Erik Buell Talks About AMSOIL Motorcycle Oils

Reduces Friction, Heat and Wear

In high heat conditions, AMSOIL Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil exceeds the standard for high-temperature film strength to deliver excellent wear protection. It 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 operating conditions. AMSOIL Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil is thermally (heat) stable and contains maximum levels of oxidation-inhibitor additives. It is extremely resistant to volatility and is 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.

Provides Extreme Pressure Quality Protection for Gears

With AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oil, there is no need for separate transmission lubricants. It is absolutely shear stable and will not thin out from mechanical activity. AMSOIL MCF performs like a gear lube without the negative effects of extreme pressure additives. In the FZG gear test, AMSOIL MCF achieved a perfect score with a zero wear rating (see photo below).

Delivers Superior Rust 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

AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-40 Motorcycle Oil contains no friction modifiers and promotes smooth shifting and positive clutch engagement. AMSOIL MCF controls heat and prevents slippage and glazing, helping improve clutch life. AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-40 Motorcycle Oil meets the wet clutch frictional requirements of JASO Standard T903: 2006, MA/MA2 and ISO-L-EMA2 of ISO Standard 24254:2007.

MIXING AMSOIL

AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-40 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).

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!

10W-40

I used Amsoil in my Yamaha WR250X Supermoto and I noticed a big difference in smoother shifting and motor running cooler and more consistent power on hotter days,before switching to Amsoil it would get a little boggy at times when hot,no more problems with Amsoil in it!

Best in the industry!

I am an avid motorcyclist that have ridden all over this country on my 2010 HD Ultra Classic. When I purchased the bike new in June of 2010 I immediately changed the factory oil at 500 miles to Amsoil 20W50. It has over 125,000 miles on it now and has never had the heads removed from the engine yet. I just did another 5,000 mile oil change and it was down 1 quart in 5,000 miles. 5,000 mile oil changes have been the normal it's entire life. I am a very convinced customer of this product!
