AMSOIL 20W-50 Synthetic Motorcycle Oil
Harley-Davidson, Buell, Victory, Ducati, BMW, Aprilla and Triumph
motorcycles calling for a 15W-50 or 20W-50 viscosity, providing superior
protection in engines, transmissions and primary chaincases.
AMSOIL 10W-40 Synthetic Motorcycle Oil
(MCF) is recommended for Honda,
Kawasaki, Yamaha, Suzuki, BMW, Husqvarna and KTM motorcycles calling for
a 10W-40 or 20W-40 viscosity, providing superior protection in engines
Provides Extreme Pressure Quality Protection for Gears
With AMSOIL MCV, there is no need for separate transmission or primary chaincase lubricants. It is absolutely shear stable and will not thin out from mechanical activity. AMSOIL MCV performs like a gear lube without the negative effects of extreme pressure additives. In the FZG gear test, AMSOIL MCV achieved a perfect score with a “zero” wear rating (see photos below).
Improved Transmission Protection
AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oils not only provide superior protection
for motorcycle engines, they also provide superior gear protection,
meeting API GL-1 gear lube viscosity requirements. AMSOIL Synthetic
10W-40 Motorcycle Oil (MCF) meets SAE 80W-90 gear lube requirements,
while AMSOIL Synthetic 20W-50 Motorcycle Oil (MCV) meets SAE 90 gear
lube viscosity requirements.
Viscosity is the most important characteristic of a lubricant.
Motorcycle gears create a shearing effect that causes permanent oil
viscosity loss. This thinning effect reduces the oil's ability to
prevent metal-to-metal contact and wear. The stability and natural
operating temperature ranges of the premium synthetic base stocks used
to formulate AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oils eliminate shear and reduce
wear. AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oils exhibit absolute shear stability
as measured by the Kurt Orbon shear stability test.
The high temperatures and tight tolerances common to motorcycle
applications also affect viscosity. The High Temperature/High Shear (HTHS)
Test (ASTM D-4683) measures a lubricant's viscosity under severe high
temperature and shear conditions. The more resistant an oil is to high
temperature viscosity loss, the better it protects, and even a HTHS
difference of 0.1 cP makes a significant difference.
AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oils exhibit higher HTHS viscosities than
competing conventional and synthetic motorcycle oils. As seen in the
graphs, AMSOIL Synthetic 20W-50 and 10W-40 Motorcycle Oils displayed the
highest High Temperature/High Shear viscosities in their respective test
groups, providing motorcycle engines and transmissions operating in the
harshest conditions with superior protection against wear and viscosity
loss and eliminating the need for separate gear case oils as recommended
by some competitors. Synthetic 10W-40 may also be used in two-cycle
Reduces Friction, Heat and Wear
In high heat conditions, engine protection is not sacrificed with AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oil. It has the best high temperature film strength (see High Temperature
Viscosity Protection graph below) of all oils tested and contains a heavy treatment of anti-wear additives to reduce wear regardless of the operating conditions (see Wear Comparison graph on reverse). AMSOIL MCV is thermally (heat) stable and contains maximum levels of oxidation inhibitor additives. It is extremely resistant to breakdown and engineered to prevent damaging sludge and carbon deposits for superior engine cleanliness.

Excellent Wet Clutch Performance
Many motorcycles utilize a clutch that is immersed in the motor oil. The
friction modifiers present in many automotive motor oils and the extreme
pressure additives present in EP gear lubricants produce a low
coefficient of friction between the clutch discs and plates, resulting
in clutch slippage and glazing. Slippage leads to increased operating
temperatures and reduced clutch life. AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oils
are formulated without friction modifiers, providing positive clutch
engagement, longer equipment life and reduced temperatures. AMSOIL
Synthetic Motorcycle Oils meet the clutch compatibility requirements
mandated by JASO MA.
Outstanding Heat Resistance
Delivers Superior Rust & Corrosion Protection
Most motorcycles spend the majority of their lives either parked or in storage, but most motorcycle oils fail to address
rust & corrosion problems. Corrosion protection during storage and in humid conditions is essential to extending equipment life. AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oils are formulated with specialized additive technology that not only protect against corrosion and acids during operation, but also provide exceptional protection during storage. The ASTM D-1748 Rust Test measures a lubricant's ability to protect against rust and corrosion. A standard metal reference coupon is immersed in the test oil before being placed in a humidity cabinet for 24 hours at 120 degrees F. As seen in the photos, the reference coupon treated with AMSOIL 20W-50 Synthetic Motorcycle Oil showed no signs of rust and corrosion, while the competitor failed the test.

Motorcycles operate in demanding, high heat conditions that require robust high temperature deposit control additives. While many conventional oils break down and oxidize when faced with high temperatures, causing formation of carbon and sludge deposits, AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oils effectively withstand oil break-down and oxidation, keeping equipment running cooler and minimizing oil consumption, thickening and emissions. Air-cooled engines get especially hot while idling in traffic, commonly reaching temperatures up to 240 degrees Fahrenheit. The extra margin of protection provided by AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oils is especially important for hot running air cooled motorcycle engines.
High engine speeds and transmission gears in motorcycles churn the oil, suspending air and causing foam. When this oil and air mixture is drawn into a loaded area, the air compresses and decreases the thickness of the oil film, compromising wear protection. In addition, suspended air promotes oil oxidation, reducing its service life. AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oils greatly reduce foaming to provide long term lubricating protection in high speed, high RPM conditions.
Robust Additive Levels
Recent automotive motor oil regulations have limited certain additive levels, including the anti-wear additive known as ZDDP. ZDDP is an extremely effective anti-wear, anti-oxidant additive, and reducing its level results in compromised wear control and shortened service life. Because motorcycle applications require robust additive systems to control wear and oxidation, use of an automotive motor oil or an automotive motor oil re-labeled as a motorcycle oil compromises protection and performance. AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oils are overtreated with robust additive packages, including high levels of calcium, phosphorus, zinc and additional oxidation inhibitors, to extend oil life expectancy, provide unmatched engine cleanliness and greatly reduce wear.
AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oils are recommended for twice the manufacturer's recommended drain interval for on-road motorcycles.
The Four Ball Wear Test (ASTM D-4172) determines the wear protection properties of a lubricant. The smaller the average wear scar, the better the wear protection provided by the lubricant. AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oils produce significantly smaller wear scars than competing motorcycle oils, providing unsurpassed protection against engine wear, reducing maintenance costs and extending equipment life.
AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oils Cost Effective
AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oils provide excellent cost effectiveness and
are cost competitive with competing high end motorcycle oils. The unmatched
protection and performance provided by AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oils is
excellent insurance for today's expensive motorcycles and custom bikes.
AMSOIL Synthetic 20W-50 Motorcycle Oil is recommended for air or liquid cooled 4-stroke engines. It meets SAE 90, API GL-1 gear oil requirements and is recommended for transmissions and primary chaincases. AMSOIL MCV is recommended for Harley Davidson®,
Buell®, Victory®, Ducati®, Aprilia®, BMW®, Triumph® and other motorcycles where 15W-50 or 20W-50 engine oils or SAE 90, GL-1 gear oils are used. Not recommended for shaft drive hypoid gears or where an API GL-4 or GL-5 gear oil is required.
AMSOIL Synthetic 20W-50 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.
For “on road” use in engines, transmissions and primary chaincases, change AMSOIL MCV and AMSOIL engine oil filter at
the motorcycle manufacturer change interval
or one year
, whichever comes first. Change other brand oil filters at standard intervals.
For “off road” use in engines, transmissions and primary chaincases, change AMSOIL MCV at the standard motorcycle manufacturer change interval.
For racing or in engines modified from the original factory design, no change interval recommendation is made. Oil changes are at the owner’s discretion.
