A reader asks: I’ve got a 2019 Harley-Davidson Street Glide with the Milwaukee-8 107 engine. When using conventional 20W-50 oil, I hear a valve ticking noise at about 2100 RPM. Will AMSOIL Synthetic 20W-50 cure this noise?

Please note that we haven’t personally witnessed this, nor is this a claim made by AMSOIL Inc. But this is customer feedback we have received regarding the use of AMSOIL 20W-50 in the the Milwaukee-Eight engine.
Why Would AMSOIL V-Twin Synthetic 20W-50 Make The Milwaukee-Eight Motor Run Quieter?
It would have something to do with the robust additive package in this synthetic 20W-50. AMSOIL formulated this oil to provide a powerful anti-wear barrier. This no-doubt contributes to overall smoother and quieter v-twin operation.
