What I calculated so far would be 2 options for me. Oil change takes 800ml. Fist option: I can go 100ml oil stabilizer 700ml of oil. Second option: 200ml of stabilizer 600ml of oil.
The first option would be for the heavier weight oils 30w/40w for as thick the oils is.
The second option would be for the lighter weight oil 20w.

1-: 100ml Lucas Oil Stabilizer and 700ml of Shell Rotella 10-30/40w Full Synthetic
2-: 200ml Lucas Oil Stabilizer and 600ml of Shell Rotella 10-20 Full Synthetic

I wish my old disabled butt would get in gear. There are days I can get somethings done then have to take 2-3 days to recover smh.
I feel your pain, I flare with this stupid Fibromyalgia every few weeks. Good news is medical science has kept pace with MY inevitable geriatrics and 3 new treatments are inbound in the next few years if approved by the FDA ... SO CHIN UP CHIEF maybe something for you too.

Here was a discovery I made recently that people have found out themselves who have FM that made perfect sense to me. Vibration therapy helps numb the arthritis type pain o_O I immediately understood my addiction to riding everyday either on a bumpy PCX or a V-twin harley engine under my azz. I hadn't made the connection prior to hearing about vibration therapy treatments for Fibromyalgia. I wonder how the hell they do it? :lol:


For us "old" guys and girls.

Mine took less than 800, I've read where others' took less also. Remember the spec says to check oil level with the engine hot and stick NOT screwed in. Also, that 200/600 ratio seems high to me .... what's Lucas call for ?

For fast rotation parts in engines it helps to keep oil on parts. It is a little tacky but serves as a protectant when there is oil starvation or pick up issues.

I have used this in race V-8 engines that would turn high rpm ranges. It puts a layer on the bearing to prevent them from running dry. I have never had any issues with it. I built a 1967 Chevrolet 283ci motor and used a quart of the Lucas in it. When I was racing I missed a gear at 8'000rpm she pegged the tachometer to 10'000rpm but never blew the bottom end. I felt I was lucky. When I tore the motor down the bearing looked fine and no issues. I figured it would work well in these high winding little engines as well. I used it in my Chinese Tao Tao Powermax 150cc and never had an issue either.

Rode west on 74/I-74 from Laurinburg N.C. to Rockingham N.C. testing the Honda PCX150. Parts of 74/I-74 are 70 mph zones. I had no issues and was passing cars and trucks with ease. I ran a round trip of 40+ miles out there and she was holding her own. I had to rush home to beat the rain that was on the way in and just made it lol. Was nice to have fun even riding solo.

@maddiedog This work out perfect for you? In the long run this may be the best route for me in the end. I can get a life time+ out of this setup. Has any one else run into the needle bearing issue for the clutch?!?! I have seen something on it before but not sure. Have the got a clutch replacement available (performance or stock) built better to replace with? If so that would be a 2 hr knock out job changing gears and clutch to kill 2 birds with one stone.


Sorry, been out of the forum lately. Super busy with work, new baby, and new house.

The gear set was a bit of a hassle to install because of the need for a press. Otherwise, not bad. Check out the howto: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=4373

It definitely made a difference. With the big bore kit before the gearing, it hit limiter way too fast. After, it tapered off and finally hit the limiter after awhile. If I ever feel the need to put a big bore kit in my 2nd PCX, I'm planning on doing FI and gearing too. It doesn't really make sense to just do one, you'll notice the most difference with big bore, updated injector / FI, and gearing. :D

Ruckus with a pcx 150 motor. I’ve hit 78mph hitting the limiter. The motor has potential for some more power.
