Learn the facts about Harley-Davidson Oil

 

By A.J. Amatuzio,

President and CEO of AMSOIL INC.

 

"A situation my daughter, Lyn, told me about recently got me to thinking about how good it is to be able to blend our own oils and have complete control over our own product quality.

 

Lyn loves to ride motorcycles. She recently purchased a Harley-Davidson bike and took it to the local Harley shop to have our new AMSOIL Motorcycle Oil installed. The mechanic took issue with her not using the oil Harley-Davidson sells, saying, "I'll use AMSOIL motor oil when AMSOIL starts making motorcycles!"

 

How would you answer a challenge like that? I was pleased to hear Lyn's response. She said, " I'll start using Harley-Davidson motor oil when Harley starts making oil!"

 

Perfect! The fact is that Harley-Davidson, like so many other "brands" of oil, contract with one or more oil companies to make their lubricants. Often, the decision as to who actually makes a private labeled product is based on low bid, and like almost everything manufactured by a low bidder, short cuts are taken in order to meet the low price.

 

I understand that Harley-Davidson has contracted with one company for a number of years to make their oil. That's good, but it still doesn't change the fact that they make motorcycles, not oil. Now consider all the private label oils out there. Every manufacturer that makes equipment with an engine has it's own name on an oil bottle. That includes all the major auto manufacturers, the makers of motorcycles, ATV's, snowmobiles, farm equipment, you name it, they all have oils. But none of these equipment manufacturers actually make an oil. They sell oil to make more money, and then they often price these oils well above the going rate for competitive lubricants because, like Harley-Davidson, they can specify or create the impression that only their oil be used in their equipment.

 

Now there's nothing wrong in having a goal to make money, but let's get real here. Why would anyone want to use a product manufactured down to a price rather than up to high quality standards? We have tested a number of these private label motor oils and two-cycle oils and we found that many are mediocre quality products. None of them even comes close to performing as well as AMSOIL lubricants, and that's a fact!

 

I'm not taking shots at Harley-Davidson. They make good motorcycles. And I understand their concern that normal automotive oils not meeting API C specs shouldn't be used in their bikes. But when they imply that AMSOIL Motorcycle Oils is not as good as their brand or I hear that one of their dealers recommended not using AMSOIL, I get a little hostile. Those kinds of statements are the very reason we introduced our motorcycle oils in the first place. And when we say use our 20W-50 motorcycle oil in V-Twin motorcycle engines, that definitely includes Harley-Davidson motorcycles.

 

 

There is a good reason why AMSOIL Motorcycle Oils protect so well against wear. They are formulated with significantly higher levels of zinc and phosphorus, which when included in proper formulation with other high quality additives, provide superior wear protection at the high operating temperatures typical of motorcycles. In addition, synthetic oils inherently reduce sump temperatures so the engines actually run cooler.

 

The fact is, Harley would do well to have AMSOIL make their oils for them. Then they could be assured that their oil was indeed a superior product. As it is, there may be absolutely nothing wrong with their oil for use in average service, but I guarantee you as the oil temperature gets hotter, like it does when sitting in traffic on asphalt on a hot summer day, the Harley-Davidson with AMSOIL in the crankcase is going to be far better protected and run far cooler than the bike with H-D oil in it. There's just no two ways about it!

Questions and Answers about AMSOIL

Synthetic SAE 60 Motorcycle Oil (MCS)


What is the primary market for AMSOIL Synthetic SAE 60 High Performance Motorcycle Oil ?
Answer:
The primary applications include older Harley-Davidson® motorcycles (Panheads, Knuckleheads and Shovelheads) and other air-cooled, large bore bikes.

What is the difference between AMSOIL 20W-50 Motorcycle Oil and AMSOIL SAE 60 Motorcycle Oil?
Answer:
AMSOIL SAE 60 Motorcycle Oil is formulated with the same combination of additives and synthetic base stocks that are used in other popular AMSOIL motorcycle oils; however, it is designed with a higher viscosity base oil combination resulting in better high temperature/high shear values for use in applications that require a 60 weight engine oil.

What specific end-user benefits does AMSOIL SAE 60 Motorcycle Oil provide?
Answer:
AMSOIL SAE 60 Motorcycle Oil helps maintain oil pressure in the highly stressed conditions of air-cooled bikes, including excessive idling, high ambient temperatures and hard riding. Extreme oil temperature in air-cooled, and sometimes liquid-cooled, engines is an issue that results in overheating or insufficient wear protection. AMSOIL SAE 60 Motorcycle Oil offers the same overall superior wear control, foam control, viscosity stability, wet clutch compatibility, reduced oil consumption, and storage protection bikers have come to expect with AMSOIL motorcycle oils.

What package sizes will be offered, and what will be the corresponding product code designations?
Answer:
Package Size Product Code
Quart-Single MCSQT-EA
Quart-Case MCSQT-CA

Can AMSOIL SAE 60 Motorcycle Oil be used in modified or racing equipment?
Answer:
Yes, as long as it meets the viscosity recommendation of the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) or engine builder.

Many motorcycles use the same oil in both the engine and transmission. Can AMSOIL SAE 60 Motorcycle Oil be used in both as well?

Answer:
Yes. AMSOIL SAE 60 Motorcycle Oil is exceptionally shear stable and designed for use in many transmission and gear applications in addition to engines. It should only be used, however, in applications calling for an SAE 60 motor oil or SAE 140 API GL-1 fluid.

Can AMSOIL SAE 60 Motorcycle Oil be used in wet clutch applications?
Answer:
Yes. AMSOIL SAE 60 Motorcycle Oil contains no friction modifiers and meets the wet clutch frictional categories JASO MA/MA2 and ISO-L-EMA2 as outlined in JASO standard T903:2006 and ISO standard 24254:2007.

TBN 10.16 11.06


Can AMSOIL SAE 60 Motorcycle Oil be used in shaft drive applications that call for either an SAE 80 or 90 fluid?
Answer:
No. Shaft drive applications normally call for a fluid meeting the service classification API GL-4 or GL-5. AMSOIL SAE 60 Motorcycle Oil is rated API GL-1.

What is the oil drain recommendation for AMSOIL SAE 60 Motorcycle Oil?
Answer:
For bikes equipped with filtration and used on road, the service life is double that of most recommended OEM intervals. In motorcycles without oil filtration or with systems modified with aftermarket parts used strictly off-road or in competition, AMSOIL does not support extended oil drain intervals.

 


Frequent Asked Questions

 

What AMSOIL motor oils are recommended for Harley-Davidson motorcycles?
Answer: AMSOIL SAE 20W-50 Synthetic Motorcycle Oil (MCV) and Synthetic SAE 60 Motorcycle Oil (MCS) are the most commonly recommended oils for Harley applications. Check the AMSOIL Motorcycle Look-up Guide for specific questions.


What is the difference between Formula 4-Stroke® 10W-40 Synthetic Scooter Oil and SAE 10W-40 Synthetic Motorcycle Oil?
Answer: AMSOIL 10W-40 Synthetic Motor Oil (MCF) contains an additive package that is designed for the extreme pressures and high temperatures common in motorcycle applications. Its high TBN retention also makes it the appropriate choice for extended drain intervals. In scooter applications, AMSOIL 10W-40 Synthetic Scooter Oil (ASO) is the more economical choice.

 

What is the recommended transmission lubricant for a Harley Davidson Big Twin?
Answer: In newer Big Twins, AMSOIL recommends AMSOIL 20W-50 Synthetic Motorcycle Oil (MCV) or SEVERE GEAR® Synthetic Extreme Pressure Lubricant 75W-110 (SVT). In older Harleys, such as Knuckleheads, Panheads and Shovelheads, AMSOIL Synthetic SAE 60 Motorcycle Oil (MCS) is recommended.


What is the recommended transmission lubricant for a Harley-Davidson Sportster?
Answer: AMSOIL recommends 20W-50 Motorcycle Oil (MCV) for the Harley-Davidson Sportster.


Are AMSOIL motorcycle oils wet clutch compatible?
Answer: Yes. AMSOIL Motorcycle Oils meet JASO MA2 friction requirements for use in wet clutch applications.


Is AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic Chaincase Lubricant acceptable to use in the primary of a Harley Davidson Big Twin?
Answer: AMSOIL Series 2000 Synthetic Chaincase Lubricant (TCC) does not have the correct viscosity for use in Harley-Davidson primaries, and is not recommended for these applications. AMSOIL recommends a product such as AMSOIL Synthetic 20W-50 (MCV) Motorcycle oil for Harley-Davidson primaries.


How can AMSOIL recommend 20W-50 Synthetic Motorcycle Oil for use in the primary and transmission in certain motorcycles?
Answer: AMSOIL Motorcycle Oils are engineered with additive packages specifically designed to provide higher performance in motorcycle engines, transmissions and primaries.


What is the oil change interval for AMSOIL motorcycle oils?
Answer: AMSOIL motorcycle oils are engineered to provide protection up to twice the manufacturer's recommended change interval or one year, whichever comes first.

 

For Big Twin Harley-Davidson transmissions, follow the Harley-Davidson recommended drain interval for synthetic oil up to 20,000 miles or one year, whichever comes first. Unless you are using an AMSOIL Ea air filter, change the filter based on the manufacturer's recommended intervals.


Are AMSOIL motorcycle oils different from AMSOIL automotive oils?
Answer: Yes. In addition to withstanding extreme pressure, protecting against rust and withstanding high temperatures, motorcycle oils must be compatible with wet clutches. AMSOIL motorcycle oils are designed to meet the unique frictional requirements necessary for wet clutch compatibility and provide maximum protection and performance in these applications.


Why does AMSOIL offer more than one viscosity motorcycle oil?
Answer: AMSOIL offers motorcycle oils in different viscosities to accommodate the differences between motorcycle models and manufacturers. Just as in automotive applications, motorcycle engines require specific oil viscosities for optimal performance and protection based on the components and tolerances in the engine. Check the AMSOIL on-line look-up guide for specific recommendations.
