AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-30
Motorcycle Oil (MCT) is a premium oil designed for those who demand
the absolute best lubrication for their motorcycles. AMSOIL MCT
is the result of extensive research, and it is specially formulated
to excel in all areas unique to motorcycles, including high engine
RPM, wet clutch lubrication, extreme pressure regions of gears
and rust common to short drives and storage.
AMSOIL MCT is multi-functional and fulfills the
requirements of both domestic and foreign motorcycles. It outperforms
other conventional and synthetic motorcycle oils.
AMSOIL, the leader in automotive synthetic lubrication,
produced the worlds first API-qualified synthetic motor
oil in 1972. Trust the extensive experience of AMSOIL The First
in Synthetics® to do the best job protecting your engine.
Reduces Friction, Heat and Wear
In high heat conditions, engine protection is
not sacrificed with AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oil. AMSOIL 10W-30
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 the operating conditions (see Four-Ball
Wear Test graph below). AMSOIL MCT is thermally (heat) stable
and contains maximum levels of oxidation inhibitor additives.
It is extremely resistant to volatility (see NOACK Volatility
graph on reverse) and engineered to prevent damaging sludge and
carbon deposits for superior engine cleanliness.
Provides Extreme Pressure Quality Protection
With AMSOIL MCT, there is no need for separate
transmission lubricants. It is shear stable and will not thin
out from mechanical activity. AMSOIL MCT performs like a gear
lube without the negative effects of extreme pressure additives,
such as poor wet-clutch performance.
Delivers Superior Rust and Corrosion 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 engine oils. Unlike many
motorcycle oils, AMSOIL MCT contains special anti-rust agents
that deliver superior rust protection. With its high TBN (see
TBN graph on reverse), AMSOIL 10W-30 provides greater protection
from acid corrosion and helps maintain internal engine cleanliness.
Provides Excellent Wet Clutch Performance
AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-30 Motorcycle Oil contains
no friction modifiers and promotes smooth shifting and positive
clutch engagement. It controls heat and prevents slippage and
glazing, promoting longer clutch life.
AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-30 Motorcycle Oil is recommended
for liquid- or air-cooled 4-stroke motorcycles, scooters, ATVs
and UTVs requiring an SAE 10W-30 fluid. It meets SAE 80, API GL-1
gear oil requirements and is recommended for transmissions on
both 4- and 2-stroke motorcycles. AMSOIL MCT is recommended for
Honda®, Yamaha®, Suzuki® and Kawasaki® motorcycles
and scooters, as well as Arctic Cat®, Can-Am®, Honda®,
Kawasaki® and Suzuki® ATVs and UTVs. Not recommended where
an API GL-4 or GL-5 gear oil is required.
AMSOIL Synthetic 10W-30 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.
Recommended for use up to twice the motorcycle
manufacturer change interval (miles/hours) or one year, whichever
comes first, in engines and transmissions. When using an engine
filter other than AMSOIL Ea, change the filter at standard intervals.
For off road use, change AMSOIL MCT
at motorcycle manufacturer intervals.
Racing or modified engines are excluded from
extended drain interval recommendations. Oil changes
are at the owner's discretion.
