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

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).

This is the ONLY oil I'll use in my Triumphs

Use this in both our bikes. Last summer on our annual road trip we got caught in rush hour traffic with a major accident. lots of stop & go 5 to 30 yards at a time, I'm pulling a trailer, wife has extra 100 lb. of luggage (2hr to go 20mile/32 km), all this in 100 deg. Fahrenheit temp.
Both bikes got very hot, got them checked next day at nearest dealer, even they said it's the quality oil the oil that prevented engine damage and oil tested "good to go".
This oil may cost more than other synthetic motorcycle oils, but you get what you pay for. I'll never use any other oil in my British Bikes, or Amsoil products in anything I ride, drive, etc.

Great oil

This is not the oil I recently ordered. I ordered 20W-50 motorcycle oil and 0W-20 & 5W-20 for my car and truck. With that said I never put any other oil in my vehicles - NEVER. Its the best oil on the market and I'm a fan! I also use Amsoil in my zero turn mower and gun cleaner.

So far so good

I just changed the oil that came with a used BMW R1200C that I recently bought and so far it is running as smoothly as ever. Since this is the first time that I used the oil it is a little early to judge it but having used Amsoil in all of my products for years I am confident that it will be just fine.

Great mc oil for my Triumph

I have been using Amsoil for a couple of seasons now and it is a great product. I had been having issues with the shifting on my 1996 Triumph Trophy but it has straightened right out since I switched to Amsoil.

Smoothest shifting by far

I had used another oil in my concours 1400 for a long time but had to change it often. I also noticed shifting would get clunky very fast. I decided to try amsoil and I'm glad I did. This oil is holding its own. No clunky shifting and it's lasting twice as long as the old oil.

I use AMSOil in everything!

I don't know for sure how long I have been using AMSOil products, but it has been well over 20 years. I have used it in my pickup trucks, automobiles, motorcycles and race cars. It has done me well in the heat of South Texas, the cold of Northern NH, and now, Tampa Bay heat and humidity. I have it in all 3 holes of my 2013 HD TriGlide, my 2008 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali with 245,000+ miles on it- does not use oil! use it in the tranny and differentials- front and rear (AWD); This metric M/C oil was for a friend that wanted to try it... he has been riding now for a few months and said he will now switch to AMSOil!
