That was almost 30 years ago and my career took a different direction so I don't claim any special expertise in that field, but one thing I did learn is that there are ASTM/SAE standard tests for lubricant additives. Anyone that can't show results from one of these standardized and industry recognized tests is selling snake oil.

    And there's nothing magic about nanoparticles. It's a buzzword, pure and simple. You'll find everyone from cosmetic manufacturers to clothing makers using "nanoparticles" in their ad copy. Nano means small. It doesn't mean good.
    I don’t even want to understand “ nano particles “ all I know is I have a lot of miles on a sheave with no grease in it that’s coated with them and it and the rollers show zero wear! That’s proof enough for me.
    If these same nano particles are in this so called snake oil doing the same thing to my gears as they’ve done to my sheave, already proven not to hurt my front differential, I’m in...... maybe I don’t need it, but it sounds like cheap insurance since I’m already a believer. It was already on my to do list for my next service!

    Can’t hurt! Not expensive! I’d call that some “good” nano particles, and good snake oil!

    buzz term should be 'dry lube'

    The military seem to like the 'hype' https://ws2coating.com/industries/military/

    Oh my my, are you all getting riled up over an opinion and discussion or just enjoying your postings. Not sure what to say now other than it was my opinion and I go by SAE & API classification selecting from what I deem is either good enough and/or the best bang for the buck. All with without modifications to what comes out of that bottle. Yamaha did not request more than the GL spec's documented. That's enough for me and I change the fluid more than required to be sure at this early time in its life.

    Hunterworks has some good products as I have seen. Too rich for me to buy in Canada. As far as butter goes, it goes on my toast here. LOL not in the gearbox.

    I hope you're all having a great time riding you machines. I was out today in the snow as it hit 5C and sun so a lot of melting going on. I am going to back out now before something is taken out of context and/or the wrong way.
