or more power.. I know there won't be extra protection or longer drain intervals with this oil. I'm also smart enough to know that anything that says racing on it isn't always needed..

I was just reading around some kawi forums and a few people raved about this oil and how they had improved performance while using it.

silkolene is really good oil...ive always ran it in my bikes and i love it...again it is a lil pricey but for what it is its great..i mean we spend thousands of dollars on our machines and aftermarket performance..why not spend the lil extra where it really matters!

Because that extra money does not necessarily buy your extra protection. Plenty of overpriced MC specific oils out there sold at shops that under deliver when compared to other oils.

I can run off the shelf Rotella, Mobil 15w-50, or AMSoil at about 6 bucks or less a quart and have a better oil that most so-called MC oils.

I see no data as to what base stocks they are using and unless you run very short intervals on a low viscosity oil like that, you are asking for problems.

I would prefer to have a safe motor than one that makes about 2 more HP and cost a sh*t ton more to run.
