MSOIL SYNTHETIC SAE 60 HIGH PERFORMANCE MOTORCYCLE OIL (MCS) is a premium oil designed for those
who demand the absolute best lubrication for their motorcycles. AMSOIL 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
Many Harleys with older engines and some big-bore bikes
require a 60-weight oil. While AMSOIL SAE 60 Super
Heavy Weight Synthetic Racing Oil (AHR) provides more
than adequate performance in these applications, it is not
formulated to address the issues specific to motorcycles.
In order to better address these issues, AMSOIL now
offers Synthetic SAE 60 High Performance Motorcycle Oil
(MCS). AMSOIL Synthetic SAE 60 Motorcycle Oil is formulated
specifically for motorcycles using the same
proven technology developed for AMSOIL 10W-30,
10W-40 and 20W-50 motorcycle oils. AMSOIL SAE 60
Motorcycle Oil is multi-functional and delivers premium
performance in motorcycle engines and transmissions.
AMSOIL SAE 60 Motorcycle Oil features superior heat resistance and wear
protection. It is shear-stable and helps maintain proper oil pressure in elevated
temperatures. AMSOIL Synthetic SAE 60 Motorcycle Oil 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. AMSOIL SAE 60 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
Synthetic 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. AMSOIL SAE 60 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 Motorcycle Oil, there is no need for a separate
transmission lubricant. It is shear-stable and will not thin out from mechanical
activity. AMSOIL SAE 60 Motorcycle Oil performs like a gear lube without the
negative effects of extreme-pressure additives.
Superior Rust Protection
Motorcycles are prone to rust from storage, humidity and short drives. Rust can
cause major damage such as roller bearing failure, uncontrolled 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 Motorcycle
Oil contains special anti-rust agents.
Excellent Wet-Clutch Performance
AMSOIL Synthetic SAE 60 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 the acids that can degrade clutch material.
AMSOIL Synthetic SAE 60 Motorcycle Oil is recommended for early-model air-cooled
V-Twin engines where a 60-weight motor oil is specified. SAE 60 motor oils are
commonly used in Harley-Davidson® Knucklehead, Panhead, Shovelhead and
big-bore motorcycles. AMSOIL Synthetic SAE 60 Motorcycle Oil meets API SG, SL/CF;
API GL-1; JASO MA/MA2 and ISO-L-EMA2.
AMSOIL Synthetic SAE 60 Motorcycle Oil is compatible with conventional and
synthetic motor oils. Mixing AMSOIL motor 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
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 discretion.
