Trying to figure out what oil to use this year for engine side only, it’s toss up between liqui Molly 4t or maxima extra 4 ester oil iv used the maxima last year and loved it but I also see the benefits of pure Molly oil not sure what would be better as in more slippery. Don’t want a debate just facts about only these 2.

Looking for specific facts on two very specific oil’s is probably not going to get you a lot of feedback on here. It’s unlikely that anybody has run those two specific oil‘s and then broke down the engine and done and analysis to see which one is better.

honestly, as long as you’re running a quality synthetic oil you’ll be just fine. I have run Molly oil‘s and synthetic oil‘s and motors still blow up, but the fact is, motors run a lot cleaner with a synthetic. I run Honda HP4S and change it regularly.

i prefer maxima synthetic. is it really any better so long as you change it say every 3 rides..idk for sure? What I can say is i used to run rotella and used it on dang near everything but it does break down much faster. maxima is double the price but the engine is 5k to redo properly.. so reality is so long as you use quality oil and change it regularly it shouldnt matter that much/ frequency imho is more important the super fancy oil

Agreed on changing even 3 rides I was just looking for everything I can get out of this wheeler some people say moly makes the engine run cooler but I was wondering if ester had same concept, also agreed on no matter what oil it still blows up but I beat this quad hard so spending money on the best of the best oil anything isn’t a concern

Motor oils being the protector of engines contains additives and protectants to sustain your engine at long, reduce friction, protect it from wear and tear and remove plaque or smug. Liqui Moly brand contains Oil Additives, Motor Protect, and Cera Tec, the three specialists to protect your engine from wear and tear. These additives and chemicals are designed to tackle friction, reduce heat generation, prevent wear and tear, and stop the accumulation of plaque. Liqui Moly Oil additives contain MoS2, which is abbreviated as Molybdenum Sulfide, a graphite-like substance that acts as a solid lubricant. It is a solid and resilient lubricant channel to contain friction, smooth movement and sliding contact of mechanical parts of the engine. This way, heat generation can be reduced and the engine can work in a better environment and with greater efficiency and sustainable results. The lesser the friction, the better will be the performance and vice versa. These additives ensure smooth movement and sliding contact of the parts, to avoid wear and tear of the parts.
