Harley Getting Hot?
While riding season here in Iowa is drawing to a close, many take the season's end as a time to get all of the fluids changed in their bikes. This is a great time to get this done, too. During the life of your engines oil, the oil becomes acidic. This is the result of certain contaminants being suspended in the oil. So, it is best to get fresh oil in prior to the winter storage. Amsoil is the perfect choice for your next oil change. Amsoil is exceptional at dealing with the high heat generated by large, V-Twin engines. See the test below:
This is a great time to step up to Amsoil! We have many different motorcycle specific motor oils, Transmission and Primary fluids for Harley Davidson, several ATV/UTV specific oils and transmission fluids and the first fully synthetic 20w-40 motor oil for the Victory and Indian V-Twins. We even have a full synthetic 10W-40 Scooter specific oil. Personally, I have been using the 0W-40 4-Stroke Power Sports oil in my BMW K1600GTL for the past 12,000 miles with outstanding results. In addition, I've been using the Amsoil Severe Gear 75W-90 gear oil in the K1600s final drive. I have certainly noticed much better shifting and smoothness with the 0W-40. Final drive fluid looks new at the 6000 mile changes. Let me know if you need more information on what your bike needs.
