AMSOIL Series 500 DOT 3 High-Performance Synthetic Brake Fluid and AMSOIL Series 600 DOT 4 Synthetic Racing Brake Fluid feature
pure base stocks and robust additives that resist boil-off and the effects
of water contamination more effectively than conventional brake fluids.
AMSOIL Synthetic Brake Fluids deliver superior high-temperature
performance in auto/light-truck, high-performance, racing and powersports
Water contaminates the brake system by seeping through microscopic pores in
flexible brake lines and seals and through the reservoir fill cap when opened. Once
inside, it quickly works to corrode brake parts, lines and seals, leading to eventual
system failure. AMSOIL Synthetic Brake Fluids keep water in suspension, slowing its
corroding effects. They lubricate and protect intricate braking components despite
the inevitable water absorption associated with braking systems, delivering long-lasting
The extreme pressure and high heat common to braking can push conventional
brake fluid beyond its boiling point, causing it to vaporize, or boil-off. Even more
problematic, water contamination can drop the boiling point of conventional fluid
below safe standards, accelerating the rate at which it boils off. This leads to a
spongy or unresponsive feeling in the brake pedal. In contrast, the unique chemistry
behind AMSOIL Synthetic Brake Fluids increase their boiling point temperatures well
beyond Department of Transportation (DOT) standards even when contaminated
with 3.7 percent water (see chart). They maintain a stable viscosity over a wide
temperature range and flow easily at the high pressures generated in today's
automotive brake systems to deliver consistent, safe braking. AMSOIL Series 600
DOT 4 Synthetic Racing Brake Fluid features a wet equilibrium reflux boiling point
(Wet ERBP) nearly 100°F higher than the DOT minimum, making it ideal for high-performance
cars, motorcycles and vehicles used for towing.
*Dry equilibrium reflux boiling point (ERBP)–the boiling point of new,
freshly opened brake fluid.
**Wet ERBP–the boiling point of brake fluid having absorbed 3.7 percent
water. Only 3.7 percent water contamination is often sufficient
to reduce a DOT 3 fluid’s boiling point below the DOT minimum.

The aggressive driving conditions and sudden stops common to
some on- and off-road motorcycle and ATV applications can
literally boil conventional brake fluid, leaving behind a discolored,
dirty solution that can promote deposit formation and corrosion
on braking components. Worn brake fluid also fails to
deliver adequate protection against water ingress common
to powersports equipment exposed to the elements.
The synthetic base stocks and superior
additives in AMSOIL Synthetic Brake Fluids
excel in demanding powersports applications,
providing reliable brake lever and pedal
response, corrosion protection and longevity as
compared to conventional brake fluids.
AMSOIL Synthetic Brake Fluids are the
product of choice for racing, heavy
hauling or leisure powersports

Refer to your owner's manual regarding the proper change
interval for your brake fluid. If no information is available,
AMSOIL recommends changing DOT 4 brake fluid every two
years. DOT 3 brake fluids typically have a longer life span, so
be sure to follow the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended
To determine the correct DOT classification for powersports
applications, consult your owner’s manual.
