AMSOIL Metric Motorcycle Oil 8,000-Mile Torture Test

Motorcyclists expect their bikes to perform flawlessly in all kinds of operating conditions. Whether it’s used for urban mobility, commuting to work, cruising the backroads or touring the country, reliability is paramount.

In conditions like these, your bike can generate extreme heat and undergo stress that can lead to oil consumption and engine and transmission wear. Find out how AMSOIL Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil stands up to an 8,000-mile torture test!



To demonstrate the performance of AMSOIL Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil, it was installed in a high-performance 890cc Yamaha* MT-09.* The bike was rolled onto the dyno and subjected to test conditions designed to generate extreme heat and engine stress.


The bike endured a torture cycle of 8,000 miles of simulated heavy traffic under load. During the test, the oil temperature hit 200°F. At the end of the test, the oil was analyzed, and the engine and transmission were disassembled. AMSOIL Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil delivered excellent wear protection, keeping pistons, cylinders and cams looking like new.



Thanks to its 100% synthetic formulation and advanced additives, AMSOIL Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil maintained its protective viscosity despite extreme heat and shearing forces while also limiting the amount of wear metals.


The bike required no top-off oil during the test, demonstrating AMSOIL Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil’s excellent resistance to oil consumption. Plus, the oil resisted mechanical shear to provide excellent transmission protection and maintain the bike’s smooth shifting.


Give your bike the protection it needs with AMSOIL Synthetic Metric Motorcycle Oil.
