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.
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.
