AMSOIL 10W-30 Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil (MCT) is a premium oil designed for those who demand the absolute best lubrication for their motorcycles. AMSOIL MCT is the result of extensive research, and it is specially formulated to excel in all areas unique to motorcycles, including high engine RPM, wet clutch lubrication, extreme pressure regions of gears and rust common to short drives and storage.
Package sizes include:
AMSOIL 10W-30 Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil is engineered for motorcycles that require 10W-30 motorcycle oil, including those made by Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki and Suzuki.
* Recommended for transmissions requiring an API GL-1 fluid, but not recommended where an API GL-4 or GL-5 gear oil is required.
• API SG, SL/CF
• JASO MA/MA2
Whether riding aggressively, cruising or in stop-and-go traffic, AMSOIL 10W-30 Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil delivers the benefits most important to riders, including premium wear protection; smooth, confident shifts and cool, clean
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-30 Motorcycle Oil contains no friction modifiers and promotes smooth shifting and positive clutch engagement. It controls heat and prevents slippage and glazing, promoting longer clutch life.
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.
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.
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).
Keep out of the reach of children. Don't pollute. Return used oil to collection centers.
