I've never used it in my Outlaws that I owned but I've used it in my vehicles in the past. currently I am running it in my Polaris Rangers. It is some great stuff it is like motor honey as sticky as could be. It sticks on the parts offers a lot of protection but it is not too thick like gear oil or anything. it does what it's supposed to do for sure.

So would you recommend it for the outlaw? I didn't know how it would do with the wet clutch.

I have no personal experience there. I think I would check with Lucas oils or an oil pro if you have concerns. The bottle of Lucas oil additives I have says safe for wet clutches. I read on several sportbike forums just now and several people have used it in all of their sport bikes with wet clutches with no adverse reactions and their clutches seems to hold up better.

I wouldn't.
  When I was a kid I had an old Suzuki motorcycle and the gears made some noise.  Someone suggested I try adding a spoon or 2 of STP oil treatment and it might quiet it down.  I rode a few minutes and sure enough the tranny shifted better and it was a little quieter.  Then the clutch started slipping... really bad.  So I ended up pulling the clutch out and soaking the plates in gasoline and washing them several times with a cloth and brake cleaner (that stuff is hard to wash off), then draining all the oil and cleaning out the case and putting it all back together.  Slippery and sticky is good in oil.. but not in clutches.

I wouldn't run it in my RFS engines (outlaw 525 or 450) I have used it before in wet clutch engines but After learning the rfs engine Id be worried that it would slow down the oil flow to the oil spray jet that lubes the piston pin and crank rod and also the crank bearings. That spray jet is pretty small . most likely it wouldn't hurt anything But I wouldn't use it
