Ride Hard, Run Cool

Air cooled engines on motorcycles can really get hot when you’re stuck in traffic and the ambient temperature is already up near 30°C.

Synthetic motorcycle oils have a lower sump temperature than mineral oils due to their consistent oil particle sizes. AMSOILs oils are reported to run even cooler than the HD Screamin’ Eagle SYN3 oils. The reason for this is pretty simple.

AMSOIL makes oil, Harley-Davidson makes motorcycles.

Plan ahead for your bikes maintenance this fall with an AMSOIL dealer and save money compared to buying products off the shelf of your local retail stores.

You can shop online for AMSOIL motorcycle products for any make and model. You can look up the recommendations for your bike using the Motorcycle Products Look-up Tool. Harley owners can check out the suggested oils and cross references.
