AMSOIL Smooths Out New Motorcycle Engine

LOYD BLASZ OF NORTH VANCOUVER, British Columbia, found AMSOIL Synthetic Motor Oils and lubricants solved his problems with a new motorcycle, and now he's a lifelong user.

He recently bought a Honda Shadow VT750C motorcycle. "Beign new, things are tight, so when I had some shifting problems and a clutch that was displaying excessive grabbiness, I did not think much of it," Blasz daid. "But after a very respectable break-in period went by, at just over 8000 km (5000 miles), everything was broken in and loosened up. Yet I still had a clutch that would often grab resulting in lurching or stalling the engine if I did not give it enough gas to get the RPMs up to prevent stalling in stop and go city rush hour driving."

The clutch checked out to be properly adjusted. Another problem was a loud clunking sound when he put the motorcycle in gear. "Often I thought 'this cannot be all that good on the gears.'"

He was using conventional motorcycle oils up to this time and decided he'd check into synthetics. Blasz researched synthetic motorcycle oils on the internet and found AMSOIL Synthetic 20W-50 Motorcycle Oil seemed the best suited for his needs, he said.

"After putting a new filter on my bike I poured in AMSOIL Synthetic 20W-50 Motorcycle Oil and started it up," Blasz said. "Within about 15 minutes of riding I was noticing something was different with the engine. To my surprise, the clutch was as smooth as silk when I was letting it out. Gone was the sudden lurch from the clutch grabbing when it was almost fully engaged. The loud gear-snapping clunk became a soft clunk of going into gear."

After about 2000 km (1250 miles) with AMSOIL 20W-50 Synthetic Motorcycle Oil all, the "little annoyances disappeared," he said. "I have yet to experience a shifting problem gearing down when sitting at a red light." Since then Blasz has changed over the rear drive units to AMSOIL Synthetic 75W-90 Gear Lube.

"I am so pleased with the results that I have recommended your oil to my friends with motorcycles and even asked the shop where I have my bike serviced to stock AMSOIL products as this is the only oil I wish to use from her on in," Blasz said.
