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).

Great product no problems

I use 10w 40w metric oil in my 2004 Yamaha R-1 and haven't had any issues. I had been using Motul but when a friend turned me on to AMSOIL I was hooked by the price and the quality.

Makes transmissions feel amazing.

I have a lot of friends who use this in everything from Yamaha 250 all the way to a Kawasaki ZX-14R. They all love how well the transmission shifts and how awesome the clutch feels. They have also reported that their oil temps are slightly lower and much more stable compared to other oils they have used.

Jer

Great product.....been using it for years. Had an old bike repaired years ago. Mechanic replaced shift fork in trans. He commented how clean the engine and trans were inside. This bike had been sitting for almost 20 years. Used amsoil for a year prior to repair. Shift fork was damaged by a young rider not by lack of lubrication. Mechanic was totally impressed. Sold me on the product. I use on all my new bikes today. Never an issue. Superb heat disapation and lubrication. Highly recommend this product.
