Hello, I'm Jason. I will do my best to answer your question quickly and accurately using the information you have provided.
No motor oil actually "softens" seals.
I did not think so
There are additives that say they do, but the unfortunate issue with those additives, is that they actually swell the seals
which causes further oil leaks
i have this in my bike as it got it cheap and was talking to someone and said I will ruin my engine
ohhhhhhh it does
I would stick with manufacturer recommendation on weight and brand
I will take it out
no, not the oil additives in the Valvoline oil...I'm talking about aftermarket additives
but definitely stick with manufacturer recos
there is only one oil they call for
but other guys run castol and purple etc
so can i run it for 2500 miles
and then change it
Shouldn't be a problem
would i put some lucus in it
nope, I would not
tahnks have a great day
