Just don't use, any engine cleaners. Right, Dave?

things work in my bike too. 

But I've been running 20-50 oils for years and have
had no shifting issues with any of the other 4 bikes
in my garage or any before them (except the BMWs). And
none of them so obviously wore out an oil in short

I just don't feel my GPZ's shifting is up to the
standards of what Japanese engineers usually release
to the market. For that reason, I'm still wondering
whether super oils may be a way of covering up an
underlying mechanical issue that can be addressed

Anybody know any engine builders or race mechanics who
have experience rebuilding Kawa 4 cyl motors?
