AMSOIL 20W-40 100% Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil



AMSOIL 15W-60 and 20W-40 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil provides Indian and Victory riders the confidence and security that comes with receiving maximum protection and performance for their bikes. It presents a premium alternative to higher-priced manufacturer-branded oils.

MVIReduces Friction, Heat and Wear
AMSOIL Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil is engineered to protect critical components in high-heat conditions. It exceeds the standard for high-temperature film strength to deliver excellent wear protection (see graph) and contains a heavy treatment of anti-wear additives to reduce wear regardless of operating conditions. AMSOIL Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil is thermally (heat) stable and contains maximum levels of oxidation-inhibitor additives. It is extremely resistant to breakdown and is engineered to prevent damaging sludge and carbon deposits for superior engine cleanliness.

Provides Anti-Wear Protection for Gears and Chains
AMSOIL Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil is shear stable and resists thinning from mechanical activity. It performs like a gear lube without the negative effects of extreme-pressure additives, such as poor wet-clutch performance.

Delivers Superior Rust 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 motor oils. Unlike many motorcycle oils, AMSOIL Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil contains special anti-rust agents, providing outstanding protection against rust and corrosion.

Catalytic-Converter Compatible
AMSOIL Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil meets the requirements for emission-system protection and is designed for use in motorcycles with catalytic converters.

Provides Excellent Wet-Clutch Performance
AMSOIL Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil delivers the confidence of quiet, smooth shifting and positive clutch engagement. It controls heat and helps prevent slippage and glazing.

APPLICATIONS
Use AMSOIL 20W-40 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil in motorcycles that require 20W-40 motorcycle oil and any of the specifications listed below, including those made by Victory* and Indian*.

  • JASO MA
  • API SM
  • ILSAC GF-4

COMPATIBILITY
AMSOIL Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil is compatible with other conventional and synthetic motor oils. Adding other oils, however, will shorten the life expectancy of AMSOIL motor oils and reduce their 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 V-Twin Motorcycle Oil.

SERVICE LIFE
For on-road use in engines and transmissions: When paired with an AMSOIL Ea® Motorcycle Oil Filter, AMSOIL 20W-40 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil is capable of providing premium protection for up to 2X the motorcycle manufacturer-recommended change interval or one year, whichever comes first. Change other brand oil filters at standard intervals.

For off-road use in engines and transmissions: Change AMSOIL 20W-40 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil at the standard motorcycle manufacturer-recommended 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.

    Amsoil is God approved!
    By  Lee,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Grand Bay, AL  on  February 17, 2024
    One day about a year ago I watched a pro video about using an oil cooler. I have a 2006 CVO Fat Boy 103. Anyways, I went to the store for just after watching the video to buy something unrelated. As I was walking out of the store, I was thinking about the need for an oil cooler to keep engine temps down and the Holy Spirit reminded me that I was using synthetic motor oil. And I suddenly realized that I have all the protection I need using Amsoil. Now the Lord knows bikes inside an out. He's proven that to me several times, all the way from engine temps to front fork triple trees to a loose leaky valve stem.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    Will Use Nothing but Amsoil !
    By  DAN,  a  Verified Buyer  from  Central Florida  on  February 04, 2024
    Began using Amsoil 20W40 in my Indian Thunderstroke 116 (factory 116 with oil cooler) after trying a few other oils during the first 10K miles. By comparison, when using the OEM Indian oil, I experienced what I would call significant valve train "noise" at certain RPMs and also very noticeable transmission noise. I tried Castrol V-Twin full synthetic 20W50 during the summer here in Florida which quieted the valve train noise but after less than 1K miles I developed one sticky lifter that wouldn't pump up until the engine ran for a few minutes. At the suggestion of a friend, I started using Amsoil 20W40, formulated for Indian and Victory motorcycles. WOW, what a difference is all I can say. I immediately experienced a much quieter engine and transmission. The valve train noise is gone all together and the transmission is super quiet and shifts like butter. After only a few hundred miles with the Amsoil, my sticky lifter issue resolved itself completely and has not returned. I now have 17K on my bike and will use nothing but Amsoil. I highly recommend Amsoil 20W40 to all owners air cooled Thunderstroke engines, it's literally the best I've ever used.
    Bottom Line
    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
