Product Description

AMSOIL MCT is multi-functional and fulfills the requirements of both domestic and foreign motorcycles. It outperforms other conventional and synthetic motorcycle oils.

AMSOIL, the leader in automotive synthetic lubrication, produced the world's first API-qualified synthetic motor oil in 1972. Trust the extensive experience of AMSOIL The First in Synthetics® to do the best job protecting your engine.

Reduces Friction, Heat and Wear

In high heat conditions, engine protection is not sacrificed with AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oil. AMSOIL 10W-30 keeps engines running cool by effectively reducing friction and heat, and it contains a heavy treatment of anti-wear additives to reduce wear regardless of the operating conditions (see Four-Ball Wear Test graph below). AMSOIL MCT is thermally (heat) stable and contains maximum levels of oxidation inhibitor additives. It is extremely resistant to volatility (see NOACK Volatility graph on reverse) and engineered to prevent damaging sludge and carbon deposits for superior engine cleanliness.

• Premium wear protection
• Smooth, confident shifts
• Cool, clean performance

Smooth, Confident Shifts
AMSOIL Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil contains no friction modifiers and promotes smooth shifting and positive clutch engagement. It is engineered to control heat and prevent slippage and glazing, promoting longer clutch life.

Controls Foam
High-rpm operation causes some motor oils to foam. When foam bubbles travel between gear teeth or engine components, they collapse, allowing metal surfaces to contact, causing wear. AMSOIL Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil contains advanced anti-foam additives that help prevent foam, allowing riders to confidently push their bikes to the limit.

Four Ball Wear Test

Provides Extreme Pressure Quality Protection for Gears

With AMSOIL MCT, there is no need for separate transmission lubricants. It is shear stable and will not thin out from mechanical activity. AMSOIL MCT performs like a gear lube without the negative effects of extreme pressure additives, such as poor wet-clutch performance.

Delivers Superior Rust and Corrosion Protection

Motorcycles are prone to rust from storage, humidity and short drives. Rust can cause major damage, such as uncontrolled wear, compression loss and blow-by. Good rust protection, however, comes by design and is not natural to motor oils. Unlike many motorcycle oils, AMSOIL Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil contains special anti-rust agents that deliver superior rust protection. With its high 11.1 total base number (TBN), AMSOIL Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil provides greater protection from acid corrosion and helps maintain internal engine cleanliness.

Provides Excellent Wet Clutch Performance

MIXING AMSOIL

AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-30 Motorcycle Oil is compatible with conventional and synthetic motor oils; however, mixing oils may shorten the oil life expectancy and reduce the performance benefits. AMSOIL does not support extended drain intervals where oils have been mixed.

Aftermarket oil additives are not recommended for use with AMSOIL motorcycle oil.

SERVICE LIFE

Recommended for use up to twice the motorcycle manufacturer-recommended change interval (miles/hours) or one year, whichever comes first, in engines and transmissions.

When using an oil filter other than AMSOIL Ea® Motorcycle Oil Filter, change the filter at standard intervals.

Racing or modified engines are excluded from extended drain interval recommendations; oil changes are at the owner's discretion.

HEALTH & SAFETY

This product is not expected to cause health concerns when used for the intended application and according to the recommendations in the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).

Probably the best oil you can buy for your motorcycle.

Heard about the quality of the product, tried it in my motorcycle and I can hear a slightly quieter engine and slightly smoother shifting.

Fixed my Goldwing GL1800

I put this into my recently acquired 2002 Goldwing GL1800 with 36,000 miles on it. The previous owner has been using Diesel engine oil - who knows why. Shifting was very clunky and neutral was difficult to locate. I ran 1,000 miles with Amsoil 10W-30 and then changed the oil again. Now I have smoother shifts and neutral is easier to locate. Pretty cheap fix for a 17 year old bike.

...engine just "purrs like a kitten"! - Yes, VERY Happy!!

Just moved past the break-in point on my BMW R1200R at ~14k mi. where it's time to go FULL-SYN - With doubts about the BMW spec of 5W-40 having more modifiers for cold weather-related starts (which I don't need in Cali), and being WAAY more expensive...I went with this Amsoil 10W-40. Sure-enough, the engine just "purrs like a kitten"! - Yes, VERY Happy!!
