Harley-Davidson/AMSOIL Oil Chart
AMSOIL SAE 60 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil is a premium oil designed
for those who demand the absolute best lubrication for their motorcycles.
AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oil 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. SAE 60 Synthetic V-Twin
Motorcycle Oil features superior heat resistance and wear protection.
It is shear-stable and helps maintain proper oil pressure in elevated temperatures.
It stops viscosity breakdown (loss), protects gears and chains,
and meets SAE 140, API GL-1 gear oil requirements. It is multi-functional
and fulfills the requirements of both domestic and foreign motorcycles.
SAE 60 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil outperforms other conventional
and synthetic motorcycle oils.
AMSOIL, the leader in synthetic lubrication, produced the world's 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
Reduces Friction, Heat and Wear
In high-heat conditions, engine
protection is not sacrificed with AMSOIL
SAE 60 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil.
It has exceptional high-temperature film
strength and contains a heavy treatment
of anti-wear additives to reduce wear
regardless of operating conditions.
Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil 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.
Extreme-Pressure Protection for Gears
With AMSOIL Synthetic V-Twin
Motorcycle Oil, there is no need for a
separate transmission lubricant. It is
shear-stable and will not thin out from
mechanical activity. SAE 60 Synthetic
V-Twin Motorcycle Oil performs like a
gear lube without the negative effects of
Superior Rust Protection
Motorcycles are prone to rust from
storage, humidity and short drives.
Rust can cause major damage such as
roller-bearing failure, 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 Synthetic
V-Twin Motorcycle Oil contains special
- Outstanding wet-clutch
- Exceptional wear protection
- Promotes cooler operation
Excellent Wet-Clutch Performance
AMSOIL SAE 60 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil contains no
friction modifiers and promotes smooth shifting and positive
clutch engagement. It controls heat and helps prevent slippage
and glazing, while its high TBN helps improve clutch life by
resisting acids that can degrade clutch material.
Use in big-bore motorcycles that require SAE 60 motorcycle oil
and any of the specifications listed below, including early model
Harley-Davidsons* equipped with Knucklehead, Panhead* or
Shovelhead engines. Use where SAE 90, API GL-1 gear oil is
JASO MA/MA-2 • API SL, SG/CF/CG-4 • ISO-L-EMA2
AMSOIL SAE 60 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil is compatible
with other synthetic and conventional motor oils. Mixing AMSOIL
oils with other oils, however, will shorten the oil’s life expectancy
and reduce its performance benefits. AMSOIL does not support
extended drain intervals where oils have been mixed.
Aftermarket oil additives are not recommended for use with
AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oil.
Recommended for use up to twice the motorcycle's
manufacturer-recommended change interval (miles/hours) or one
year, whichever comes first, in engines and transmissions. For
Big Twin* Harley-Davidson transmissions only, follow the Harley-Davidson recommended drain interval for synthetic oil of up to
20,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first. When using
an engine filter other than an AMSOIL Ea® Motorcycle Oil Filter,
change the filter at standard intervals.
For off-road use, change AMSOIL Synthetic Motorcycle Oil at the
motorcycle's manufacturer-recommended intervals.
Racing or modified engines are excluded from extended drain
interval recommendations. Oil changes are at the owner's
