MCF MCT and 10W-30 Motorcycle OilsSuperior Wear Protection for Motorcycles.
AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oils not only provide superior protection for motorcycle engines, they also provide superior gear protection, meeting API GL-1 and SAE 80 (MCT), SAE 80W-90 (MCF) and SAE 90 (MCV) gear lube 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. AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oils exhibit absolute shear stability as measured by the industry-recognized Kurt Orbahn shear stability test (ASTM D-6278). They provide superior protection compared to competitive oils and eliminate the need for separate gearbox or chaincase oils.
Many motorcycles use 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/MA2 and ISO standard ISO-L-EMA2.
Most motorcycles spend the majority of their lives either parked or in storage, but most motorcycle oils fail to address 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 protects against corrosion and acids during operation, but also provides 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° 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 breakdown 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 of 270° F or higher. 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. The Foam Tendency Test (ASTM D-892) is divided into three sequences. In each sequence, air is bubbled through the AMSOIL before & AMSOIL after 5 minutes oil for five minutes and the foam generated is measured in millimeters immediately following the test. At the end of the sequence, the oil is allowed to settle for 10 minutes and the remaining foam is measured again. The photos at right show AMSOIL 20W-50 and Lucas High Performance Motorcycle Oils before one sequence of the Foam Tendency Test and five minutes after completion of that sequence. AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oils provide outstanding foam control and are formulated with anti-foam agents that allow for quick air release. They provide long-term lubricating protection in high-speed, high-RPM conditions.
AMSOIL Motorcycle Oils are formulated with robust anti-wear additive packages to provide superior wear protection and longer equipment life. They are designed to withstand the hard-pounding, high-revving environment found inside motorcycle engines. AMSOIL Motorcycle Oils provide dependable protection for virtually all motorcycles.
AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oils provide excellent cost-effectiveness and are cost competitive with competing high-end motorcycle oils. The premium protection and performance provided by AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oils is excellent insurance for today’s expensive motorcycles and custom bikes.

Twin Air air filters provide motorcycles and ATVs with maximum intake protection in any riding conditions. The coarse open-porefoam catches airborne dirt, grime and sand, while the fine open-pore innerfoam acts as a second filter to trap the smallest particles while ensuring maximum air passage. Twin Air air filters are constructed with an exclusively-formulated adhesive that withstands repeated cleanings. Their thick, flat-foam greaseless sealing ring ensures maximum contact with the airbox while acting as a breathable gasket for increased air passage. Unlike competitors’ two-piece designs, the fused outer and inner elements of Twin Air air filters prevent dirt and grime from being lodged between layers, preventing trapped particles from restricting airflow and keeping even the tiniest dirt particles from entering an engine and destroying cylinders and piston rings.
AMSOIL also offers several Twin Air filter cleaning and oiling products. Liquid Power Filter Oil starts thin for a deep, even penetration, then dries to an even coating. This high-tack shield traps dirt, grit and dust.

Each kit includes a Twin Air cleaning tub, oiling tub, Liquid Dirt Remover, Liquid Power Filter Oil, contact cleaner and rubber gloves.
The cleaning tub is resealable and comes with a filter tray that allows dirt to sink to the bottom, away from filters. The oiling tub allows filters to be submerged for easy, even oiling. When not in use, the oiling tub is resealable, enabling users to save unused filter oil.
The filtration media in Ea Motorcycle Air Filters (EaAM) is pleated and has epoxy-coated wire on the face and back of the media for additional strength and stiffness. High-quality plastisol potting compounds bond the pleat packs to the plastic or aluminum side plates. The S&S-style round filters are manufactured with high-quality plastisol that bonds the media to the wire backing and sealing area.
The synthetic nanofiber media featured in AMSOIL Ea Motorcycle Air Filters has sub-micron diameters and small inter-fiber spaces, resulting in more contaminants being captured on the surface of the media and lower restriction. Cellulose, wetted gauze and foam filters are larger and have larger spaces between the media that cause contaminants to load in the depth of the filter, resulting in airflow path plugging, higher restriction and lower capacity.
AMSOIL Ea Motorcycle Air Filters are cleanable, providing excellent protection and long service life. AMSOIL Ea Motorcycle Air Filters should be cleaned every year or according to operating conditions. Operation in extremely dusty or dirty environments may require more frequent cleaning. Ea Motorcycle Air Filters should be changed every four years.
AMSOIL Ea Motorcycle Air Filters are cleaned in the same manner as AMSOIL Ea Air Filters for cars and light trucks: with a vacuum or shop air.
To clean with a vacuum, place the filter on a flat surface and carefully vacuum the filter media on the dirty side where the incoming airflow enters the filter. Using a vacuum with too much suction may damage the filter.
To clean with shop air, hold the filter with one hand and carefully blow the filter media at a 45-degree angle on the clean side of the filter using low-pressure (15 to 20 psi) shop air. Using too much air pressure will damage the filter media.
AMSOIL provides Ea Motorcycle Air Filters for Harley-Davidson, Honda and virtually all other domestic and metric applications, plus specialty filters for S&S carburetors and air cleaner housings, Baron Big Air Intakes, Screamin’ Eagle and many more.
