Product Information

A premium oil designed for those who demand the absolute best lubrication for their motorcycles. It is the result of extensive research and is specially formulated to excel in all areas unique to motorcycles, including the high temperatures of air-cooled engines, wet-clutch lubrication, extreme-pressure regions of gears and chains and rust protection. Amsoil 20W-40 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil is multi-functional and engineered for Victory® and model-year 2013 and newer Indian® motorcycles.

Amsoil 20W-40 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil provides Indian and Victory riders with the confidence and security that comes with receiving maximum protection and performance for their bikes. It presents a premium alternative to higher-priced manufacturer-branded semi-synthetic oils.

APPLICATIONS

Amsoil OE 15W-40 Synthetic Diesel Oil is recommended for diesel engines and, where appropriate, gasoline engines requiring any of the following specifications:

  • API licensed CJ-4/SN
  • ACEA E9
  • DDC 93K218
  • Cummins CES 20081
  • MB 228.31
  • CAT ECF-3, ECF-2, ECF-1-a
  • Mack EO-O Plus

  • MAN 3575
  • Renault RLD-3
  • MTU Type 2.1

Lowers Resistance, Wear and Temperatures

Amsoil 20W-40 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil is engineered to protect critical components in high-heat conditions. It exceeds the standard for high-temperature film strength to deliver excellent wear protection (see graph) and contains a heavy treatment of anti-wear additives to reduce wear regardless of operating conditions. Amsoil 20W-40 is thermally (heat) stable and contains maximum levels of oxidation-inhibitor additives. It is extremely resistant to breakdown and is engineered to prevent damaging sludge and carbon deposits for superior engine cleanliness.

Reduces Wear for Gears and Chains

Amsoil 20W-40 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil is shear stable and resists thinning from mechanical activity. It performs like a gear lube without the negative effects of extreme-pressure additives, such as poor wet-clutch performance.

Delivers Superior Rust Protection

Motorcycles are prone to rust from storage, humidity and short drives. Rust can cause major damage, such as uncontrolled wear, compression loss and blow-by. Good rust protection, however, comes by design and is not natural to motor oils. Unlike many motorcycle oils, Amsoil 20W-40 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil contains special anti-rust agents, providing outstanding protection against rust and corrosion.

Provides Excellent Wet-Clutch Performance

Amsoil 20W-40 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil contains no friction modifiers and promotes smooth shifting and positive clutch engagement. It controls heat and helps prevent slippage and glazing, while its high TBN helps improve clutch life by resisting the acids that can degrade clutch material.

Catalytic-Converter Compatible

Amsoil 20W-40 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil meets the requirements for emission-system protection and is designed for use in motorcycles with catalytic converters.

Applications

Amsoil 20W-40 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil is recommended for air- or liquid-cooled Indian, Victory and other four-stroke motorcycles calling for a 20W-40 motor oil. It meets API SM, JASO MA and API GL-1 specifications, providing outstanding protection for engines and transmissions.

Compatibility

Amsoil 20W-40 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil is compatible with other synthetic and conventional motor oils. Mixing Amsoil oils with other oils, however, will shorten the oil’s life expectancy and reduce its performance benefits. Amsoil does not support extended drain intervals where oils have been mixed.

Aftermarket oil additives are not recommended for use with Amsoil Synthetic Motorcycle Oils.

Service Life

Amsoil 20W-40 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil is compatible with other conventional and synthetic motor oils; however, mixing oils may shorten the oil's life expectancy and reduce its performance benefits. Amsoil does not support extended drain intervals where oils have been mixed. Aftermarket oil additives are not recommended for use with Amsoil Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil.

  • For on-road use in engines and transmissions, Amsoil 20W-40 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil and Amsoil Ea® Motorcycle Oil Filters are capable of providing premium protection for up to 2X the motorcycle manufacturer-recommended change interval or one year, whichever comes first. Change other brand oil filters at standard intervals.
  • For off-road use in engines and transmissions, change Amsoil 20W-40 Synthetic V-Twin Motorcycle Oil at the standard motorcycle manufacturer-recommended change interval.
  • For racing or in engines modified from the original factory design, no change interval recommendation is made; oil changes are at the owner's discretion.
