The First in Synthetics® to do the best job protecting your engine.
Reduces Friction, Heat and Wear
In high heat conditions, AMSOIL Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil exceeds the standard
for high-temperature film strength to deliver excellent wear protection. It 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 operating conditions. AMSOIL
Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil is thermally (heat) stable and contains maximum levels
of oxidation-inhibitor additives. It is extremely resistant to volatility and is engineered to
prevent damaging sludge and carbon deposits for superior engine cleanliness.
Smooth, Confident Shifts
AMSOIL Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil contains no friction modifiers and promotes
smooth shifting and positive clutch engagement. It is engineered to control heat and
prevent slippage and glazing, promoting longer clutch life.
High-rpm operation causes some motor oils to foam. When foam bubbles travel
between gear teeth or engine components, they collapse, allowing metal surfaces to
contact, causing wear. AMSOIL Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil contains advanced
anti-foam additives that help prevent foam, allowing riders to confidently push their
bikes to the limit.

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 motor oils.
Unlike many motorcycle oils, AMSOIL Synthetic Metric
Motorcycle Oil contains special anti-rust agents that deliver
superior rust protection. With its high 11.1 total base number
(TBN), AMSOIL Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil provides
greater protection from acid corrosion and helps maintain
internal engine cleanliness.
AMSOIL 10W-40 Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil is
engineered for motorcycles that require 10W-40 motorcycle oil,
including those made by Honda, Yamaha, Kawasaki, Suzuki,
Triumph, Can-Am and BMW.* Recommended for transmissions
requiring an API GL-1 fluid. Not recommended where an API
GL-4 or GL-5 gear oil is required.
Recommended for use up to twice the motorcycle
manufacturer-recommended change interval (miles/hours) or
one year, whichever comes first, in engines and transmissions.
When using an oil filter other than AMSOIL Ea® Motorcycle
Oil Filter, change the filter at standard intervals. Racing or
modified engines are excluded from extended drain interval
recommendations; oil changes are at the owner's discretion.
