The AMSOIL Advantage
Motorcycle manufacturers want the best protection possible for their equipment, calling for rugged oils that exhibit high temperature deposit control additives. AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils are specially formulated with the best synthetic basestocks and high performance additives to provide tough lubricating protection for all 2-cycle and four-stroke motorcycle and ATV engines in the most demanding operations.
AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils are formulated for both water-cooled engines and the unique demands presented by air-cooled V-twin motorcycle engines, including Harley-Davidson. Conventional petroleum oils break down and oxidize when faced with high temperatures, such as those experienced when idling in traffic, contributing to the formation of deposits, sludge and varnish. AMSOIL withstands oil breakdown and oxidation in high temperatures, holds contaminants in suspension and keeps engines running cool and clean.
Zinc and phosphorous additives are extremely important to engines faced with high-pressure conditions, especially motorcycle engines, which typically have steep cam slopes, creating high pressure between the parts. In motorcycles, friction modifiers (prevalent in automotive oils) have been attributed to engine start failures, a rough running feel, and increased fuel consumption due to hgiher engine stall speeds and other problems. AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-40 and 20W-50 Motorcycle Oils have beefier anti-wear and detergent/dispersant packages with no friction modifiers, keeping motorcycles running smoothly and efficiently, while allowing for extended drain intervals of up to three times longer than manufacturers' recommendations.
