AMSOIL Synthetic 20W-50 V-Twin Motorcycle OilAMSOIL has changed the label and name of their hugely popular synthetic 20W-50 motorcycle oil for the 2016 riding season. This product will now be known as AMSOIL Synthetic 20W-50 V-Twin Motorcycle Oil. The formula and product code (MCV) remains unchanged.

The thousands of riders who swear by “MCV” AMSOIL 20W-50 V-Twin won’t have a problem with the formula remaining constant. AMSOIL 20W-50 V-Twin is famous for delivering smoother operation, cooler operating temps and  improved shifting in Harley-Davidson, BMW and other motorcycles requiring a 20W-50 oil.

How Good Is AMSOIL 20W-50 Motorcycle Oil?

Aside from the great customer feedback the we consistently receive for AMSOIL V-Twin 20W-50, our favorite illustration of its capabilities is a dyno room torture test that AMSOIL ran a few years back. In this test, they worked-over an air-cooled Harley-Davidson Dyna Street Bob in the dead air of a dyno room for over 70 minutes. At the climax of the test, the back cylinder temperature reached a blistering 530°F! The used oil was then analyzed and it was barely distinguishable from brand new oil. The conclusion is that if AMSOIL 20W-50 can breeze through an epic roasting like this, it will have no problem keeping your engine safe and sound all summer.

Other Real-World Benefits Of AMSOIL Synthetic V-Twin 20W-50

Aside from being a great engine oil, AMSOIL Synthetic V-Twin 20-50 is formulated to provide improved shifting and excellent protection for transmissions and primary chaincases. It is a convenient oil for “all three holes” in Harley Davidson motorcycles.

So we’ve covered the fantastic performance and protection offered by AMSOIL V-Twin 20W-50 during riding season, but did you know that it is also equipped with stout anti-rust ingredients that protect your engine during winter storage?

AMSOIL Synthetic 20W-50 V-Twin Motorcycle Oil is a cost-effective upgrade for any motorcycle that requires a 20W-50. Contact us for a wholesale price list using the form on this page and treat your bike this summer!

AMSOIL V-Twin Synthetic Transmission OilAMSOIL has released two more synthetic oils for the motorcycle market. The new products are AMSOIL V-Twin Synthetic Transmission Oil and AMSOIL V-Twin Synthetic Primary Chaincase Oil. As the names imply, these products are specific to V-Twin motorcycles like Harley Davidson, Triumph and Indian motorcycles (produced before the 2013 model year).

Why Did AMSOIL Choose to Make Specific Primary Chaincase and Transmission Oils For V-Twin Motorcycles?

Apparently when it came to Triumph and Indian motorcycle models that have three separate sumps (one each for engine oil, primary chaincase fluid and transmission fluid), AMSOIL did not have suitable fluids for the primary and gearbox. These new transmission and chaincase fluids fill these small gaps in their product offerings.

There are also some motorcycle owners who prefer to use specialized primary chaincase and transmission oil in these components instead of motorcycle engine oil.

AMSOIL V-Twin Synthetic Primary Chaincase OilShould Harley-Davidson Owners Switch To These New Products?

For years, AMSOIL has been recommending their MCV Synthetic 20W-50 Motorcycle Oil in the engine, primaries and transmissions of modern day Harley-Davidson motorcycles. The effectiveness of their 20W-50 in all three holes has been proven over millions of miles by thousands of Harley owners. The feedback on MCV 20W-50 from our Harley customers has been nothing short of spectacular.

There is no advantage in terms of performance or wear protection in switching to these new products over MCV 20W-50 in the primary chaincase and transmission of your Harley. It is truly a sideways move. Apparently the new Transmission Oil may offer modestly quieter performance in some transmissions. It’s your call as to whether this trumps the luxury of using a single (very proven) product throughout your bike.

What Are The Benefits Of AMSOIL Synthetic Primary Chaincase Oil?

  • Provides cool, quiet operation
  • Improves clutch operation
  • Fights clutch slippage
  • Combats metal-to-metal wear
  • Can remain in service for 10,000 miles (16,000 km)

What Are The Benefits Of AMSOIL Synthetic V-Twin Transmission Oil?

  • Smooths out shifting
  • Eases gear selection
  • Dampens gearbox noises
  • Lowers friction for cooler operation
  • Maintains its viscosity for long-lasting wear protection
  • Delivers an ultra-long service life of 20,000 miles (32,000 km)

What Is The Viscosity Of The New Primary Chaincase and Transmissions Fluids?

The V-Twin Transmission Oil is an SAE 110 and Primary Chaincase Fluid falls into the SAE 90 range. These products cannot be substituted for one another. Each has a specific additive package designed exclusively for their intended purpose,  so do not use the transmission fluid in the primary and do not use the primary fluid in the transmission.

Regarding MCV 20W-50 Motorcycle Engine Oil, keep in mind that engine oils and gear lubes are shown on a different scale (so you don’t accidentally pour gear oil into the engine). MCV 20W-50 and these new oils do share a similar viscosity and that’s one of the reasons why why MCV 20W-50 is quite suitable in primary and transmission use in Harley-Davidson motorcycles.

Kinematic Viscosity @ 100°C

  • AMSOIL MCV 20W-50- 20.4 cST
  • V-Twin Transmission Oil- 20.7 cST
  • V-Twin Primary Oil- 18.7 cST

AMSOIL Synthetic 20W-40 V-Twin Motorcycle OilAMSOIL has been diligently expanding their motorcycle oil product line this winter and the latest offering is a synthetic 20W-40. New AMSOIL Synthetic 20W-40 V-Twin Motorcycle Oil is specific mostly to Victory and late-model Indian motorcycles.

All Victory motorcycles and Indians (produced after the 2013 model year) have a common sump, meaning that the engine and transmission share the same oil. AMSOIL’s previous oil recommendation for these motorcycles was their 10W-40 Synthetic Motorcycle Oil.

Frequently Asked Questions About New AMSOIL 20W-40 Synthetic Motorcycle Oil

Question: How can a full-synthetic 20W-40 benefit my motorcycle?

Answer: AMSOIL synthetic motorcycle oils are very popular because of the following benefits:

  • Smoother performance
  • Easier, quieter shifting
  • Noticeably cooler operation
  • Industry-leading engine and transmission wear protection
  • Reduced oil usage
  • Capable of staying in service for twice as long as regular 20W-40 motorcycle oils
  • Exceptional off-season rust and corrosion protection

Question: I have a bunch of AMSOIL 10W-40 Motorcycle Oil leftover for my Victory motorcycle. Am I better off buying this new 20W-40 instead?

Answer: Using the 10W-40 in a motorcycle that calls for 20W-40 is perfectly fine. Remember that the viscosity of 10W-40 and 20W-40 is identical at operating temperature. The bottom line is that there will be zero compromises in terms of wear control when using a 10W-40 instead of a 20W-40. Use up the 10W-40 and worry not.

Question: Can this full synthetic 20W-40 cause clutch slippage problems?

Answer: Absolutely not. Synthetic oils formulated for motorcycle usage do not cause wet-clutch problems. This has been irrefutably proven. Case in point, virtually all motorcycle racers use synthetic oils these days and they torture their clutches beyond imagination. They also need to finish races and cannot afford any power loss due to clutch slippage. AMSOIL synthetic motorcycles oils actually provide cooler operation, which promotes LONGER clutch life!
